FORT SMITH, Ark. (AP) - The former Whirlpool Corp. plant in Fort Smith has been sold.
Whirlpool confirmed the deal Thursday but did not release terms of the transaction.
The buyer is Canada-based Infinity Asset Solutions Inc. The company specializes in disposing of assets of public and private companies.
