The maker of kitchenware and detergent products that many of us have relied on for years is saying it doesn’t have enough disheshowers in the U.S. The statement came after a California state court upheld the company’s $2.9 billion $5 billion contract with the nation’s largest dishwasher maker.
“We are pleased to announce that we are pleased that the court upheld our contract and are looking forward to our future in the United States,” the company said in a statement.
The company also announced it will work with state and local government agencies to “develop a program to provide all customers with dishwasher-safe appliances.”
The deal, which is expected to cost $1 billion over 25 years, is the latest in a series of corporate mergers that have rocked the nation.
“Today’s announcement reflects the fundamental shift in the nation,” Cook said in the statement.
“The world is going to have to evolve with the times.”
Cook’s decision comes as dishwashers are becoming more popular, with new models like the Dishwasher Plus Plus and the KitchenAid Plus being launched in the last year.
They are becoming so popular that they are even being used in restaurants.
Some restaurants have stopped serving them, and some grocery stores are phasing them out.
But the dishwasher industry is thriving, with sales up more than 25% last year, according to the American Association of Dishwashers.
And Cook, whose company makes both dishwashes and detergents, said the market has grown faster than the industry expected.
“In the first three quarters of 2018, we sold more than 2.6 million dishwashears and over 2.3 million dish detergants,” Cook wrote.
“This represents more than one-third of all dishwasher sales in the country.”
Cook said his company was confident the agreement with Dishwashes would keep its company in the marketplace.
“Dishwashes are our most popular product,” Cook told CNNMoney in a phone interview.
“They are our fastest growing product.
And we will continue to deliver great customer experiences to the consumer.”
The company has been on a hiring spree for several years.
Last month, Cook announced he was taking a $3.2 billion buyout offer from San Francisco-based Dishwasheets, a move that raised eyebrows at the time.
In December, Cook said the company would invest $5 million in an online platform that would enable consumers to buy the dishwasher and deterger.
“With the help of a dedicated community of consumers, our business can continue to grow, innovate and serve our customers well,” Cook added in the company statement.
He also said Dishwasher Plus would be available on shelves in California and Oregon by March.
Cook also said the partnership with DishwasherPlus will help expand its U.K. business, where it has nearly $300 million in sales and about 1,000 employees.
Cook’s statement said Dishwasherplus would continue to sell the dishwashing and deterging products to other countries.
