Electrolux also makes Gibson and Tappan products.
(Although Whirlpool used to be sold as
R.C.A. Whirlpool, Whirlpool
was never owned by R.C.A. It used the name with R.C.A.'s permission
after acquiring R.C.A.'s old Estate division.)
I am indebted to Barnes Appliance Outlet for pointing out this multiplicity of brands by a few companies.
