“2012 was a year of successes for Samsung’s Home Appliance division as we grew to our number one position in the refrigerator category. We will continue our focus in launching home appliances that make a difference in our consumers lives, and I am confident that this will fuel our growth this year as well,” said Robin Kadyan, General Manager of Home Appliances, Samsung Gulf Electronics. 

In its eighth year, Samsung ranked highest in customer satisfaction with refrigerators in the annual J.D Power and Associates 2012 Kitchen and Laundry Appliance Studies SM, a position it held from 2005 to 2010.
