In 1955, a script logo was introduced. General Motors sold the brand to Westinghouse in 1979, which, in its turn, sold it to Electrolux in 1986. It was then that a new crown logo was adopted. During the following decades, the Frigidaire experimented with crown emblems until in 2001 it returned to its iconic script wordmark.
