For many people, air conditioners just appear as a given—especially in hot climates like Arizona. But the story behind the names that are so familiar today is much richer than one might think. Let’s take a look at the history of the Daikin, Amana and Goodman air conditioners – and the company Suttle Air Systems based in Gilbert, Arizona.
Daikin Industries Ltd. is a publicly traded multinational corporation headquartered in Osaka, Japan. Founded in 1924 by Akira Yamada as Osaka Kinzoku Kogyosho LP (Osaka Metal Working Company Limited Partnership) it has grown to become one of the world’s largest HVAC manufacturers with over 50,000 employees worldwide and operations in more than 150 countries around the globe. Their products include air conditioners, heating systems, refrigeration systems, energy-saving solutions and more.
Amana started out as an appliance maker for hotels and restaurants during Prohibition era America before branching out into residential use appliances such as air conditioning units during World War II. By 1953 they had developed their first residential window-unit air conditioner which was marketed directly to consumers under its own brand name – Amana Corporation – which remains well known today for its high quality HVAC equipment.
Goodman Manufacturing Company was founded in 1975 by Harold V. Goodman (1917–2004). They quickly grew to be one of the largest manufacturers of residential heating and cooling products worldwide with sales topping $1 billion by 1995 making them one of the most successful companies in this field at that time. In 2012 Goodman Manufacturing became part of Daikin Industries Ltd., giving them access to even more resources for product innovation as well as a global reach for their products.
