Transport refrigeration equipment specialist Carrier Transicold, along with Carrier, is commemorating the 110th anniversary of the invention of modern air conditioning by founder Willis H. Carrier.
To celebrate the 110th milestone, the company launched a special website, dedicated to its rich history. Carrier has also released a hardcover book, Weathermakers to the World, chronicling the entrepreneurial spirit of Willis Carrier and the robust history of modern air conditioning.
“In the early 1900s, air conditioning was primarily an industrial application that enabled countless industries to thrive with candy-making companies, textile mills and theaters some of the most enthusiastic early adopters,” said Geraud Darnis, President and CEO, UTC Climate, Controls & Security. “Over the years, Carrier’s innovations looked to make possible what was previously impossible.
Today our focus remains true to our heritage as we continually push the envelope to create energy efficient, environmentally responsible products for both commercial and residential applications in all areas of the world.”
