Who is Amana ?

Amana Heating & Air Conditioning, a recognized manufacturer of quality home comfort products and a leader in service and installation, has its roots in Amana, a manufacturer of home appliances.

Amana Appliances was started in Amana, Iowa, by a young entrepreneur, George Foerstner, who accepted a challenge from a local businessman to develop a reliable beverage cooler. The company achieved early success in creating walk-in beverage coolers, or cold storage lockers, for use in plants, grocery stores and restaurants.

Despite a major fire, that destroyed much of the Amana, Iowa facility, Amana was instrumental in supplying walk-in coolers during World War II. As a result of the company’s efforts under such difficult circumstances, Amana received the Army-Navy "E" Award for Excellence.

Amana began building chest freezers in 1945 and two years later, became the first manufacturer to nationally market an upright freezer for the home. In 1949, Amana introduced the first side-by-side refrigerator / freezer.

In 1954, Amana expanded into the area of home comfort products with the introduction of room air conditioners. The company added central air conditioners and heat pumps to production in 1957.

Continued growth of the business led to the opening of a new facility in Fayetteville, Tennessee, in 1968, where the company is still headquartered. Since its opening, the Fayetteville facility has doubled in size and has become the largest employer in Fayetteville.

Over the years the company has continued to raise the bar in the industry in the areas of energy-efficiency and quiet operation. Amana’s reputation for "conditioned comfort" grew along with its family of products, which now includes a full line of residential high-efficiency gas furnaces, central air conditioners, heat pumps and packaged terminal units (PTACs).

In 1992, Amana Heating and Air Conditioning became the first manufacturer of residential heating and air conditioning equipment in the United States to achieve the prestigious ISO 9001 certification, an internationally known standard of excellence.

Amana Appliances and Amana Heating and Air Conditioning were acquired by Goodman Manufacturing Company in 1997. Houston-based Goodman, recognized in the industry as a manufacturer of high quality, innovative products at competitive prices, ranks second in the HVAC industry and is the world’s largest privately held air conditioning, heating and appliance manufacturer.
