For more than a century the Trane name has identified products and technology that stretched the world’s idea of what was possible – a tradition that’s still very much with us.In many ways Trane is a classic American success story that grew into a global one. It began with our founder, James Trane, a Norwegian immigrant who opened his own plumbingshop in La Crosse, WI, in 1885.
Spurred on by brutal Wisconsin winters, James Trane invented a new low-pressurheating system he proudly called the Trane Vapor Heating System. His son, Reuben, was just back from college with a degree in mechanical engineering, so father and son began manufacturing operations in 1910 and incorporated as The Trane Company in 1913. It was Reuben’s invention of the convector radiator in 1923 that firmly established the company’s reputation as an innovator – a reputation the Trane people have been building on ever since.
In 2007 Trane was selected to join the Clinton Climate Initiative, a team of business and government partners assembled by former U.S. President Bill Clinton to reduce greenhouse gas emissions from 40 of the world’s largest cities.
In 1954, Harold V. Goodman, founder of Goodman Manufacturing Company, L.P., became an air conditioning contractor in the rapidly growing city of Houston,Texas. As the steamy Gulf Coast city grew, so did Harold’s business, and by the late 1960s, he was one of the most successful HVAC contractors in the United States.In 1975, Harold entered HVAC manufacturing with the formation of Goodman Manufacturing Company, L.P. The company began as a maker of flexible air duct andplastic blade registers. As this business grew successfully, however, Harold turned his sights to building HVAC equipment, recognizing the industry’s need for a high-quality,lowcost producer of central air conditioning systems. As luck would have it, Harold learned that another HVAC manufacturer was closing its doors and selling off its manufacturing equipment. He quickly stepped in to purchase the shuttering company’s machinery, transported it to a large warehouse in Houston, and in 1982, Goodman entered the market as a manufacturer of central air conditioners and heat pumps.
Goodman’s parent company, Goodman Global, Inc., is the second largest domestic manufacturer of heating, ventilation and air conditioning products for residential and light commercial use based on unit sales.
