The Armstrong furnace history

The company that became the successor to the Armstrong Company was founded in 1879 as J. H. Rowley and Company. Rowley had been a salesman for Armstrong, but he was also an inventor and came up with many products that are still used today.

The company merged with Bryant Heater Company in 1940, becoming the primary manufacturer of heating equipment in North America. The company moved to Monroe, Michigan after World War II where they manufactured furnaces under their own name until 1954 when they were bought out by Babcock & Wilcox Company and closed their doors for good.

This section covers the history of Armstrong furnace, from a young piping and painting contractor to one of the world’s leading manufacturers of commercial and industrial heating, ventilating, and air conditioning equipment.

Frank A. Armstrong Jr., the founder of Armstrong Corporation, was born in 1904 in New York City. In 1927, he started his own piping and painting business in New Jersey. He then expanded into sheet metal fabricating in 1939 and began selling products to General Motors to supply their blue-collar factories with ductwork for their new gas-fired central heating units.

Few would argue with the idea that Armstrong is one of the most iconic figures in world history.
