Birmingham Goodman Air Conditioner Dealer
History of Goodman Manufacturing Company, L.P.
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 and plastic 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, low-cost 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.
From the beginning, Harold was dedicated to building HVAC equipment that performed reliably, lasted a long time and solved many of the problems contractors encountered in the design of other companies’ equipment. The philosophies he used to guide his company were simple:
- High quality at low cost equals value
- Maintain low overhead
- Create products that are engineered for reliable long life, utilizing the best components with some of the lowest failures rates in the industry
- Our belief of offering some of the best limited warranties in the marketplace.
These same principals guide Goodman today. We remain focused on providing high-quality products at an affordable price, and protecting them with what we believe to be some of the best warranties in the industry. This clear focus has led to Goodman’s being a leading unit manufacturer of residential and light commercial heating and air conditioning products and systems in North America.
Today Goodman is the value leader in HVAC products--all due to Harold Goodman's vision.
