The Rheem Story
Rheem Manufacturing has been a trusted name in the United States for many years. One of the world’s leading manufacturers of central heating and cooling products, Rheem distributes its full line of residential and commercial products around the globe.
Rheem Manufacturing Company was established in the mid-1920s when brothers Richard and Donald Rheem acquired a galvanizing plant in San Francisco, California. They opened another plant near Los Angeles a decade later and began manufacturing water heaters. By 1936, Rheem had coast to coast distribution, and during the 1940s and 1950s, increased its product line to include space heating units for homes, oil furnaces and air conditioners. As the company grows, it continues to expand its line of residential and commercial products worldwide.
During the last few years, Rheem has increased its presence worldwide and has established an extensive sales, service, and parts distribution network to address the special needs of our customers.
