Tecumseh Compressors & Condensing Units

Raymond Herrick founded Tecumseh Products Company in Tecumseh, MI in 1934. In 1938, Tecumseh developed the first hermetically sealed compressor, significantly increasing appliance longevity and reliability. In 1947, a Tecumseh compressor was used in the first window air conditioning unit. In the early 1960s, Tecumseh became the largest U.S. compressor manufacturer. In 2015, Mueller Industries and Atlas Holdings LLC acquired Tecumseh Products.
