About Climate Engineers
Climate Engineers, Inc. was founded in 1947 when a lumber broker, James H. Maloney, formed a series of companies for investment purposes. An umbrella Corporation called Green Gable Builders Incorporated, spun off Continental Forest Products Company, which in turn had a subsidiary, Climate Engineers Incorporated. Green Gable Builders, Inc., was a manufacturer of prefabricated metal buildings, headquartered in Onawa, Iowa. It was logical that such a business should have access to a metal forming operation; thus, Climate Engineers, Inc., was founded. Climate Engineers was engaged primarily in residential heating installation during its early years, mostly in rural areas. In 1953 the company was not a large operation, grossing only $105,000. In 1955 the firm entered the commercial heating, cooling and ventilation market because of the popularity of air conditioning. By 1959, Climate Engineers was doing commercial and industrial businesses only.
