AIRXCEL, INC. - 25th Anniversary Celebration

Wichita, KS:  Airxcel, Inc. proudly notes its 25th year in business.  Founded in 1991 with the acquisition of two business units of the Coleman Company, Airxcel has grown to become a leading designer and manufacturer of climate control solutions and complementary products for a variety of end markets under the brand names of Coleman-Mach, Suburban, Maxxair, Marvair, and Industrial Climate Engineering (ICE). 

The company’s products include air conditioners, furnaces, water heaters, cooking appliances and ventilation systems for recreation vehicles; and climate control equipment for telecommunication shelters, schools and industrial/commercial markets. 

Airxcel’s 900 employees based in Wichita, KS, Dayton, TN, Cordele, GA and Elkhart, IN manufacture and distribute over 750,000 end products throughout the world.

“Airxcel finds its roots in the RV Industry where most of its products are delivered today,” according to Mel Adams, CEO.  He added, “We are very grateful for the industries Airxcel participates in and especially for our employees and customers.”

Jeff Rutherford, Airxcel’s president, commented, “We look forward to a strong future, building on our culture of quality, innovation and performance which helped us reach this milestone.”

To that end, Airxcel is excited about the release of several new products that bring real value to manufacturers, dealers and consumers.  The new Coleman-Mach 10 mid profile air conditioner, Suburban On Demand tankless water heater, and a new FANMATE vent and fan rain cover from Maxxair complement the company’s broad product offering.


On November 13th, 2012 the U.S. Securities Exchange Commission (SEC) issued a Final Rule pursuant to Section 1502 of the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act. The Rule requires businesses that file with the SEC and manufacturing products that require Conflict Minerals for their production or functionality to file a report with the SEC which includes, along with other information, measures taken to exercise “due diligence” regarding the source and chain of custody of all such minerals. Conflict Minerals include the following: gold, tantalum, tin and tungsten, or any other mineral or its derivatives determined by the U.S. Secretary of State to directly or indirectly finance or benefit armed groups in the Democratic Republic of the Congo or an adjoining country.

AIRXCEL, Inc. is a privately owned company and does not report with the Securities Exchange Commission (SEC). The rule applies to all companies that supply materials to publicly traded companies, or any of their operating subsidiaries, even if the supplier is not a publicly traded company. Several of our customers are registered with the SEC and may seek information and assistance from us regarding our suppliers and sources of supply.

AIRXCEL, Inc. will take the appropriate actions to support our customers in an effort to achieve a common goal. AIRXCEL, Inc. does not intentionally purchase directly or indirectly any items containing Conflict Minerals.
