WICHITA, KANSAS, July 1, 2016 – Airxcel Inc. announced July 1 that Jeff Rutherford has been promoted to President and CEO of the company. Rutherford joined Airxcel in June of 2013 bringing to the business a wealth of experience in manufacturing and business leadership. “Airxcel and its brands, Coleman-Mach, Suburban, Maxxair, Marvair and ICE, have earned a leadership position in their respective markets through the efforts of many talented people committed to providing excellent product and service to our customers.” Rutherford said. “Building on this legacy committed to growth in brands and product offering will lead to opportunities for our 900 plus employees building product in the USA and our business partners.”

Rutherford replaces Mel Adams who is retiring as an active employee of the company after founding and leading the company during the past 25 years. Adams will continue to be a member of Airxcel’s Board of Directors and will continue to provide advice and guidance to the board and the company leadership team. “I have been blessed and fortunate to work most of my career in the RV Industry where one will not find any finer people to work with from suppliers, manufacturers, dealers, and end users,” Adams noted. “Jeff and his senior leadership team are highly capable and committed to growing the company which will lead to bigger opportunities for employees and business partners.” 


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.
