Neuco, Inc. has announced the death of its co-founder, Howard Neustadt, on June 3, 2007, at the age of 88. He devoted his life to directing Neuco, Inc. into what it has become today, a leading master distributor of HVACR controls. Applying a strong-minded work ethic and providing service levels beyond expectations is how he carried forth with what has been referred to as “the Neustadt Tradition,” which began 100 years ago on the west side of Chicago by his father, John Neustadt, at the company then known as Neustadt Coal, Hay & Grain.
Howard Neustadt is survived by 8 children, 14 grandchildren and 6 great-grandchildren.
Neuco, Inc. will continue under the current ownership of his nephew, William Neustadt, along with two of Howard’s sons, Paul and Jon Neustadt.
