Armstrong Celebrates 75 Year Anniversary
Armstrong Limited, a leading supplier of quality, high-efficiency HVAC and fluid-handling equipment for residential, commercial and industrial applications is proud to announce the company is celebrating its 75th year of operations.
Samuel Allan Armstrong founded the company in 1934 in the midst of The Great Depression. From there, under the leadership of James A.C. Armstrong, Samuel’s son, the company grew from one manufacturing facility to include plants around the world. James Armstrong established the future direction of the company by investing in new technologies and expanding the company into new markets. In 1990, James passed the company to his two sons, Charles and Jim Armstrong.
Now a third-generation family-owned business, Armstrong’s presence in the HVAC market has extended far beyond the borders of its North American roots. The company has survived four major recessions, and grown to become a leader in the industry. Armstrong was one of the first to offer the vertical in-line pump (1969). Years later, the company was among the first to introduce sensorless pump control (1997).
Armstrong is now leading the HVAC industry with its ECO:nomics sustainability platform and Design Envelope solutions. These solutions include both products and services, designed to save on capital and energy costs. Charles Armstrong, the company’s president, is a passionate supporter of sustainability and carbon reduction initiatives. He has rallied the organization around the ECO:nomics platform, and lent his expertise to establishing the position of a lower carbon footprint at no extra cost. This statement has become the tagline for Armstrong’s new ECO:nomics platform.
One example of ECO:nomics is a recent project done at Humber College in Toronto, Canada. The College needed to replace its aging and outdated chiller plant, and meet its commitment to reducing energy consumption and greenhouse gases. To meet these requirements, the College chose to install the Armstrong Integrated Plant Control (IPC 11550) with Hartman LOOP ™ Technology and two pre-fabricated pump stations. The College’s Maintenance and Operations Manager reports the new HVAC system saved the College close to 50% in energy consumption and over $100,000 in combined energy and operational costs, over a one-year period.
