History of Marvair

Muncie Gear Works, Inc.

1910 - 1954

Marvair can trace its roots back to Muncie Gear Works, Inc. of Muncie Indiana, which was founded in 1910 to provide gears for machinery. Muncie Gear Works initiated development of the electric heat pump in 1943 which is the forerunner to Marvair’s current heat pumps and air conditioners. Market considerations in 1950 induced the Marvair Heat Pump Division of Muncie Gear Works to relocate to Cordele, Georgia, completing the relocation in 1954.

Applied Devices


In 1961, Muncie Gear Works was sold to Applied Devices.

The Marvair Division was moved to Atlanta


This action triggered several key management people of Marvair to resign and form a similar corporation using the existing facilities and former employees in Cordele.

Crispaire Corporation


As a result, in 1972, the Crispaire Corporation was formed, purchased the physical plant in Cordele and also was able to buy the Atlanta operation, as well as the Marvair Company trade name and sales outlets. Crispaire was chosen because of being located in Crisp County.

Crispaire found its niche in the heat pump and air conditioner industry. The niches included heat pump and air conditioning products for school classrooms, modular offices, and electronic

Crispaire Corporation merged with E-Tech of Atlanta


The merger provided Crispaire with a new product line and more importantly the expertise in the technology of efficient water heating.

AirXcel, Inc.


In November of 1997, Crispaire Corporation joined with RV Products to form a new company, Airxcel, Inc. RV Products is the world’s leading manufacturer of recreational vehicle air conditioners.



In 2002, since virtually all of our customers knew us as Marvair, the name was officially changed from Crispaire Corp. to Marvair, a division of Airxcel, Inc.



In 2014, the Industrial Climate Engineering (ICE) division of Airxcel was created to market and sell larger capacity air conditioners for industrial applications. In 2016, the ICE division expanded its product line to include HVAC systems for use in hazardous locations.

Suburban Dynaline and DynaPack


In late 2015, the Suburban Dynaline and DynaPack gas fired air conditioners product lines were moved to the Marvair division. All sales and marketing, engineering and production of these products are centered in Cordele.

AirX Climate Solutions


In late 2021, Airxcel, Inc was acquired by Thor, a leading RV manufacturing company. At this time, Marvair was transitioned to a brand of the newly formed AirX Climate Solutions (ACS) and continues to operate as an independent company.
