A Brief Look at Lennox’s History
As we mentioned above, both Glendale and Lennox have been in business for many, many years. Our history and story can be found here.
But what about Lennox? You’re probably not surprised to discover that their history is as interesting as they come. Let’s take a brief look!
It starts in 1855 — April 15, to be exact. That’s when David Lennox — Dave to his friends — was born in Detroit, Michigan. He may have inherited his mechanical aptitude from his father, a railroad mechanic. The elder Lennox fought and died for the Union in the Civil War when little Dave was just 8 years old.
Fast forward a few years. In his mid-20s, Lennox moved to Marshalltown, Iowa, where his mechanical prowess caught the attention of local businessmen. By the time he was 40, he had developed what historians say was the very first riveted-steel furnace. Up to that point, furnaces had typically been manufactured using cast iron, which wasn’t nearly as durable or safe as steel.
Long story short: The furnace was an instant hit. Ultimately, he sold the business in 1904, but he never stopped working.
Today, the company that bears his name is still going strong. In 2018, the company had more than 11,000 employees and revenues approaching $4 billion.
As for Dave, he died at his home in Marshalltown in 1947 at the age of 91.
Lennox and Glendale
The Lennox company continues to be an industry leader. You may have even seen a couple of actors portraying Dave in commercials that have been broadcast for generations.
