100 Years of Trane

April 10, 2013

Trane 100 Year LogoOver the past 100 years, Trane has defined the building industry by delivering performance, innovation, commitment and knowledge to bring comfort, efficiency and productivity to our customers.

In many ways Trane is a classic American success story that grew into a global one. It began with our founder, James Trane, a Norwegian immigrant who opened his own plumbing shop in La Crosse, WI, in 1885.

With the inspiration of cold Wisconsin winters, James Trane invented a new low-pressure heating system he proudly called the Trane Vapor Heating System. His son, Reuben, was just back from college with a degree in mechanical engineering, so father and son began manufacturing operations in 1910 and incorporated as The Trane Company in 1913.

Damuth Trane is proud to be a part of the Trane name that has identified products and technology that has changed the H.V.A.C industry. As a franchised agent for Trane, Damuth Trane is the exclusive authorized representative of Trane commercial products and services in Hampton Roads and Northeastern North Carolina.
