Carrier Releases History Book

FARMINGTON, Conn. — To mark the 110th anniversary of the invention of modern air conditioning by Dr. Willis H. Carrier — inventor and founder of the company that bears his name — Geraud Darnis, president and CEO, UTC Climate, Controls & Security presented “Weathermakers to the World” to the Library of Congress in front of a group of more than 125 attendees, including customers, channel partners, association leaders, and elected officials.

“Books tell us who we are. They reflect our history, our science, and our society,” Darnis said. “We’re releasing the book in 2012 to mark the 110th anniversary of the invention of modern air conditioning by Dr. Willis Carrier. Just imagine a world without air conditioning. We are healthier, more productive, and more comfortable thanks to his genius.”

The 144-page, hardcover book, which contains little-known vignettes about Carrier’s life and work, was written by Eric Schultz, retired president of Sensitech, a Carrier company.

After his initial invention, Carrier went on to file more than 80 patents that provide man-made control over temperature, humidity, ventilation, and indoor air over the course of his career.

“The ‘Weathermakers to the World’ book honors Dr. Carrier’s legacy. By daring to dream big, he improved our world with new technology that mastered the indoor environment,” said John Mandyck, chief sustainability officer, UTC Climate, Controls & Security. “Our employees around the world work every day to reinvent the industry started by Dr. Carrier through their continued dedication to innovation.”

The book is just part of Carrier’s celebratory events to honor the 110th anniversary. For more information about the book and other events, visit www.williscarrier.com.
