PHOENIX — Convair Cooler Corp., the North American subsidiary of Seeley International of Adelaide, Australia, recently moved into a larger facility here.

With 25,000 square feet of space, the new location nearly doubles the size of Convair's previous quarters. According to Frank Seeley, Convair chairman of the board, the move allows the company to provide better service to its customers throughout the U.S., Canada, and Mexico.

“Our growth over the last several years has been gratifying,” said Seeley. “We now have a facility that will allow us to reach new levels while providing customers with world class products and services.”

More than a third of the company’s sales are outside of Australia, encompassing more than 60 countries. Convair’s full line of portable indoor and rooftop evaporative coolers include the Breezair model, a rooftop evaporative cooler designed for lasting performance in areas with extreme temperatures. According to the company, the outer shell of the cooler is made from a long-lasting polymer that doesn’t rust over time, which allows it to last longer than a standard metal evaporative cooler.

Convair’s new address is 1202 N. 54th Avenue, Building 2, Suite 117, Phoenix, AZ 85003. The phone number is the same (602-353-8066). Convair’s Web address is
