In 1939, Mingledorffs Inc. was founded by Walter Lee Mingledorff. He was 25 at the time. The Company was located in Savannah, Georgia and originally started as a heating and cooling equipment installation contractor. The first job Mingledorff ever did was for his father in law.
During WWII, Mingledorffs Inc. ceased all operations to help in the war effort. Mr. Mingledorff himself went to work on minesweepers for the US Navy, and many employees went to work for the defense industry or served overseas. At the end of the war, the company began operations again, becoming a direct distributor for Carrier Company and adding diversity by expanding into the retail appliance business.
Today, Mingledorffs Inc. has over ? locations across the south. The company has also obtained full distribution rights of Carrier and Bryant for the majority of Alabama, the panhandle of Florida and Southeast Mississippi. Since 1958, Mingledorff’s has concentrated on our core business as a wholesale distributor to air conditioning contractors and industrial accounts. Our number one objective is to provide dealers and contractors the tools and equipment for success.
