1 AUG 2017
USA: Emerson has marked the 150th anniversary of its industrial refrigeration business Vilter.
 
Founded in Milwaukee in 1867 for general jobbing and the manufacture of slide-valve steam engines, Vilter was responsible for one of Milwaukee’s first air conditioning installations and one of its first unit coolers installs.

In 1917, Vilter provided a 500 ton ice plant to store 5,000 tons of beef for the troops in Europe. During World War II, the company built pack ice machines for use in steam ships moving food stuffs to troops in both Europe and the Pacific.
 
It provided air conditioning equipment to the sports palace used in the 1960 Rome Olympic Games and was the official sponsor of US Bobsled and Skeleton teams for the 2010 Winter Olympics held in Vancouver, BC.
