Blissfield Manufacturing Company, founded in 1946 by O.W. Farver, is a 4th generation family owned business. We specialize in heat transfer technology within the automotive, off-highway vehicle, commercial refrigeration, and industrial equipment markets.
Our custom manufacturing capabilities accommodate assembly operations as well as specialty products including: complete system design, testing and manufacturing, self-contained condensing units, precision laser-cutting, sheet metal fabrication and contract hydrogen brazing.
Blissfield Manufacturing Company has recently rolled out its ‘Green Technologies’ division which encompasses a variety of environmentally friendly products ranging from restaurant filtration to waste-water remediation.
It began when O.W. Farver established the company in Blissfield, Mich., in 1946 to manufacture refrigeration systems and condensing units. Over the next ten years the company grew and prospered under Mr. Farver's direction, based on his philosophy of providing maximum value to customers with the belief that "we must be a step ahead in our thinking, never once believing we have reached perfection in anything."
In 1956 the company expanded operations to include the contract manufacturing of belt driven refrigeration compressors for the commercial refrigeration industry.
November 1, 1959 marked a major milestone for the growing company. On that date 80% of its factory, and 100% of its inventory, was destroyed by a devastating fire. Employees and suppliers reacted immediately to this disaster and continued to produce and ship products from makeshift surroundings, never missing a shipment during the rebuilding of the factory.
Further expansion and product diversification took place in 1963, when the company began manufacturing steel refrigeration condensers for commercial refrigeration equipment. For over fifty years Blissfield Manufacturing Company has maintained its position as the dominant supplier of condensers to leading beverage vending machine manufacturers in the USA.
This leadership position dictated the building of the Jay Products facility in Portland, Indiana in 1971, for the production of steel condensers and automotive power steering coolers.
Over the next forty years, Blissfield used it's heat transfer technology knowledge and it's base of two manufacturing plants to build leadership in all of the markets it serves. Blissfield has been the exclusive North American distributor of Dorin compressor products for over 20 years and has rights to distribute the products in 15 international countries.
Our foundation is to provide excellence in all we do.
It is our commitment to be the preferred solutions provider to all markets we serve. We are committed to serve our customers, suppliers, co-workers and community with Honesty, Integrity, Trust and Respect.
