Our History

Expert from "The Illuminating Engineer" - Elmer W. Gillmer - founder of the companyOutstanding in our field… for 100 years!

The company was started by Elmer Gillmer in 1893, in Warren, Ohio, and was known as the Peerless Electric Company. In 1959, H.K. Porter purchased the company, and in 1988, the company was purchased again, this time by HBD Industries.

In 1992, the fan and blower operation was moved to its present location of Hot Springs. For a few years, the company was known as Madison Manufacturing and later the name was changed to Peerless Blowers.

Looking Ahead: A Fresh Perspective

The next phase in the Peerless evolution is inspired by the spirit of those in Hot Springs that have lived and breathed the company every day for many years. Working together with savvy European partners, the company has merged its capabilities, as well as buffeted new energy and innovation into the brand and product line. Long-time industry reps and clients can plan to be blown away by the tighter turnaround times and a more functional online database with updated pricing and sleeker sales tools.
