Who makes Coleman Mach Air Conditioners?

Coleman-Mach: A Look Back at 55 Years of HVAC Excellence in the Recreational Vehicle Industry.


Coleman-Mach has come a long way since its inception in 1967 when Sheldon Coleman, the head of the Coleman Company, instructed his team to design an air conditioner for motorhomes after experiencing uncomfortable sleeping conditions due to the heat. The result was the PolarPal, the first RV air conditioner, which was launched in 1967.

Today, Coleman-Mach is a leading manufacturer of HVAC products for the recreational vehicle industry, with over 8 million units produced for RVs and specialty vehicles worldwide. The company has diversified its product line and expanded to other recreational industries such as boats and off-road vehicles.

Over the past 55 years, Coleman-Mach has developed a diverse portfolio of air conditioners, heat pumps, ceiling assemblies, climate control accessories, thermostats, and conversion kits to better serve the needs of recreational lifestyles. Their products are designed to meet the unique needs of RVers, boat enthusiasts, and off-road adventurers alike.

Coleman-Mach is now part of the Airxcel family of brands that includes Maxxair, Aqua-Hot, CAN, Cleer Vision, Dicor Products, ECI, MCD Innovations, Suburban, United Shade, Velarium, and Vixen Composites. The company is headquartered in Wichita, Kansas, and continues to be a leader in climate control systems, providing high-quality and reliable products to customers worldwide.
