Sellers Manufacturing Company was founded in Chicago in 1931 when new industries were looking for ways to take advantage of natural gas energy. Sellers pioneered gas-fired equipment such as boilers, burners, water heating equipment and bakery equipment.
1931. Revited construction, 1 HP boilers, manufactured gas, telegrams and 1920s automobiles were the standard when Kelly Sellers went into the gas fired boiler business.
As the U.S. prepared for war in the early 1940s, the government drafted Sellers Manufacturing ￼expertise. Over 10,000 large volume water heaters were produced in record time by Sellers for Army installations throughout the United States. Many of these installations are still being used today.
In 1947, as pipelines spread natural gas throughout the south, the company moved to its present home in Danville, Kentucky. Here it has brought to an art form the design and construction of large volume water heaters, gas and oil boilers, boiler feed systems and deaerators.
