Ltd., a publicly-owned company headquartered in South Korea. In 2017, Samsung Electronics Co. earned revenues of approximately $222.81 billion.

Corporate History

Samsung was founded in 1938 in Korea by Byung-Chull Lee. In 1980, Samsung Electronics began producing air conditioners.

In August 2014, Samsung Electronics purchased U.S. air conditioning firm Quietside LLC to help strengthen its “smart home” business.

Product Lines

Samsung offers floor-standing, wall-mounted and window air conditioners with electronic touch pads or mechanical dials, some of which are Energy Star-rated. Top wall-mount units, such as the AR5000, feature a digital inverter for increased efficiency and a triangular design for improved circulation. These units can also be monitored and controlled remotely from a smartphone app.

The company also promotes a number of split heat pumps, either wall- or ceiling-mounted, including some options intended to be a decorative addition to any room. These systems can provide 2-, 3- or 4-zone heating.
