Williamson-Thermoflo is an independent business unit of Weil-McLain, which is a subsidiary of SPX Corp. SPX posted revenues of about $1.4 billion in 2017.
Williamson was established in 1890 and Thermoflo was founded in 1946. They partnered in 1999 to become Williamson-Thermoflo and were acquired by Weil-McLain the same year. SPX was founded in Muskegon, Mich., in 1911 as The Piston Ring Co. and acquired Weil-McLain in 2001.
Despite the 1999 partnership of the two manufacturers, the company today sells its furnaces, boilers and air conditioners under two brands: Williamson and Thermoflo. The company promotes the former brand for its easy-to-service design and durable performance, while noting the latter brand’s value and range of heating capacities.

The company also manufactures both an oil-fired and a gas-fired steam boiler. The company’s boilers are constructed of cast iron and are available in models with up to 91 percent AFUE except for the wall-mounted stainless steel Freestyle unit, which has an AFUE of above 92 percent.
