We became SPX Cooling Tech in 2005, but our company is more than a century old. We’re formed from some of the most successful companies in the cooling industry: Marley, Recold, Ceramic, Balcke, Davenport and Hamon Dry Cooling.
Balcke & Co. was founded in Germany in 1894 and became a world leader in cooling towers in the early 1900s. Marley was founded in the United States in 1922 as the Power Plant Equipment Company before becoming The Marley Company in 1926. Recold was founded in 1932 in Brea, California. These companies invented and patented most of the industrial cooling tower innovations and technologies in use today.
