Salvatore Giordano, chairman emeritus of HVAC product manufacturer Fedders Corporation, died on Feb. 22, 2003.

Known to many as a pioneer in air-conditioning manufacturing, Mr. Giordano was reportedly the first to apply mass-production techniques to reduce the cost of manufacturing room air-conditioners.

In 1945, Mr. Giordano negotiated the purchase of a controlling interest in Fedders Manufacturing Company of Buffalo, NY, U.S. a small metal-fabricating company founded in 1896 that had diversified into the heat transfer field with the manufacture of automotive and refrigeration products. The company capitalized on Fedders' heat transfer background and moved aggressively into the design and development of the newly introduced room air-conditioner. It began marketing private label units in 1946 and its own FEDDERS brand 2 years later.

Today, Fedders is known as a leading global manufacturer of air treatment products, including air-conditioners, air cleaners, dehumidifiers and humidifiers, and thermal technology products with operations in the U.S., China, India, Singapore, Philippines, United Kingdom, Spain, and Germany.

Mr. Giordano is survived by his wife of 70 years, Carmela, two sons, Joseph, formerly president of NYCOR, Inc., and his wife, Charlotte. and Salvatore, Jr., chairman since June 2001 and CEO of Fedders since January 1988, and his wife, Anne. He is also survived by two sisters, nine grandchildren, and 24 great grandchildren.
