Carrier Group History

In 1902 a publisher named Sackett-Wilhelms Lithographing & Publishing Company of Brooklyn, New York hired Willis Carrier (1876 – 1950), an engineer, to develop a system to control humidity for its four color press system. Historians recognize this as the first modern air conditioner.

Carrier applied for a patent in 1904 which was granted as U.S. Patent 808,897 in 1906.

On discovering that "constant dew-point depression provided practically constant relative humidity" in 1906, Carrier applied for a patent for an automatic control system in 1907. He received patent U.S. Patent 1,085,971 in 1914.
