ST. LOUIS - York International Corp. marked its 130th anniversary with a celebration at the St. Louis Museum. The celebration, which was hosted by the York Unitary Products Group, highlighted the company's contributions to the HVACR industry. The theme of the event was "130 years and just getting started."

Contractors in attendance at the celebration heard remarks from Tom Huntington, UPG president, and Matt Peterson, marketing vice president. They also participated in a raffle for a York Affinity air-conditioning system, IAQ products and a York Talking Thermostat.

Maurice F. Johnston, owner of MS Johnston Co. in Hagerstown, Md., York's longest-tenured dealership, at 64 years, cut the birthday cake to mark the company's milestone.

"York is 130 years old and just getting started. This is a vibrant, dynamic industry, and it's a privilege to be a part of it," said Huntington. "More than a century after the company was founded, York continues to bring innovative technology and products to the heating and air-conditioning market, including our recent introduction of the Affinity series, the new generation of York air conditioners, heat pumps and furnaces."
