Our company began in Clarksville in 1967, founded by J.C. Davis as J.C. Davis Company. The new company did electrical work primarily in the new home construction market. Soon after, the company added central heating and air conditioning to its product offering. The company grew over the next two decades to include commercial and existing home air conditioning and heating services. It was one of the first companies to participate in the TVA Heat Pump Program at its inception in 1979. The program enabled home owners to purchase Central Air Heat Pumps with a low interest loan. The company achieved the status of the leader in home installations and service of equipment.
In 1987, the company was sold to Ron and Linda Morton. Ron Morton began his career as a high school teacher and coach in the late 1960's. In the early 70's, he recognized the career potential in the new central heating and air conditioning industry. In 1974, Ron started in the industry as a manufacturer's representative for York. He also was a representative for Lennox, GE and the Trane Company. From there, Ron purchased J.C. Davis Company, and it was eventually re-named Morton Mechanical. Linda Morton continued to teach until retiring in 1994, then joined the company full time.
In the beginning, the Morton's made a commitment to become the best service company and to design and install the best air conditioning and heating systems for energy efficiency, quality and reliability. They continue achieving that goal today primarily through the commitment to quality from the people who work for the company. The company invests in training and commits itself to making the company a great place to work. Our employees take pride in their work and the proper application of the products we install and service. Two-thirds of our team has been with the company 5 years or more, one-third 20 years or more.
Our success has been built through our great customers and our people.
In 2012, Morton Mechanical re-branded itself as Morton Air Conditioning. We made this change to more effectively represent what we do best. Morton Air Conditioning is comprised of our service and replacement installation group. Our commercial construction and design group will still operate as Morton Mechanical, our corporate name. We are excited about this new change and our new logo.
Through dedication and hard work, Morton Air Conditioning has grown into one of the largest and most respected heating and air conditioning service companies in our community.
