Excellence in Air Distribution
Leo Krueger emigrated from Latvia and came to Tucson via Detroit, where he had been trained as a machinist and mechanic. He went to work for one of the largest sheetmetal contractors in the area, designing the tooling for a line of residential grilles for use with evaporative coolers, a regionally new product. Two years later, his employer offered the tooling and equipment, used to make the residential product, for $500, and Leo Krueger began his storied career in a garage on Rellito Street.
Krueger's first foray into the commercial market was the predecessor to today's 800 series grille and register product, introduced in the late 50s. With it, he began to secure contracts in what would still be strong markets for Krueger to this day in Southern California and Washington D.C. Krueger was an aggressive supplier during the rapid government expansion in the 50s.
Krueger's second major commercial product was modeled after a series of louvered designs rapidly growing in popularity. The SH series diffuser was born in the late 50s. Krueger introduced a new line of perforated diffusers in the early 1960s, developed in cooperation with the engineering department at the University of Arizona. During the development of the perforated diffuser, Krueger began establishing credibility through the development of the first test lab and genuine performance data.
