History of Gibson Stoves

Frigidaire brand history goes back to 1916 when it began as the Guardian Refrigerator Company in Fort Wayne, Indiana and was the brainchild of Alfred Mellowes. When this company verged on bankruptcy, William C. Durant, the president of General Motors Corp., took over the business. It was named Frigidaire and moved to Detroit in 1919. Business started picking up in 1921 when it was brought under Delco Light, a subsidiary of General Motors in Dayton, Ohio.

By 1930, the company diversified into production of kitchen equipment and other domestic appliances, and even machine guns during the World War. In 1979, it was acquired by WCI (White Consolidated Industries) which was in turn taken over by the Swedish company Electrolux and re-named Frigidaire.
