ASHLAND CITY, Tenn. A. O. Smith, North America’s largest manufacturer of residential and commercial water heaters, has applied its commercial water heating expertise to its new ProLine® family of commercial-grade residential water heaters.
Commercial-grade quality comes second nature to A. O. Smith thanks to its vertically integrated manufacturing approach. A. O. Smith subsidiaries are responsible for designing, engineering and fabricating many of the residential and commercial components used in its water heaters. And, A. O. Smith remains the only water heater manufacturer that creates its own glass coatings. This allows A. O. Smith to inegrate commercial-grade technology and components into each step of the manufacturing process for all products, including its residential models.
Sharing a tradition of innovation with Johnny Unitas, who invented football’s two-minute drill, A. O. Smith has been an innovator in its industry for more than a century. A. O. Smith offers its customers an additional advantage in that the company designs, builds, distributes and supports the world’s broadest and deepest line of residential and commercial water heaters, as well as commercial boilers. This single-source concept simplifies ordering, installation and service and is backed by 80 years of research and innovation.
