The 118-Year History of Curtis Mathes Products

George Curtis Mathes established an early distributorship for Philco radio products in Amarillo: the Mathes Company. Prior to World War II, the company was moved to Fort Worth. Following the war the company became Mathes Coolers and began manufacturing fans, evaporative coolers, and room air conditioners. This was the first popular line of these products to be offered in Texas, and later in the western United States.

He also manufactured furniture by contract and high-quality cabinetry for his own products. In 1957 he established the Curtis Mathes Corporation, the only family-owned company of its kind, manufacturing high fidelity entertainment systems, black-and-white televisions and color televisions. The products were manufactured in Athens, Texas and several other locations, and were distributed throughout the United States.
