NAMCO Div. is the creation of John R. Neal, Sr., our former chairman and Chief Operating Officer. Incorporated in 1981, NAMCO spent most of the 1980’s private labeling its systems for Taco. As the sales of packaged systems through the TACO agents increased, NAMCO boosters were beginning to spread across America with the Taco label on them. By the end of 1988, Taco made its decision to stop manufacturing packaged systems and granted NAMCO the ability to purchase its products as an OEM, occasionally calling upon NAMCO to produce additional “Taco” boosters and heat transfer packages.
The 1990’s proved to be a time of tremendous growth for NAMCO. Specifications across America can be found displaying NAMCO as the “spec’d” name, rather than being the “or equal” as too often happened in the past. During this time, NAMCO built its current production facility located in Dallas, Texas. This 20,000 sq. ft. facility has proven to be one of our greatest assets. Our material handling capacity exceeds 50 tons with the use of our two overhead cranes. The main door to the facility was designed to permit access by a flatbed trailer large enough to haul the maximum state allowed dimensions. Additionally, our quality and number of manufacturer’s reps carrying the NAMCO line has increased significantly.
