6 Fascinating Facts About Rheem

1. Rheem made … drums

The original American company, called Rheem Manufacturing Company, actually started out making galvanised steel drums.

2. The full Rheem family

That drum company was founded by brothers Richard Rheem and Donald Rheem, the sons of William Rheem – the former president of the Standard Oil Company of California.

3. That’s quite Ruud

Some historians can’t help saying Ruud when they think of Rheem – because Rheem bought Ruud in 1954. Ruud developed the first-ever automatic hot water system in 1889, which was gas-fired.

4. It was 83 years ago

The first Australian Rheem water heater was made in Sydney in 1939 – two years after the company started making (you guessed it) … drums!

5. What does BHP have to do with it?

BHP made the steel that went into those first Rheem electric hot water systems, and do you know why? The Aussie mining company owned a 50% share.

6. A truly Aussie company

While Rheem may have started out as an American drum manufacturer, the US company was bought out in 1973 – meaning Rheem could claim to being truly Australian. Aussie winemaker Southcorp bought Rheem in 1988, and it’s now controlled by Paloma Co Ltd.
