Pax-Sun, Inc. was formed in February 1978 for the purpose of purchasing the assets of Poulan- Jones, Inc., a residential heating, air conditioning and sheet metal fabricating company. The purchase was consummated in March and Pax-Sun, Inc. began doing business on March 15, 1978. The remainder of that year, sales totaled approximately $250,000.

After that first year sales grew steadily until 1986 when sales were almost $1.3 million. Sales for 2006 were approximately $965,000. Product mix has changed from almost 100% residential sales and service in 1978 to 20% Commercial Installations; 16% Residential Installations; 24% Commercial and Residential Service, 4% Miscellaneous Sheet metal Fabrication and controls, and 36% Engineering Services.

Design engineering is the area that has shown the greatest growth for the company over the past three years. Since 1994, T. L.
