The History of Doucette Industries

Doucette began as a manufacturer of sea-water and fresh-water condensers, suction line heat exchangers and other components for air conditioning and refrigeration applications. In 1976, their SLHE line was listed by Underwriters Laboratory and the company began broadening its customer base from wholesale accounts to OEM'S. Doucette also entered the heat recovery market with a device designed to recover energy from air conditioning and refrigeration systems and used to heat potable water. This device, called a Desuperheater / Water Heater was upgraded in 1977 to include the vented double wall to preclude water contamination and refrigeration system damage. It was the first such device to win an Underwriters Laboratory listing and to meet nationwide health codes. In 1978, the mechanically cleanable vented double wall heat exchanger was introduced to the solar energy market and other markets and won immediate acceptance by all municipal, county, state and federal agencies. A patent was granted on the vented double wall heat exchanger on July 1, 1980.

In 1982, heat exchanger model selections were enhanced and accelerated by computer optimization programs. This allows Doucette to select heat exchangers which fulfill customers' precise requirements; thus assuring the lowest initial cost and most rapid payback.

Doucette acquired the Y/P Products Division of the R G Group in 2006. This strategic purchase widened their product line and customer base through a strong presence in the vibration absorber and flexible metal hose markets.

In 2007, Doucette purchased the Heat Recovery Division of the Trevor Martin Corporation to broaden their heat recovery product line to include Residential and Commerical Heat Recovery Units. This Division remains located in Clearwater, FL. Later in 2007, Doucette bought and moved the assets of Cool Reef, a manufacturer of pool and spa heat exchangers, to their York, PA manufacturing plant. Today, Doucette's business and customer base continue to grow, with over 1,000,000 heat exchangers installed worldwide. They are known by the customers they serve and have earned a reputation for quality products, engineering design flexibility, and rapid manufacturing capabilities.
