Patton Sheet Metal Works was opened in 1921 by James Monroe (Jim) Patton. The Company began by making water troughs for horses. Jim ran the Company until 1947, when it was taken over by William Robert (Bill) Patton. Bill grew the company into the HVAC industry and ran Patton Sheet Metal Works until selling the Company to his son, Michael Robert (Mike) Patton.

Mike began at the Company as an estimator in 1967, and bought the Company in 1984. Mike expanded the Company into the computer age, employing the latest CAD systems available at the time. As sheet metal work gave way to air conditioning, Mike changed the name of the Company in 1997 to Patton Air Conditioning to better reflect the Company’s operations.
