Emerson Electric Manufacturing Company was founded in St. Louis in 1890 to produce the new AC induction motors that would contribute to the development of the industrial revolution in the United States. With the introduction of the "Meston Fan," which was based on the alternating motor invented by company co-founder Alexander Meston, Emerson solved the challenge of cooling workers in offices and factories in hot and humid climates with an immediate gain in productivity giving an instant "payback." From 1895 Emerson focused on the manufacture of high-quality ceiling and desk-top fans as a domestic market also opened up.
