Defunct manufacturers[edit]

This is a list of names of some of the largest independent manufactures that are no longer in existence. This is not intended as a comprehensive list. It would be a difficult undertaking to find and list every company that ever existed that manufactured major home appliances. For example, the 1918 Engineering Directory[1] has eight pages listing approximately 400 manufactures of stoves in the USA. Many of the names of former companies are still used as brand names by other companies. These are listed in the section on active brand names.
