History Of Peerless Premier Appliance Co.
Peerless-Premier Appliance Co. is the result of a merger by two compatible manufacturers of gas and electric ranges and the acquisition of segments of two other range companies. Available at AJ Madison.
Premier Stove Company, founded in 1912, manufactured cast iron, coal and wood stoves at its inception. Later the company marketed a combination coal and gas range. As gas became an important source of fuel, Premier developed a complete gas range line. A full array of electric ranges was engineered as electric cooking grew in popularity.
Today, Peerless-Premier is a complete manufacturer, designing and making its own tools and dies, stamping parts and applying porcelain enamel to the raw steel parts and then assembling those parts into modern gas and electric ranges in 20", 24", 30" and 36" widths. The facilities are housed under one roof, taking up an area of two square blocks in the city of Belleville, Illinois.
