Rinnai promoted Frank Windsor to the position of president of the Peachtree City, Georgia-based manufacturer of gas appliances, including tankless water heaters.


Windsor joined Rinnai as general manager in 2014 and was later promoted to COO in 2016. During his time with Rinnai, Windsor has led major strategic initiatives including the start of the organization’s North American Manufacturing facility in Griffin, Georgia.


The facility produced its first tankless water heater in April of 2018, making Rinnai America Corporation the first major tankless water heating brand to manufacture in the United States, the company said.


In 2019 the company will open a state-of-the-art training and innovation center at the headquarters in Peachtree City that will be used to develop innovative products for the North American market. With the future in mind, Windsor also established an innovation department in 2018 that combines engineering and product management teams and is responsible for developing new product initiatives for existing and new markets.


“Rinnai has identified the North American market as a strategic growth vehicle for the global organization,” said Yuji Kondo, director and senior managing executive officer. “We have achieved significant milestones under Frank’s leadership and look forward to continuing to expand our presence in North America.”


Prior to joining Rinnai, Windsor spent 23 years with Kohler Company in various leadership positions leading up to VP of sales kitchen & bath Americas.


“I am proud to be part of a thriving business that is investing in the growth of the North American market,” said Windsor. “Our vision is ‘enhancing lives by changing the way water is heated.’ We have a talented team in place and are well positioned to continue to drive the growth of the water heating and space heating categories.”
