In the late 1940's Mr. Judson Coates wanted to develop a tubular infra-red or radiant heater. In conjunction with H.A.Merrick, Mr. Coates spent a long period of development until the early 1950's when the Merco heat tube, as it is known today, was developed to a production stage. The name Merco was derived from the names, Merrick & Coates, MerCo.
