Zamil Air Conditioners began its business operations with the manufacture of window air conditioners and the activity was later expanded to include mini-split type of room air conditioners. Beginning with an humble production capacity in 1974, the company has grown to become the largest producer of Consumer range of air conditioners in the Middle East with a production capacity of over half a million units per year.


As Zamil Air Conditioners started manufacture of central air conditioners as well in 1978, it reorganized itself into two separate business units namely the Consumer Products and Unitary & Applied Products.

 
The two main products produced by Consumer Products Division are - Window air conditioners up to 2 Tons cooling capacity and mini-splits up to 3 Tons cooling capacity. Other products include:
  • Free Standing series - 3 & 4 Tons
  • Ceiling/Floor (C&F) series - 1.5 up to 4 Tons
  • Cassette types - 2 up to 4 Tons

Initially manufacturing under a license agreement for Friedrich - USA, the Consumer Products launched its brand - Classic in 1978. Today with its much grown popularity in Saudi Arabia, Classic and Zamil are almost taken as synonyms for each other.

After its formative years, Classic found its way into nearby Gulf and Levant markets. However, with the emergence of Cooline as a separate business Classic Air Conditioners is now concentrating itself chiefly in the Saudi market only.
