Frigidaire is a brand of consumer and commercial appliances. Frigidaire was founded as the Guardian Frigerator Company in Fort Wayne, Indiana, and developed the first self-contained refrigerator in 1916. In 1918, William C. Durant, a founder of General Motors, personally invested in the company and in 1919, it adopted the name Frigidaire. The brand was so well known in the refrigeration field in the early 20th century that many Americans called any refrigerator, whatever its brand, a "Frigidaire." The name Frigidaire or the earlier version, Frigerator, may be the actual origin of the slang term "fridge."
