When was the business founded?: "1990."
How did your business come to be?: "After completing trade school in Phoenix and working in the HVAC-R (Heat, Vent, AC, and Refrigeration) industry there for eight years, I returned home to Michigan. After working for a commercial company for three years, I started up my own company to hopefully stay busy year round."
Why did you choose to locate to Hartland?: "Although we have a Fenton mailing address, we actually live in Hartland. I met my wife here and our two sons went to Hartland schools and now attend school at U of M Flint."
What kind of services do you offer?: "We offer repair services to residential homes and commercial businesses. Typically we diagnose and repair equipment, with an emphasis on minimum down time. Even after being in the business 25 plus years, we constantly attend classes and seminars to keep up with the latest technology. A fair percentage of our work is in the commercial kitchens found
in restaurants and other businesses."
What's a fact about your business that most customers probably don't know?: "Most customers probably don't know that we strive to get the problem solved and back to normal in hours, not days. Also, people are usually surprised to learn we fix commercial ice machines. Ice cream, slush, and custard machines as well."
What do you want your business to be best known for?: "Honesty and integrity."
What's your most popular product or service?: "The fast response and repair."
