Dick came into the business after graduating Cal Poly Pomona in 1961 and assumed the sales manager role as Bill simi retired in 1964.
He oversaw the stabilizing of the business and changing the company emphasis from market refrigeration to light commercial/residential/design build.
Shirley came into the business in 1985 and oversaw the internal operations. During their leadership, the industry experienced many business cycles and they positioned the company to be in the best position to exploit it.
While Dick relinquished the Presidency, he is still a valuable member as he provides sale and design experience to the company.
As the grandson, I express my admiration and respect for a man who was willing to take a risk with no outside help. I trust he is happy his son and grandson have kept the “shop” operating and evolving to what it is today.
