Our team of professional engineers and technicians have a combined experience totally more than 75 years. While our competition is expending resources correcting their mistakes on past projects, we can devote our resources to the next project. Since projects are completed the “Rite Way” during the initial installation, significantly less time is spent on callbacks to correct installation mistakes. Our technicians are from the Steamfitters Local #449.
Mr. Noll initially started his career with Marchase Refrigeration as a service technician and an installer of refrigeration equipment. Mr. Noll has also worked with various companies over the years, one of the most rewarding, working with Giant Eagle as their Field Service Engineer for over 5 years. This undertaking has led to numerous opportunities such as working with control venders, mechanical manufactures and has also assisted in the development of electronic controls within the refrigeration system.
