Company founder and Director, Bill Reid, formed “Reids Chinchilla Refrigeration & Airconditioning” in 1994. At 17, Bill started as a trade assistant with Weirs Refrigeration here in Chinchilla. Bill then made the move to Toowoomba to start his apprenticeship, where he worked for 13 years, on large commercial work sites. He then moved to Brisbane for 5 years, working for a large laundry services company, again working on large commercial job sites.
With a young family, Bill decided to make the move home in 1994 and start his own business. Over the years, he has passed on his extensive experience to apprentices and trade technicians who have worked with him, which has given the company the great reputation it has today.
There has been many changes within the industry over the years, all of which Bill has seen, that have had positive affects. The introduction of “inverter systems” made running costs of air conditioners so much more superior. The change in “refrigerants” (gas), that have minimal affects on our environment. “Rack systems” in supermarkets, making refrigeration easier and products more accessible. And of course, online services has changed how we do business across a wider customer base.
Bills goal has always been, to be committed to looking after the local community. Whether it be with domestic air conditioners, making the elderly and families with young babies a priority, or, supporting local clubs, businesses and local government services, Bill is proud of the companies achievements.
Bill…”I thank Chinchilla and surrounds for supporting my team and I for so long, and will continue to provide the great service the community has become accustom to, now, and into the future.”
