Goettl Air Conditioning’s Ken Goodrich Gives to the Community and Grows the Company

Kenneth Goodrich grew up holding the flashlight for his father, Duncan Goodrich, on service calls for Goettl Air Conditioning. Today, he owns the company, is aggressively growing it in the Las Vegas area, and is generously giving to the community.

Goettl Air Conditioning was founded in 1939, and operates in the Phoenix, Tucson, Las Vegas, and California areas. Ken Goodrich purchased the company in 2013 and now has purchased Moore Air Conditioning, part of a plan to add 100+ jobs in the Las Vegas area over the next 12 months and grow Goettl Air Conditioning by 50% in 2017. The purchase of Moore Air Conditioning adds 300+ years of experience to Goettl.

Goodrich has created an endowment at the College of Southern Nevada in honor of his father, the J. Duncan Goodrich Air Conditioning Technology Program. This program will train technicians, creating a steady supply of job applicants for Goettl to employ as it grows. To give back to the community, Goodrich sponsors the Kenneth D. Goodrich CSN Post-9/11 Veteran HVAC Employment Program, intended to create job opportunities for veterans.

Goodrich also sponsors a tool scholarship, an important component of becoming an HVAC technician. The Post 9/11 Veterans Tools Award’s first recipient is Nick Hughes, a former member of the U.S. Navy and the newest member of the Goettl Air Conditioning family. Nick will receive $1000 of tools to begin his new career. Goodrich sponsors an additional scholarship, the “Son of a Gun” Scholarship, awarded to a student from a multiple generation family in the air conditioning industry, much like Goodrich’s own family. http://www.prnewswire.com/news-releases/goettl-air-conditioning-owner-ken-goodrich-rewards-veteran-college-of-southern-nevada-student-300267374.html#continue-jump
