Earlier this year, Phoenix-based HVAC company Goettl Air Conditioning acquired local company Moore Air Conditioning and will be adding their staff to their team of experts. This acquisition will place Goettl as one of the primary service providers for residential air conditioning in the Las Vegas Valley area. With their growing business, Goettl Air Conditioning will need more employees. They plan on sourcing new technicians from the air conditioning program at the local College of Southern Nevada where Ken Goodrich, the Chief Executive Officer of Goettl helped create an endowment. The endowment, called the J. Duncan Goodrich Air Conditioning Technology Program after his father, is just one of the programs that Goodrich supports. The Kenneth D. Goodrich CSN Post-9/11 Veteran HVAC Employment Program, which Goodrich also sponsors, helps to create jobs for veterans.
According to Goettl’s website, the company was established in 1939 by Gust and Adam Goettl. Goettl Air Conditioning established themselves as a Las Vegas company in 1968 until the recession hit in 2007. The company relocated and reestablished in the Arizona market and thrived. In 2013, now-owner and CEO Ken Goodrich purchased the Arizona-based Goettl Air Conditioning. He decided in 2016 that it was time to bring Goettl back to his hometown of Las Vegas.
Ken Goodrich has been working on air conditioning systems since he was a young child. When he was just 10-year-old he would go out on service calls with his father and hold the flashlight while his dad would repair units. He learned the importance of customer service and imparts that lesson on how he runs Goettl Air Conditioning on a daily basis. Goettl offers a full range of service including maintenance and installation services in the Las Vegas, Phoenix, Tucson, and Southern California areas.
