Climax Air Conditioning - proudly Shoalhaven
Superior customer service is at the heart of every project undertaken by Climax Air Conditioning.
The Nowra-based company offers a “whole of life” service, from supply and installation of air conditioning units to programmed maintenance and repairs.
Operations Manager Robbie Flemons said the family-owned business started more than 25 years ago by his father Dave and specialises in commercial and residential sales and service.
“We take on projects of any size, from single split-level air conditioning in the home to outfitting a 21-storey apartment block,” he said.
Climax is one of the region’s leading companies in the supply, installation and maintenance of air conditioning, mechanical services, central heating, climate systems and solar hot water.
Its commercial customers include schools, hospitals, aged care homes and a wastewater treatment plant.
Robbie said the economic growth of the region had helped Climax expand and increase its staff numbers to more than 30.
The company’s dedicated and experienced team includes mechanics, project managers, site managers, plumbers and electricians so it can offer a full suite of services. Climax currently employs six apprentices and actively recruits mature-age apprentices.
Jimmy Hall was one of those mature-age apprentices and has now climbed through the ranks to be the company’s Residential/Small Projects Operations Manager.
The former Telstra sub-contractor said the company had tripled in size since he started six years ago.
“We are continuing to build on our reputation, both with other businesses and with our customers,” he said.
“Customer service is our core value.”
Robbie and Jimmy agree the Shoalhaven is a great region in which to build a business.
“Development in Shoalhaven has really taken off over the past few years, and there are more and more houses being built every day,” Jimmy said.
“We’re seeing more developers and investors moving here. The business community is great, everyone is happy to help each other out.”
Robbie and Jimmy paid tribute to the services offered by the Shoalhaven Professional Business Association. (spba)
Both have undertaken the organisation’s Leadership and Management course and Robbie said the guest speakers and networking opportunities were invaluable.
Many of the company’s employees had moved to the region from Sydney, particularly to take advantage of the fantastic lifestyle on offer.
“It’s a great place for a family,” Jimmy said. “I love the beaches, living so close to the water, being able to take my girls to the beach in the afternoons. And everyone is so friendly and happy to say hi.”
