Peoria, AZ, United States, 2011/10/11 - Rapid Recovery, the only nationwide refrigerant abatement company is pleased to announce the opening of its Jacksonville, FL Territory.
Local Jacksonville resident Chan Ritchie and long time business partner Hank Taylor will own and operate the business in the Jacksonville, FL Territory.
This opening marks another strategic expansion for Rapid Recovery as it’s their first location in the Florida market and will serve all major cities in that state as well as the gulf coast area.
This marks the 28th location for the nation’s largest provider of refrigerant recovery services. With locations from coast to coast and work experience in over 42 states, Rapid Recovery continues to expand to meet the need for EPA compliant refrigerant recovery. Their use of AHRI certified gas powered recovery equipment gives them a distinct speed advantage over a contractor’s electric “buzz box” and they are rapidly expanding to meet this demand.
Founded in 2002, the industry leader has revolutionized the way refrigerant gets recovered in the U.S. "Industry leading EPA documentation and superior service are just two of the things that set Rapid Recovery apart", said Adam Dykstra, President of Rapid Recovery. Another unique aspect is the company’s franchise model, which Dykstra explains is "great service backed by local ownership that provides a huge plus for local contractors". The opening of Florida marks another extension of Rapid Recovery’s nationwide service platform.
Dykstra said “We are a genuine service company to HVAC, Mechanical and Demolition contractors as well as in house facilities departments and government agencies. As the burdensome cost of technicians’ time, equipment, maintenance; and expensive, yet inadequate off-the-shelf recovery equipment are realized, Rapid Recovery is in prime position for continued growth. Contractors are realizing that outsourcing the refrigerant recovery process to an expert can add profitability to their jobs, free up important technician time and meet all of their documentation needs as well.”
Rapid Recovery’s Jacksonville, Florida operation will be operated by Hank Taylor and Chan Ritchie. Both long time successful business owners, they place “Total Customer Satisfaction” as the cornerstone of their success. “I like to say that we are really in the man-hours-savings business. We can recover as much as 500 pounds of refrigerant in an hour, 10 times faster than your average recovery machine. This saves contractors a ton of costly time that can be repurposed to more productive activities than waiting around on recoveries... Then, add on top that we assume all of their EPA liability for every pound of refrigerant we recover and you see why we are expanding so rapidly”. Richie added that “We deliver superior service and tremendous value to our customers”.
When asked if he feels Rapid Recovery has a competitive advantage, Ritchie said,“Definitely, get us on a job-site and our equipment, tools and personnel really impress even the most experienced HVAC or Refrigeration professional.” He added that “Once a contactor uses us on a recovery and realizes our speed, they understand the impact that outsourcing refrigerant recovery can have. Their highly trained technicians can then focus on revenue generation rather than recovery.”
