Ken Goodrich of Goettl Air Conditioning honors veteran

Veterans are the heart of America’s dream. They are the embodiment of our commitment to freedom and democracy, and they represent the sacrifices that make the United States the greatest country in the world. Ken Goodrich, owner of Goettl Air Conditioning, did his part to honor one of our hallowed heroes in May by awarding the Post 9/11 Veterans Tools Award to U.S. Navy vet Nick Hughes.

Hughes, a 28-year-old northern California native, served as a cook in the Navy for seven years and will use the $1,000 award to purchase tools to begin his career in HVAC.

Goettl Air Conditioning was founded in 1939 by Adam and Gust Goettl and purchased by Goodrich in 2013. The BBB accredited business opened a branch in Goodrich’s hometown of Las Vegas in April, which is when I first heard about the company. Goodrich is also a sponsor of the J. Duncan Goodrich Air Conditioning Technology Lab and the “Son of a Gun” Scholarship.

Goodrich, the son of an air conditioner repairman, said he sponsors the scholarship because military vets “make good employees” and deserve a strong start in the field. For more information on Goettl Air Conditioning, visit them on LinkedIn and Facebook or visit their website.
