ANAHEIM, Calif. - Source Refrigeration & HVAC Inc. announced that it has begun service operations in Florida and is ready to meet the growing customer need for expert refrigeration and HVAC services in the greater Orlando, Tampa/St. Petersburg, Sarasota, and Fort Myers markets. Source said it has relocated a number of experienced technical personnel and a seasoned leader to manage the new Florida operation and ensure the team would be immediately ready to provide its expertise to its customers. The company said it also plans to expand operations by hiring local talent from the community and to reach further south and east in the state.
