“It’s not about HVAC,” Leech said. “It’s all about our core purpose: improving lives. That is why we exist — to improve the lives of our team members, clients, and community. We are a double-digit-profitable contractor that has grown about 17 percent annually. We have a strong culture and live our core values on a daily basis. We are not perfect by any means, but we have our values, purpose, and strategy to make a big impact on a lot of people. We are the largest 100 percent residential contractor in our area, pay our people 30 percent more than the rest of the market, train people from the ground up, and have the stats to prove that we do it well. We are not all about making money for the shareholders. We have a compelling vision and the top talent to get us there. That is why we believe we are the Best Contractor to Work For.”
