TINTON FALLS, N.J. — A.J. Perri has announced that the company is celebrating its 50th year in business.
A.J. Perri was founded in 1971 by Albert Perri, Sr. as a means to support his family. With only three employees serving a small local community, the company quickly gained a reputation for superior service and exceptional customer support. Fifty years later, A.J. Perri employs 317 dedicated associates serving customers in 11 counties.
“It’s rewarding to work with a company that always goes above and beyond to serve the customer, and to make sure they are satisfied,” said Anthony Cosentino, A.J. Perri HVAC supervisor. “In this trade, you never stop learning and improving. When it comes to the latest equipment, the best technology, and the top training programs, A.J. Perri has it down to a science.”
“My career at A.J. Perri started when I was 17, as a part-time job with the company that did some work in my family’s home,” said Aaron Usdan, an installation field supervisor who has been with the company more than 17 years. “Over the years, I’ve seen the company grow exponentially. We had about six install crews when I started, and now it’s closer to 20. And yet, we give each customer the same time, respect, and individual attention as when we were a much smaller company.”
“I know every single technician, plumber, and installer,” said Neal Polycandriotis, who has been with A.J. Perri for 12 years and in the business for more than 33 years. “I know many of their families, their back-stories. Same goes for a lot of our customers who have been with us for years. You don’t really see that in the big corporate world.”
“From humble beginnings, A.J. Perri has truly exemplified the classic business success story,” said Christian Dunning, the company’s general manager. “We’re proud to celebrate this milestone, and we look forward to serving our neighborhoods and communities for many more years to come.”
