WARREN, MI — Williams Refrigeration, a family-owned business since 1937 headquartered here, was recently awarded the grand prize in Honeywell’s POWERContractor Sweepstakes. The $30,000 cash prize was presented to owner Jim Williams and celebrated in a brief ceremony in the company’s parking lot.

The sweepstakes was part of the 2001 launch of the POWERContractor program that equips contractors with “power tools” to enhance their business of working with builders and consumers to “minimize everyday home comfort and air quality problems.”

One of Williams Refrigeration’s entries was chosen in a random ballot selection from more than 63,000 entries who participated in the POWERContractor program. Upon receiving the check from Honeywell’s Dan Joyce, Williams said, “We intend to channel these funds into programs to grow our business, creating new customers and new business opportunities.”
