Quality AirQuality Air, one of the largest mechanical contracting companies in the state, has approached GRCC with a goal in mind – to help develop the best HVAC students whom they can hire upon graduation.

Tim Albers, President and CEO of Quality Air, invited HVAC Instructors Don Steeby and Ron Stevenson to tour their local facility last Friday to continue developing a plan that will help turn their goal into a reality. Quality Air’s 45,000 Sq. Ft. facilities include a full engineering department, as well as a complete sheet metal and pipe fabrication shop. Tim knows that to meet the growing demand for quality HVAC technicians, installers, and service techs; there needs to be proper training both in the classroom and in the lab.

In addition Bob Middlebrook, Director of Field Operations, plans to serve on the HVAC Advisory Committee beginning this fall.
