John quickly switched from the small-town heating and air company to working in the Twin Cities, as a Jobber installing equipment, running gas pipe and welding steam pipe. John was intrigued by the service fitters starting up the equipment and running the boiler’s he installed, and soon he became a service fitter.

During this fourteen-year stint, it grew to include; Plumbing, Heating, Refrigeration and Custom ductwork.
