1978

Bill served his 4 year apprenticeship 1978 – 1981 with Mark Horn Air Conditioning Services, where extensive knowledge was gained in maintenance of air conditioning split systems, ducted systems and commercial central plants inclusive of chillers. At the end of Bill’s apprenticeship he gained employment with York Borge Warner, where extensive knowledge was gained in the commercial air conditioning and refrigeration maintenance.

1984

1984 saw the establishment of Bill’s Refrigeration and Air Conditioning Services, specialising in air conditioning and refrigeration maintenance, originally a sole trader, the business quickly grew to employment of 2 office staff, 6 tradespersons, and 2 apprentices. Maintenance contracts were held with State Works Department, Suncorp Building Society, Royal Brisbane Hospital, Ten Pin Bowling Centres and Printers.

The trading name was changed to Bill’s Efficiency Air, with the slogan: The difference is ……. knowledge and service. This slogan has been carried forward to Gecko Air Conditioning.
