Testimonials

“Big Rock Brewery recently contracted A.K. Brown Refrigeration & Air conditioning to retrofit and update our building control system at our complex in Calgary.  All work was done in a professional manner, on time, and within budget… The system has worked perfectly and has reduced our energy consumption, providing a considerably more comfortable work environment free of nuisance breakdowns.  Subsequent to this project, we have switched to A.K. Brown as our primary source for Building Control Systems as well as HVAC and Sheet Metal work.”

Brian Rowland, Big Rock Brewery

“A.K. Brown Refrigeration and A/C Ltd. has been providing high quality services to Northern Property REIT and its predecessor companies for over 19 years.  During this time, they have proven themselves to be a very competent and honest firm…. The company came to our rescue during a serious emergency we were experiencing in Fort McMurray over the last Christmas season with a high efficiency boiler installation, which had been stalled by a different contractor.  This involved no small amount of personal sacrifice by A.K. Brown personnel and I can tell you was very much appreciated by the 60 families living in a building essentially without heat.”

“I have known Keith Brown as well as many of his staff over twelve years and to deal with a company with very low staff turnover has been a huge benefit as we have established a relationship based on mutual trust and respect…. Many times I have called desperate for service—at the most inconvenient times and have never been let down.  Response was quick.”
