About Us

When someone has worked in the industry as long as I, you can be assured that I know the ins and outs in the refrigeration and air-conditioning. As I work, talk and breathe it.

I have been in the industry since 1972, first serving as an apprentice with electrical construction company in Durban. I progressed with the company for three and a half years.

While serving my apprenticeship the company was sold to defy in October 1976 and I was transferred to homeair air-conditioning.

I qualified with a trade diploma in commercial refrigeration and air-conditioning as the first Indian. I worked myself to various levels with help of the chief engineer the late Mr Hue Brown.

In 1983 I opened my own company (Paddy's Refrigeration and Air-conditioning) with a wide vision, creating job opportunity for many in the industry and teaching them the trade.

In 2000 I joined the Thekwini College in uplifting education in the industry, giving many learners the opportunity in specialising in the trade. While lecturing at the Thewini college, I started the Saturday classes for the industry. In 2003 I relocated the Saturday classes to UAD TRANE Training Centre and Airtronic Spares Training Centre.

With the support of the Industry and the above companies in October 2007 I opened a state of art training centre with full accreditation by merSETA.
