Business View – October 2020 / Eagle Award Winner

 

For more than two decades, recognizing minority business owners has been a priority for the Mobile Area Chamber. This diversity and inclusion initiative has honored more than 100 companies and has given more than 120 awards. Meet this year’s class of Eagle Award recipients:

 

Easy Heating and Cooling

 

President/Owner: Enoch Smith 

Founded: 2005

Employees: 7

Address: 11 N. Water St.

Website: easyheatingcooling.com

Certified: Disadvantaged Business Enterprise

 

Starting as a “one-man band,” Enoch Smith created a symphony of services that provide comfort to his heating, ventilation and air conditioning (HVAC) customers.

 

Easy Heating and Cooling serves residential and commercial customers throughout the area who depend on the expertise needed to repair, maintain and install equipment 24 hours a day, seven days per week.

 

The company’s recent Disadvantaged Business Enterprise (DBE) certification and Smith’s obtaining his general contractor’s license are two developments that allow the company to bid on larger contracts. In addition, a new software program that synchronizes activities from scheduling field services to invoicing has led to a more agile, productive and efficient operation, says Smith.

 

Sustaining rapid growth depends on finding the right employees who have become known by the company’s customers as “comfort air heroes.”
