Local wineries and breweries are putting Penticton on the map, and Kimco Controls local office is happy to meet the HVAC, automation and electrical services needs of the town.

 

Since opening its doors a year and a half ago, Penticton’s Kimco office has been growing. The local shop serving Penticton, Okanagan Falls, Oliver, Princeton, Osoyoos and everywhere in between has grown to four new technicians, an office administrator, and has seen a boom of servicing the exciting beer and winery scene in the region. 

Services For A Perfect Sip

If you’re a wine lover or even if not — it's hard to ignore the amount of wineries and breweries that have popped up in Penticton and the surrounding region. It’s a really beautiful part of the culture, and Kimco is proud to be able to support these local businesses HVAC, automation and electrical services. 

“There is an abundance of wineries,” explains Mark Janssen, Director of HVAC and Sales.

“Say they start from a little mom and pop shop, they seem to be growing and they open up a wine tasting room which will need air conditioning. As they grow bigger and start to produce more and do more bottling there will be a Co2 calibration system in place. These are the tools that they can use to make a better product.”

The right HVAC, electrical and automation services let winemakers truly focus on their craft to keep creating the perfect glass of wine, beer or cider. Because the same services can help with each of those niche businesses. Learn more about winery automation.

Preventative Maintenance Solutions

Since opening, the shop has seen an increase in people looking for more information from Kimco, including following up on old installations, and replacing or upgrading old equipment, something that makes Mark proud of the progress they’ve seen in the region.

“It’s continuous. Awareness is now out there, and people see the potential and value of it,” he explains. “More people are spending money on their investments.” 

By investing in the health of your equipment now, you really save on costs in upgrades, unpleasant surprises and energy use in the future — something at the core of Kimco’s business model. That’s why they offer preventative maintenance check ups four times a year, and 24/7 emergency services

But when you use preventative maintenance: “You have a plan,” says Mark. “It’s a plan instead of an emergency repair.” 

 

Looking Ahead

“We’re really excited to see this type of growth and to work on the continued growth,” says Mark. He adds that, with the current economy we’re seeing more people working from home, starting their own breweries or wineries, and he hopes the trend continues. 

“There are many, many opportunities for the Penticton area, so I'm quite excited about it, for sure.”
