Tell me about how your business got started.
For over 30 years Reitmeier has provided superior commercial HVAC repair, installation and maintenance services to customers in the Portland Metro and SW Washington areas. The Reitmeier team prides itself not on being the biggest HVAC Company, but the best – with the highest quality of products and customer care in mind. Their goal is to save you money AND maximize the life of your equipment.
For the last 7 years, Reitmeier has been working diligently to improve their sustainability, community and employee practices. This has resulted in earning their B-Corp designation, the first and only HVAC Company to receive this honor in the US.
What problem does your product or service solve?
At Reitmeier they take a holistic, diligent approach to HVAC service and maintenance. They are best known for bringing balance to your environment! They won’t just sell you on their systems, they will help you learn about economical HVAC installation, servicing, preventative maintenance and energy management solutions. Reitmeier clients can rely on receiving in depth evaluations of their HVAC systems, with options based on their goals and budgetary restraints, to then understand and manage their needs.
What is your business philosophy?
Reitmeier has been helping property owners manage their HVAC infrastructure and operations since 1984. Their core values and belief in diligent, sustainable service are the foundation for their long-standing relationships with their clients, and they hold themselves to those standards each and every day. They believe in the power of long-lasting harmonious relationships, valuing great communication and interactions with managers, customers, vendors, business partners, team members and co-workers. They strive for an environment that is friendly, warm, and exciting, and they continuously go above and beyond for others both inside and outside the company.
Reitmeier was certified in 2017 as a B Corporation.
B Corporations must pass rigorous standards of social and environmental performance, accountability, and transparency. This was a natural step for us to formalize our mission and core values, as well as our ongoing dedication to making Reitmeier a great place to work and a great company to hire.
The B Corp assessment extends our commitment even further, giving us a framework to measure our company’s success against rigorous values and responsible practices. And because we have to reapply for certification every two years, it pushes us to continuously improve the way in which we serve our employees, customers, suppliers, community, and environment.
How does your business give back to the community?
The team at Reitmeier volunteers for and supports The Good Neighbor Center which adopts families in Washington County and helps them get back on their feet with permanent housing. They also volunteer for numerous other charitable organizations throughout the area and are always on the lookout for new opportunities to support the community.
If you could say one thing to the people of Tualatin, what would it be?
