Snapfreeze Refrigeration & Air Conditioning Pty Ltd started in the sunroom of our home in Wallsend 20 years ago. Michael Snape (owner) had done his trade in refrigeration & air conditioning at BHP and went on to become a sales rep for a multi- national gas company.
Travelling around the country he showed the refrigeration & air conditioning trade how to retrofit equipment and use new gases.
A young family made it harder to leave every month so eventually he left his job and established Snapfreeze. Working 7 days a week and on call 24/7 he did everything from car and truck air conditioning to home and business air conditioning and the humble domestic fridge.
Snapfreeze took on our first apprentice Paul Picton 2 years after being in business and he’s still with us today!
Paul has been an integral part of our company and a huge part of our lives. Thousands of our customers have met him and appreciate his easy going but professional attitude.
Lucky for us this is also the same as the rest of our staff. We are a family business and recognise that our staff are our greatest asset.
