Goettl Invests in Vets Job Futures

Originally published in PRNewswire, Goodrich has made the news for their new opportunities to help vets get the education and job training to help the transition home easier. Goettl Air Conditioning in Nevada is making sure to train the top talent and help veterans out at the same time. Many veterans have a difficult time finding employment or knowing what to do when they come home.

Goodrich started this scholarship to help ensure those who are looking for employment can get the training they need and be able to buy the tools for the job. Not only does he help to fund their education, Goodrich provides a fund that allows them to purchase the tools needed for their new jobs. The scholarship is provided to students at the College of Southern Nevada who are enrolled in the two year applied science in air conditioning technology program. The other is the Post 9/11 veterans tool award, which allots money to vets to help them start their careers in HVAC.

Goodrich fully believes those who come out of the armed services make good employees, and he wants to help anyway he can. Dennis Soukup and Goodrich worked together on this scholarship and award out of experience. They both remember starting out in HVAC, having the tools deducted from their checks. They wanted vets to start out on a good note with their new careers.

Goettl Air Conditioning originally started servicing the Las Vegas community in 1968. Due to the recession, the company left the community in 2007. Once it was purchased by Goodrich in 2007, it came back in 2016. Goodrich, originally from the area, was excited to come home. He went out with his father on those late night calls and remember holding the flashlight. His father was his inspiration in starting the vets scholarship and tool award.
