40under40 2003: Andrew Ford

In 1985 Andrew Ford and his business partner, Kyle Doonan, decided to open a small air-conditioning business. The pair used second-hand vans and second-hand tools.

With $500 in the bank they set about making a go of installing air-conditioners.

The business has since expanded and has won several Telstra WA Small Business of the Year awards and was ranked as one of the fastest growing companies in BRW’s 2002 fast 100.

It is the largest dealer in WA for Daikin Air Conditioning.
