In 1956, Fred Hook Limited planted its roots in Midland and has been providing clients in Midland and surrounding areas with quality installation, repair and maintenance solutions for a wide range of heating, air conditioning, refrigeration and generator equipment ever since. That's more than 6 decades. We’ve been upholding a tradition of providing residential, commercial and industrial clients in our community with top-notch workmanship and keen attention to detail.
Fred Hook was a native of Midland, ON. In 1956, Fred purchased the heating and cooling and sheet metals division from James Bath and Sons, where he had worked for eight years. Fred attended high school in Midland and was actively involved in sports like baseball and basketball. After graduating, Fred worked at the Midland shipyard before enlisting in the Royal Canadian Navy during WWII. After returning from service, he returned to the shipyard before working for James Bath and Sons. Upon his retirement, Fred sold his business to four employees, including his son and nephew. Today, Fred Hook Limited is still owned by Fred’s nephew, Bill Hook.
In keeping with Fred’s legacy of community involvement, Fred Hook Limited is proud to support our local community, including:
Waypoint Centre for Mental Health
Royal Canadian Legion Branch 80
Fred Hook Limited encourages the constant efforts of Ontario to train and recruit staff in the skilled trades. In support of this, Fred Hook Limited actively seeks to enroll staff in apprenticeship programs. We work with Georgian College to place CO-OP students within the organization, specifically those enrolled in the Heating, Refrigeration & Air Conditioning Technician Program. We also work closely with the local secondary schools to identify opportunities for students to see firsthand the skilled trades.
