AJAX Ventura County Lead Technician
Ajax’s lead Ventura County Technician, Bill Roberts, has dedicated his career to the refrigeration service industry, having spent more than three decades in the service field. Bill takes pride in his work. His refrigeration training was both academic, as he holds an associates degree in electronics engineering, and hands on in the field. Some of the many courses completed include Copeland compressors, Sporlan commercial refrigeration controls, and numerous ice maker and commercial cooler manufacturer classes. In addition, Bill attended the Mueller dairy refrigeration training course in Wisconsin, then spent a few years in the Midwest servicing commercial dairy refrigeration and food processing plants as well as typical commercial service. A part of his background has been teaching the trade to the next generation and he can proudly say, “There are some good technicians that I was able to help get going in the service industry, and I continue that today with Ajax.”
In the years that Bill has been with Ajax, he has become not only a member of the team, but part of a family of service professionals. Though he primarily services the Ventura county area, you might see him at any of our valued customers sites, providing service.
