In 1949, Edward C. Newsome left his job with Mingledorff’s to start his own company, Albany Air Conditioning and Heating Company, Inc., on Roosevelt Avenue, with his wife Wildred. As the company’s name became trusted, business rapidly grew, and Albany Air Conditioning and Heating Company earned a stellar reputation that has made it a community mainstay.
The need for more space and additional employees was met with a new building on Broad Avenue, before the company moved to its current location on West Gordon Ave. in 1973. It is here where Mr. Newsome’s son, Edward C. Newsome Jr., came home from college to work for the family business. In 1990, he purchased the company from his father.
Ed Jr. has continued to grow the company with the help of 50+ employees who are responsible for installing and servicing thousands of systems across Southwest Georgia. Edward “Clint” Newsome III joined the company in 2008 as Vice President, and he handles project management and business operations.
This family company prides itself on putting customers first and being community minded. Ed and Clint are committed to continually educating themselves and their employees as technology in their industry changes.
As the oldest mechanical contractor in Albany, one of the oldest Carrier dealers in the state and a respected three-generation family business, Albany Air Conditioning and Heating Company boast both a rich history and a bright future.
