The Evolution of Stinson Air and Solar

A lot has changed since Brad Stinson, Managing Director founded Stinson Air & Solar as a newly qualified tradesman 25 years ago. The company has grown into an award winning business employing over 50 staff and contractors across Perth and the South West.

Brad’s passion for leading a company inspired and driven by it’s core value of playing above the line is key to the businesses ongoing success. Two decades on, Brad’s vision and value of balancing hard work and play is what keeps his thriving team ahead of the industry curve. The Stinson Air family attracts and retains highly skilled, positive individuals with exemplary air conditioning and solar industry expertise. Focused on delivering excellence, as well as nurturing and celebrating the talented team members is what sets Stinson apart.

Originally based in Wembley, moving on to Scarborough and now situated in their second home in Osborne Park, Stinson Air & Solar have witnessed a massive change in the industry. From a time when Solar Panels and Air Conditioning were extremely expensive and out of reach for so many, to an era where almost every second home you see has solar panels installed, for a fraction of the cost and almost every household has air conditioning.

“It’s been a real tough industry, and there are a lot of businesses that have folded along the way because of industry regulations changing and inferior products” says Brad.

Our favourite referrals come from those challenging jobs, where we’ve persisted and problem solved until we handover a perfect system.

Stinson Air South West

Founding Stinson Air & Solar in 1995 and growing with Stinson Air South West in 2013, the team have always done things a bit differently. Stinson Air South West was developed when Stinson joined forces with Down South Refrigeration. General Manager of Down South Refrigeration Gary Hodge, has tailored refrigeration and air conditioning solutions for wineries, cafes, resorts and a host of hospitality and tourism businesses since 1995.

Gary’s local South West knowledge and networks plus Stinson Air’s serious buying power, authorised dealerships and quality systems give Stinson Air South West a serious competitive edge in premium residential and commercial air conditioning, refrigeration and solar services across the entire South West region.
