Rapid Recovery, a nationwide refrigerant abatement company based in Peoria, Ariz., has announced its newest location in the Atlanta territory. Todd Beaver will own and operate the business; Richard Drummond will be the lead technician for the Atlanta location. According to Rapid Recovery, the opening continues the company’s expansion strategy into the Southeast’s most significant market and extends its nationwide presence.

The Atlanta location marks the 31st location for the nation’s largest provider of mobile refrigerant recovery services. The company adds that it has work experience in more than 44 states.

Founded in 2002, Rapid Recovery says it has revolutionized the way refrigerant is recovered in the United States. "Industry-leading equipment, combined with superior service and EPA documentation are just three of the things that set us apart," says Adam Dykstra, Rapid Recovery president. The company’s franchise model is described by Dykstra as "great service backed by local ownership that provides a valued partnership for local contractors. We are proud to be extending our nationwide service platform into Atlanta and better serving Georgia’s contractor base.”

“We are a genuine service company to HVAC, mechanical and demolition contractors as well as in house facilities departments,” Dykstra says, “As the burdensome costs of technicians’ time, equipment, maintenance and expensive, yet inadequate off-the-shelf recovery equipment are realized, Rapid Recovery is in prime position for continued growth. Contractors are realizing that outsourcing the refrigerant recovery process to an expert can add profitability to their jobs, free up important technician time and meet all of their EPA documentation needs as well.”

“I like to say that we are really in the man-hours-savings business,” says Beaver. “We can recover as much as 500 pounds of refrigerant in an hour, 10 times faster than your average recovery machine. This saves contractors a ton of costly time that can be repurposed away from waiting around on recoveries. Then, add the fact that we assume all of their EPA liability for every pound of recovered refrigerant and you see why we are winning over contractors.”

“Once a contractor uses us on a recovery and realizes our speed, they understand the impact that outsourcing refrigerant recovery can have. Their highly trained technicians can then focus on other revenue generating activities rather than wasting it on recovery.”
