Rapid Recovery, a nationwide refrigerant abatement company based in Peoria, Ariz., has announced the opening of its Jacksonville, Fla. territory. Chan Ritchie and Hank Taylor will own and operate the business. The Jacksonville location is the first for Rapid Recovery in Florida and will serve all cities in Florida and the Gulf Coast area.

The Jacksonville location is Rapid Recovery’s 28th location. Rapid Recovery operates in more than 42 states across the United States and continues to expand to meet the need for EPA (Environmental Protection Agency)-compliant refrigerant recovery.

"Industry leading EPA documentation and superior service are just two of the things that set Rapid Recovery apart,” says Adam Dykstra, president of Rapid Recovery. Another aspect is the company’s franchise model, which Dykstra explains is "great service backed by local ownership that provides a huge plus for local contractors.”

“I like to say that we are really in the man-hours-savings business,” says Richie. “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 to more productive activities than waiting around on recoveries.” Richie adds, Rapid Recovery assumes all EPA liability for every pound of refrigerant it recovers.
