Ocean-Aire owner and president Bill Long grew up working in a sheet metal shop in the Chicago suburbs alongside his father when he was 16. After serving in Vietnam he returned to work as a service dispatcher, then production manager. Bill moved to the west coast of Florida in 1968 to run production for an AC company. During his time there he opened 4 more branches.

Bill founded Ocean-Aire in 1979 on the values of honesty, integrity, hard work and treating others as you want to be treated. Ocean-Aire’s motto “treat every customer as a customer for life” has proved to be well received by homeowners in the Sun Coast area and given the company one of the best reputations from Sun City Center to North Port.

“We maintain our high standards by conducting weekly assessments of our performance and striving for clear communications,” Bill said. “One cannot assume that what has been said has been understood. And education is critical for all employees.”

“This Award reflects our entire team’s commitment to performing quality work and providing an exceptional overall experience to our customers,” Bill stated. “Thank you to the Anna Maria Island Chamber of Commerce for the recognition and the entire community for their support.”
