Company: E.C. Waters Air Conditioning and Heating
Year Founded: 1996
“Earning customers for life,” is a great philosophy for any business. This is the operational benchmark for Clark Waters, president of E.C. Waters Air Conditioning and Heating in Orlando. “We operate with integrity, present the customers with options and never pressure them,” said Waters. “We get a lot of satisfaction out of solving a customer’s air conditioning problems.”
Waters is in the business of making people comfortable and happy. His passion for the industry evolved from a high school job he took assembling air conditioners that were shipped around the world from its Orlando manufacturing facility. Then, after 17 years of service with the Orlando Utilities Commission, Waters made the decision to go out on his own.
Developing his own plan to take control of his future and leave a legacy for his family, he founded E.C. Waters, Inc. in 1996. He has instilled his core values in his son, Steve, who is his operations manager and is on track to become president when Clark retires.
