My journey to become The Heating Ninja started over 15 years ago when I started helping a friend with sheet metal work, unfortunately that adventure was short lived as I was injured on the job and was at a crossroads. Do I find another industry to work in or go to school for the trade I enjoyed? I didn’t think my journey in sheet metal was over, so I spent 4 years in school and graduated, receiving my red seal certificate in sheet metal.
I then decided to seek out knowledge in the residential construction industry to open opportunities and gain experience. My first job in residential was installing furnaces and air conditioners, it was a unique experience and I had a steep learning curve to keep prepared for the HVAC industry.
I had to learn building code and rules, city codes, and thousands of different types of units, it was daunting, but I stuck through, and even to this day I keep up with the new things of HVAC products.
When I overcame the initial learning curve, I wanted to know more, so I moved into working in new home construction. An exciting world of home ventilation was opening before my eyes, but just as I was getting the hang of this new role the industry slowed down and found myself sub-contracting with 3 different mechanical companies.
While working contract work for new home ventilation and furnace installs, I received a few tips over the holidays and thought it was a suitable time to purchase a trade name that was floating around in my head. Industry slowed down even more, and I was getting less and less work, but fortunately, I had some customers asking for HVAC help, so I used my last tip money to purchase a humidifier and installed it for them. I made $100 for that job and thought, why don’t I try to do that again!
After installing 20 humidifiers I decided to use that money to purchase a corporation name and GST number, and in 2011 MD’s Industries was born!
For a few years I was working in heating and ventilation as a contractor for a few companies, but soon enough I was getting enough calls that I thought I should strike out on my own. Word of mouth travels fast and MD’s Industries was getting a reputation for great service and good rates. Just for fun, I tried out the company name The Heating Ninja, but soon enough everyone I met loved the name…
Here we are now, 10 years in….
