In the mid 80s we had so many customers from Liberal and the panhandles of Oklahoma and Texas that Mike's brother Mark started our Liberal branch. Currently this branch is managed by Mike Tolar who has been with us since 1990.
Stephen Weber officially joined the company in 1990. After having worked every department including janitor, dispatcher, service tech, installer, clerical and sales, Stephen is currently our General Manager. The board pictured in the background is how we used to keep all of our calls organized before we fully computerized.
In 1990 after expanding 3 times on South 13th we bought the old Dillons store at 711 North Main in Garden City. This building still serves us well as our central warehouse, training center, and Service Management hub.
By 1982 we had so many happy customers that it took 5 of us to continue to meet our promise of PROMPT QUALITY SERVICE. We soon moved to 105 South 13th in Garden City
In about 1983 we bought a little stubbed nose Dodge pickup from a sign painter named BOWKER. All the guys thought I was BONKERS for buying such a goofy looking truck and thus affectionately nicknamed this the BONKERS TRUCK. We still put it in parades and Mike and his wife and still use it to pick up tumble weeds every spring.
In 1990 Dave Lennox himself came to help us christen our new Dodge City office which started beside Mike Weber's home at 10562 West Highway 50.
Today we have over 30 "Guys in the Orange Trucks" all over Western Kansas, the Oklahoma and Texas Panhandles, and Southwest Colorado providing "Prompt Quality Service" to thousands of loyal customers.
Additionally, we have about 20 people working in support, inventory, management, sales, clerical and dispatching roles to insure the Professional care you deserve.
About 1988 Brian Weber showed off our Conestoga wagon at the grand opening of our Ulysses branch.
Brian currently works in our Garden City office as Director of marketing and many other tasks.
In 1980 Mike Weber & his family moved to 2006 Apache street in Garden City. Weber Refrigeration was launched out of this small garage. From the very beginning our focus was PROMPT QUALITY SERVICE.
In 2000 we moved the Dodge City office to 11154 Kliesen Street. This building serves as our central bookkeeping, dispatching, and general management office as well as our local sheet metal shop and warehouse. Kris Moore, part of our sales team brought his sprint car down for this picture. You can see him most Saturday nights at the Dodge City Speedway.

Mike Weber's father, Roy was a small town grocery store owner. He encouraged Mike to learn the Refrigeration trade. Roy bought this1966 Buick LeSabre brand new and sold it to Mike in 1971. Mike worked on getting it restored from 1995 to 2015 and of course had to paint it orange!
We put this picture here because it was really Roy that began to teach the importance of excellent customer care.
