Welcoming Interns to the BEST SUMMER EVER!!!

It’s summertime, and our internship program begins this week with 6 interns in Dallas, 5 in Houston and 1 in San Antonio.  For the third year in a row, we have found some of the most talented college junior and senior engineering students around.

Our internship program includes an 8-hour orientation and 24-hour technical training program in with TAS University.  Interns will experience site visits with technicians and salespeople as well as leadership dinners.  They are assigned individual projects to help them grow in their knowledge and contribute to our organization’s success long after the summer is gone.

In addition to learning about our industry, there are plans to trap them in a room with a zombie, try vintage bowling and maybe the occasional prank when one of them is out on vacation.

Take a look at our internship group for summer 2016.  We expect great things from them this action-packed summer.

TAS Annual Sales Retreat

Published by in Uncategorized on March 2nd, 2016 | Comments Off

Texas AirSystems’ annual sales retreat is an exciting opportunity for our organization to recognize the top sales performances in the previous year.  At the Hyatt Hill Country in February, we celebrated the tremendous success of our 2015 results.  Awards included our Top 10 sales teams, Momentum Awards and M7 Awards – all of which recognize individuals who showed growth in their results from 2014 to 2015.  One of our most notable awards was our newest Leadership Award recipient Chase Williams.

Chase is a team player, who wants Texas AirSystems to win.  Every.  Single.  Time.  He is available to mentor, advise and partner with peers in order to help them better understand their customers and find the best solutions to meet those needs.  In the spirit of Texas AirSystems’ core values, Chase is a steward of Work Hard, Have Fun and Win…Together!  He celebrates his peer’s successes as much as his own.

Honest and open, Chase shares industry and equipment knowledge with the Houston and other TAS offices in order to help others.  He lends a hand, even when he has no dog in the fight.

Incredibly gifted as a lifelong learner as well, Chase earned his PE license in 2015 and participated in TAS University Leadership Development program.  A willing listener, advocate for peers and lifelong learner, it was an awesome privilege to celebrate Chase as he joined the ranks of Tony Finch, PE; Benjamin Bain, PE; Ryan Williams; Gene Hensarling and Jim Hart, PE as our sixth TAS Leadership Award recipient.

The above characteristics that describe Chase are the criteria for which the leadership team chooses a Leadership Award winner each year.  Congratulations to Chase Williams, 2016 Leadership Award Recipient!



Keep it Cool…ing Tower

Published by in Company News on February 29th, 2016 | Comments Off

Texas AirSystems, LLC is thrilled to announce the addition of Composite Cooling Solutions, L.P to our portfolio of products in all markets – Austin, Dallas, Fort Worth, Houston and San Antonio.   Effective tomorrow March 1, the new partnership allows us to continue growing our vision of creating the best customer experiences through providing the best building environments.  Our customers’ needs, above all else, taught us that to truly provide them the best solution for each unique building, our portfolio of products must reflect the needs of different HVAC systems, in different markets and environments.  Composite Cooling Solutions (CCS) is the next step in making that vision reality. 

CCS is a custom cooling tower solutions provider specializing in the design and build of field-erected fiberglass and concrete cooling towers.  With an innovative spirit much like ours at Texas AirSystems, CCS continuously invests in research to develop new and better methods for cooling tower design and construction.  The founding leaders of CCS developed the first fiberglass cooling tower in 1981, started CCS in 2004 and constructed North America’s largest fiberglass reinforced plastic tower in 2010.   The average CCS employee has 20 years of cooling tower industry experience, and its executives hold multiple roles in the Cooling Technology Institute.  With a history of innovation, we welcome the high quality and reputation of CCS to Texas AirSystems. 

The open-frame design of CCS’s exclusive tower structure enables faster and safer project execution which ultimately means lower operating and maintenance costs for our customers.  CCS towers are built to the exact footprint available, allowing them to utilize optimal motor size and the lowest horsepower available to maximize efficiency. In addition to savings in the life of the cooling tower, customers can expect 25% faster installation, due to larger columns and spacing resulting in fewer connections and hardware pieces. 

With an ever-growing product portfolio of 30+ manufacturing partners, we understand the responsibility of balancing our manufacturer and customer needs.  Our goal has and will continue to be selecting new product lines that fill a niche in our portfolio that will allow us to better serve our customers and their building needs.  We are thrilled to begin the partnership with Composite Cooling Solutions today and to watch it grow for many years to come. 

Designed for Success

Texas AirSystems set a record as the first manufacturer’s representative to sell $2 million for Flow Design Inc.  The group effort was led by Darren Rode and was a true testament to our core value Work Hard, Have Fun and Win…Together!  Our Flow Design sales also received a big boom from Madison Bryer for her work in Austin and San Antonio processing over $600,000 of the $2 million.



Darren, responsible for the DFW and Houston markets, credits his success to the Dallas, Fort Worth and Houston salespeople at TAS who helped achieve this success.  Darren said, “they are just as much to credit as I am.”


Some of our Flow Design projects in 2015 include Dallas Independent School District, Chevron Midland and Denton High School.  The secret to Darren’s success?  Darren takes advice from senior salesperson Curt Rogers who says that at the end of the day, you just take care of your customer – no matter the need, no matter the workload.


In Darren’s words, “I wish I could say that when I wake up in the morning, I can’t contain my own excellence, but the reality is I’m very fortunate that I work with the best salespeople.”

Keeping it cool with the Aggies

Published by in Uncategorized on February 12th, 2016 | Comments Off

Last week, we enjoyed sharing Texas AirSystems’ story with the Aggies of Texas A&M University at the Student Engineering Council‘s career fair.  We are impressed every year with how organized the team is that keeps this career fair running so smoothly.  It is 100% student-run since 1991.

TAMU spring 2016

George Williamson, TAS employee and class of ’15, is shown greeting engineering students and telling them about our entrepreneurial culture. We strive to hire self-starters and independent thinkers to join our team in 2016.  In addition, you may notice our plastic cups and ping pong balls on the bottom left of the picture?  In addition to working hard, we enjoy having fun as a team!  Sometimes, that includes friendly competition at the career fairs to see who is the best fit for our unique culture.

We look forward to visiting Aggieland again in the spring for follow-up interviews.  We hired 5 Aggies last year for summer internships…will the Aggies be the #1 represented school on TAS campus again this summer?

Next stop this recruiting season is University of Texas at Austin!

Santa Cops – Toy Drive

Published by in Company News on December 23rd, 2013 | Comments Off

The Irving office hosted a toy drive in honor of the Grapevine Police Santa Cops program. They collected 4 large boxes of toys as well as $1400!

Santa Cops deliver toys to economically disadvantaged children in their community. This program fulfills Christmas wishes for over 800 kids per year! This program is also funded entirely by local donations. It is organized and run by Grapevine Police Officers, their families and community volunteers. The program uses donated space in grapevine to collect and sort the toys. A few times a week volunteers get to pick out toys for the kids in need and wrap them. Once the toys are wrapped and tagged the police department delivers them to the families.

A few of our Irving associates volunteered time and helped wrap presents. They were able to wrap toys for over 10 families!


Giving Back at Christmas

Published by in Uncategorized on December 19th, 2013 | Comments Off

This Christmas the Texas AirSystems Irving office volunteered to help a family from the Helping Hands organization in Dallas. We received a family with 4 children under the age of 7 and a single Mom. Their list was very basic, some clothes, toys, essentials and household items. Thanks to the donations from our associates we were able to fulfill the list as well as provide additional items for the family to enjoy.

Helping Hands is a fundraising auxiliary of The Family Place, the largest family violence service provider in the Dallas area. Their mission is to eliminate family violence through intervention and proactive prevention, extensive community education and advocacy, and assistance for victims and their families.

The Family Place is a refuge for hundreds of abused women and children. Statistics show that in Dallas there are estimated to be 75,000 women and 150,000 witnessing children suffering from family violence and the numbers are growing making the need for volunteers great.

Above and Beyond!

In August we were given an opportunity to give back to a veteran in need. We found out that not only did we help, one of our associates invited the veteran to his house for Thanksgiving. This is how everything transpired.

We saw a story on CBS 11 News and reached out to the Case Worker in charge to see what we could do to help. Horace Elliott, a 67 yr. old veteran in Fort Worth was in need of A/C. “I went to Germany in ’64 and ’65 and then they pulled me out of Germany to go to Vietnam,” Elliott recalled. He has lived in his house since the day he got back from war (47 years ago), his house was in awful shape to the point that the city wanted to tear it down. His house was hit by lightning and had yet to be repaired. He lost all electricity. He hired people who told him they were electricians he paid them more than a thousand dollars. They didn’t get the city permits that they needed and didn’t fix his electricity properly. The electricity would come on and off. The “electricians” disappeared. Mr. Elliott was often left without air conditioning and heat.

The day we found out about Mr. Elliott and his need 2 of our Dallas associates (Brennan DeBlasi and Jerry Scott) headed to Ft. Worth to deliver a spot cooler. Unfortunately there was not enough power to keep it running. Shortly after, volunteers repaired his electricity and Texas AirSystems was able to provide 2 new window units for Mr. Elliott. These units were installed with cages to keep them from getting tampered with. Thanks to our friends at TECO for providing the cages. Mr. Elliott was taken care of and comfortable before the really cold weather hit.

See the full story here.


Our story goes beyond that. Brennan from our Dallas office keeps in touch with Mr. Elliott and found out that he had nowhere to go for thanksgiving. Brennan picked Mr. Elliott up from his home so that he could be with his family for thanksgiving. Mr. Elliott got a home cooked thanksgiving meal and got to cheer on the Cowboys with Brennan’s family. Associates like this make our company a great place to work. Thank you to Jerry, Brennan and all of the other associates who helped make this possible by giving their time and donations.
