Though AirTech Heating has been operating in Ripon for months, it wasn’t until last week Thursday that the heating and cooling equipment company made its move official.

   AirTech held its grand opening celebration, and it was a party, complete with games, grilled food and give-aways.

   Though largely attended by staff of AirTech, members of the public also stopped in and helped the company celebrate its new location.

   Above, helping AirTech celebrate the ribbon-cutting ceremony are, from left, Ripon Chamber of Commerce Executive Director Jason Mansmith; Jim Price, general manager; Sarah Price, office manager; Patrick Tietyen, residential new construction manager; Dani Miller, who runs the Ripon office and is in charge of social media; owner Dan Price with wife Mary; Steve Lam, service manager; and Ben Wellens, new installation manager.
