[Zionsville, IN - April 29, 2014] - VASEY Commercial Heating and Air Conditioning is pleased to announce it is ranked number one in the small business division (less than 149 employees) of Star Media’s (The Indianapolis Star) 2014 Top Work Places. Having ranked 5th in 2013, VASEY jumped to the top in 2014.

VASEY has 65 employees, about half of them technicians. Employees’ average tenure with the company is at least 14 years. “We don’t advertise a lot. Our employees are our best ads,” said Tom Slagle, Vice President and General Manager.

VASEY Commercial Heating & Air Conditioning - Roger Mooney, Sales Manager "You are not just a number here at VASEY," said Jeff Weidenbener, an industrial and commercial heating and cooling systems technician who’s been with the company for six years. "You have the autonomy and the training to do your job as a professional. While others might micromanage, at VASEY, you are able to do what is expected to take care of the customers."

Ron Anderson, an industrial technician for five years at VASEY, says "There are always opportunities to further your knowledge. There is an easygoing atmosphere because they trust you to manage your accounts, do the job and to fulfill the relationship. This is a good company, family-oriented, and that helps everyone keep motivated. Bill Vasey has done a very good job of building a company. He's busy, but he still calls and thanks you for your good work."

Weidenbener, an airline mechanic before joining VASEY, added that the ESOP is "a testament to Bill Vasey. Rather than selling the company to someone else, he has retained the culture and kept the workforce in place. It’s how this company cares for its employees."

Employees give a lot of the credit to senior managers who are continuing the company culture established by owner Bill Vasey, who is still active but has been turning the reins of the company over to its employees.
