Pennington Equipment, Inc., offers three generations of service

PRINCETON — The story of Pennington Equipment, Inc., is the story of three generations of Penningtons: President Roby Pennington, the son; Vice President Gene Pennington, the father, and Service Manager Roby Lee Pennington III, Roby's son and Gene's grandson.

Gene Pennington said on Monday, “We started in 1978 as Pennington Equipment Sales. Basically, we do heating and air conditioning for both residential and commercial clients, which involves designing and installation of heating and cooling equipment including furnaces, air conditioners and so forth.”

Pennington Equipment, he said, had a basic background in food service equipment for schools, stores and restaurants.

“We incorporated in 1991, with Roby as president. I do sales, design and engineering of heating and air-conditioning systems for commercial and residential installation. Roby Lee is our service manager,” he said.

Both of the elder Penningtons have more than 40 years experience in HVAC work, Gene said.

“We sell York as our primary brand, but we do sell and service other brands,” he said.

The business is located on North First Street in the former Princeton Rescue Squad building. It has eight employees and is open 8 a.m.-5 p.m., Monday-Friday, with 24-hour service.

The phone number is 304-425-0031.
