The staff at Roy Inch & Sons Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning in London take great pride in being experts in their field and performing high-quality HVAC repairs and installations – when their customers need it most. In other words, they perform well under pressure and thrive on coming through in the clutch – much like athletes do in the world of sports.
It just so happens that the Roy Inch & Sons staff is filled with people passionate about sports. They are coaches, administrators and people still enjoying the games they love. That has been a constant at the company, which has also sponsored numerous local sports teams over the years. And it all starts at the top. General Manager Peter Inch is arguably London’s biggest backer of one of Canada’s most popular sports: curling.
Last fall, Inch was inducted as a builder into the Canadian Curling Hall of Fame for his significant work ‘behind the scenes’ to help grow the game in Canada. Inch chaired the host committee for the 2002 Canadian Senior Men’s and Women’s Championships in St. Thomas, and helped organize the 2006 Scott Tournament of Hearts, 2011 Tim Hortons Brier and the 2018 Continental Cup – all championship events in London.
Said Inch upon learning of his induction: “My goal has always been to make a difference in the curling community. I feel extremely humbled and honoured to receive this recognition.”
Inch’s next event? The 2020 Continental Cup, which will be returning to London next year. Inch is serving as the Vice Chair and, not surprisingly, his staff is rallying around him once again and getting behind curling. Not to mention all the other sports they’ve involved in.
“I believe there is much to learn [as a business] from being active in the sports world,” says Inch, who has spent 38 years at Roy Inch & Sons, the award-winning company that his grandfather founded in 1927. “I truly believe in team dynamics, both in the sports world and, just as important, in operating a successful business.”
