Oren Atchley Co., Inc. is a third generation family-owned business that has been in operation since 1958. We’re proud of our excellent reputation for fair, reliable service and strive to uphold that reputation on each and every job we perform.
After serving his country in World War II, Oren Atchley began looking for a career. At the time, central air conditioning was just starting to catch on in homes across the River Valley. Believing the industry to be in its infancy, Oren decided to become a heating and air conditioning technician, and quickly went to work for the Harry G. Barr Company. As the calendar rolled over to 1958, Mr. Barr was deciding to get out of the heating and cooling business. On Valentine’s Day of that same year, Mr. Barr closed his heating and cooling operations and gave his written recommendation that all his customers give their business to Oren.
Oren grew the business over the years, eventually bringing all three of his children (Susan, Tom, and Alan) into the business to help in various capacities. In 1981, Tom took over as President. The business grew by leaps and bounds under Tom’s leadership, as Oren Atchley Company became the first heating and cooling company in town to offer its customers scheduled maintenance agreements. Tom kept the company on the cutting edge of the industry, ensuring that the employees got the latest training and tools necessary to stay ahead of the curve.
Alan Atchley continues as an integral part of the family business, serving as Vice-president and Installation Manager. Though these are his official titles, Alan wears many more hats taking care of a variety of issues as they arise. As Installation Manager, Alan oversees a group of Install Technicians who are second to none in efficiency and effectiveness.
In 2001, Michael Atchley moved back home to the River Valley to work in the family business. Michael, a graduate of Southside High School and the University of Tulsa, spent 4 years after college in Tulsa and Northwest Arkansas working in public accounting. In 2004, Tom Atchley retired from the business, and Michael assumed the role of President.
Over the years and from one generation to the next, a common lesson that has been learned is that to provide outstanding service, you must have outstanding people on your team. Today, Oren Atchley Company is made up of 16 valuable team members, each playing an important role in the ultimate success of the company.
