Our Story

Kaiser Air Conditioning’s Story

Kaiser Air Conditioning and Heating is a family-owned HVAC business established in 1981 by Neil Kaiser. Neil worked through the ranks of his local sheet metal union where he learned and further developed his incredible craftsmanship skills in the field of HVAC and sheet metal.

Kaiser AC began with a determined vision, a single truck, a few machines and a small sheet metal facility in the heart of Ventura County. Over the following 22 years, Neil continued to grow Kaiser AC through investing in employee training and personnel expansion, increased sheet metal fabrication capabilities and a larger facility.

At age 58, Neil began planning for retirement and worked for several years grooming his nephew, Cory Dishman, for the task of continuing the legacy and vision of Kaiser AC. After working for Kaiser AC for 18 years, Cory purchased the company on November 1, 2002.

Today, the company has grown to a team of over 40 highly trained employees, 20 trucks and a 5,000 square foot sheet metal fabrication facility in Oxnard, CA. Kaiser AC continues forward with our team-spirit, commitment to quality, value, and pride in workmanship.
