Servando Walker founded Gateway Air Conditioning in 1967, as Gateway Refrigeration and Air Conditioning Co. Mr. Walker was a hardworking businessman who served his country proudly before returning to Laredo. He started his career in refrigeration as an employee, much like an apprenticeship. Though he did not have any formal refrigeration training, Mr. Walker learned quickly, put his entrepreneurial mind to work and created his own company. Joined by Dora, his wife, they built true American success story.
Located at 815 Frankfort, Gateway Refrigeration and Air Conditioning, started with one truck, a small home office, and a lot of determination. Just three short years later, the company had eight trucks, ten employees, and had moved to 2820 Santa Ursula. Mr. Walker earned a reputation for excellence in service that is still the focus of the company today. Gateway’s clients stretched from the downtown business district to the growing suburbs of Laredo and to the surrounded communities in Webb County.
Today, Gateway Air Conditioning is in the capable hand of Servando Walker’s son Tony. Under his leadership and vision the company has grown tremendously. Tony Walker has maintained a reputation for service excellence, hired and developed highly trained professional technicians, and invested in state of the art equipment. Now located in a 5,000 sq. ft. facility at 417 Shiloh, Gateway Air Conditioning is Laredo’s premier HVAC company. Bonded and insured, the company is financially strong and capable of working projects of all sizes. Call us and see why Gateway Air Conditioning has been Laredo’s most trusted ac company since 1967.
