THE BE COOLING STORY
The Early Years
BE Cooling’s beginnings were humble, like many successful business operations in KwaZulu-Natal. At the tender age of 18 years, Bradley Engelbrecht took a job as a Tool Assistant. After honing his technical skills in the industry, Bradley registered Brad’s Refrigeration and Air Conditioning back in 1996. His home’s single garage doubled as both his office and his workshop.
Armed with a single Hyundai Accent and a Venter trailer, and a measly R3000 in his bank account, Brad would diligently service his clients all over Durban with passion for his craft. Brad hired a Tool Assistant, and for three years the company was run by him and his assistant – with Brad doing all of the breakdowns, installations, invoices and quotations himself.
