Jayme Rhyno, President & The Rhyno’s Team
Harry and Sharon Rhyno started an appliances and refrigeration business, working out of their Riverport home in 1975. In 1979, they brought on another technician and by 1985 they were concentrating on Heating, Cooling, Ventilation and Refrigeration. To accommodate their expanded business, they relocated Rhyno’s just off Bridgewater’s Exit 12 on North Street.
Their son, Jayme, was 13 when he started working with his father during weekends and summers. After graduating from high school, he joined the technical side of the business and began studying for his refrigeration license. In 2006, Jayme obtained his Inter-Provincial Journeyman Licence with the Red Seal. Jayme’s father, Harry, has now fully retired and Jayme has taken over Rhyno’s as we continue to grow.
At Rhyno’s, we design, deliver, install and maintain a host of comfort-and-healthy-living solutions for applications in: Home, Business, and Industry. Our service department can handle any job – big or small. Even if you purchase elsewhere, you can count on Rhyno’s Service Team to protect your investment. Jayme helped Rhyno’s to expand further and in December 2015, Rhyno’s relocated once again to a larger premises on North Street.
At Rhyno’s we follow a set of core values:
- Quality is a must
- Honour our commitments
- Act with integrity
- Customize our solutions – Every customer is an individual
- Encourage long-term development and growth of both our company and customer
Most importantly, we believe and say with pride “The customer is the most important partner in our business!”
