For 93 years, our family’s number one concern has been for the comfort and care of our community. When Joseph B. Redding founded J.B. Redding & Son in 1920 and devoted himself to serving Princeton University’s heating and cooling needs, he knew that he wanted to build a legacy – a lasting tradition of quality and service upheld by his family for generations to come.
Today, fourth and fifth generations of the Redding family do just that. Over the years we’ve changed a bit. Our customers just call us Redding's now – we've earned their trust and feel like family. And while we got our start in a modest barn on Linden Lane, in 1945 we moved into 234 Nassau Street in the heart of downtown Princeton. Since then, we’ve watched our community grow around us. And we’ve grown with it. We’re continually upgrading our knowledge and expertise to expand our services and remain at the leading edge of the heating, ventilation and air conditioning industry. What has not changed – and never will – is our commitment to our community.
Our current president, David J. Redding, his wife, Judy, and daughter, Laura, continue to assure the comfort and well being of students, faculty and employees of Princeton Theological Seminary, Princeton University, Princeton Plasma Physics and surrounding institutions and businesses through Redding’s Mechanical, our commercial division.
David and Judy's son, Michael, runs Redding’s Plumbing, Heating & Air Conditioning, our residential and light commercial division. Through a professional service fleet and knowledgeable sales and office staff, they deliver the same reliability, courtesy and longstanding service to Princeton and surrounding communities.
