About Us

Founded in 1969, Refrigeration Engineering & Contraction Co., Inc. (RECCO), has built a solid foundation of skilled staff and loyal customers. Peter Comeau, Chief Executive Officer, joined the team in 1977. Eighteen years later, Peter and Lori Comeau purchased RECCO from its founders, Fred Antoon and William Hoover. Together they have worked hard to increase the professional skills of the entire staff and have searched for ways to improve the commercial refrigeration, and industrial refrigeration industry.


Keeping with its tradition of continuity and succession from within RECCO, in 2013 Gino Whooley, a long-term member of the Refrigeration Engineering team, joined Peter Comeau as Co-Owner.  In his role as President of RECCO, Gino’s many years of refrigeration experience and his professional manner are widely recognized and respected throughout the commercial industrial refrigeration and industrial industry.


The individuals at Refrigeration Engineering believe in promoting excellence both within our company and throughout the industrial refrigeration industry. To further these objectives, Peter Comeau has served as a Director on the National Board of Directors of the Mechanical Contractors Association of America (MCAA) and the MCAA Advanced Leadership Institute Education Committee. Peter has devoted timeless hours as a Board Member and recent President of the New England Mechanical Contractors (NEMCA) and the New England Mechanical Contractors Service Association. Mr. Comeau serves as a member of the Joint Apprenticeship Committee for UA Local 537 as well as Local 537’s Educational Trust Fund Committee. Mr. Comeau has also served on the Local 537 Industry Improvement Fund Committee. Peter was instrumental in establishing a student contractor chapter for the MCAA at Wentworth Institute of Technology in Boston, MA along with a scholarship program for the MCAA student contractor chapters at both Northeastern University and Wentworth Institute.
