Our History header.png

           Protec, Inc. was founded in 1973 with the mission to provide high-quality HVAC products and engineering services to the markets of Latin America and the Caribbean. In the early 1980s, Protec expanded its operations to include Southeast Florida and currently serves all three regions with a growing array of top-quality product lines and customer service.

           Since its inception, Protec has excelled in the industry by offering superior products and the unparalleled expertise of its seasoned mechanical engineering staff. Our team of engineers works hand in hand with our clients from a project’s conception to its completion. At the core of Protec’s mission is the goal to deliver the best available value proposition to its clients by focusing on the optimal combination of technical solution, energy conservation, and value for money. By leveraging a deep pool of in-house engineering talent and a broad spectrum of product lines, Protec can deliver custom, high-value, equipment packages to fit each project’s unique needs.

           Protec’s centrally-located Miami office and warehouse place it in an advantageous position to serve both its domestic and international clients. Protec’s warehousing capabilities and its inventory of replacement parts and equipment allow it to efficiently deliver equipment to its clients either through freight or direct customer pick-up. Our engineers are always available to assist in the selection of the most efficient replacement equipment when needed.

           For nearly the last 50 years, Protec has served thousands of customers with competence, reliability, and dedication. Our goal is to deliver the best value for our customers, and our reliable performance throughout the years has earned us their continued trust and satisfaction.
