The BAC Group’s Nine Core Businesses
The BAC Group is made up of nine core businesses that work together to create quality indoor environments for commercial and residential properties. With a workforce of over 250 employees, 95% of whom are Bermudian, the Group has gone from strength to strength since its doors first opened in 1964.
The company offers air conditioning, energy management, fire protection, indoor air quality, refrigeration, electrical, insulation, and plumbing services, as well as renewable energy solutions, island-wide for both residential and commercial applications.
The company began in the early 1950’s under the name Modern Supply Company. The original company sign now hangs in BAC’s administrative offices as a testament to the company’s origins. Modern Supply Company was the brainchild of John Young, a successful Bermudian who traveled all over the island selling everything from vacuum cleaners to carpets. Modern Supply Company was originally located in the Supermart building on Front Street. In 1965, the company became distributors for Carrier air conditioning equipment and the name of the company changed to Bermuda Air Conditioning (BAC) Ltd. This change in direction resulted in rapid growth for both the company and employees, and necessitated a move to new premises on Dundonald Street East. When that location was destroyed by fire in 1977, BAC temporarily moved to the Atlantic Building on Par-la-Ville Road, before settling on a location at Spurling Hill.
As the company continued to grow and expand in the ensuing decades, it became necessary once again to move to a larger space. In 1992, a decision was made to build entirely new premises on Mills Creek Road in Pembroke, the home of Bermuda Air Conditioning today. In 1994, employees of Bermuda Air Conditioning moved into their new location, which housed offices, warehouse space, service departments and workshops. In 1995, the retail showroom opened at the same location. In 2002, Bermuda’s first Kohler Premier Showroom officially opened, providing BAC with a stunning space to showcase Kohler plumbing fixtures.
In 2009, Mills Creek Properties Ltd, a subsidiary of Bermuda Air Conditioning Ltd. (BAC), broke ground on a new 77,500-square foot building on Mill Reach Lane in Pembroke. Designed by well-known Bermudian architectural firm Linberg & Simmons, the six-story building is located on 0.45 acres directly behind BAC’s current facility on Mill Creek Road, providing additional space for the Group as well as rented net warehouse space. The top level of the building contains studio apartments for short-term BAC employees.
The BAC Group has always been a part various community events. From summer events such as Cup Match to the annual Jingle Bells marathon the BAC Group events can be see throughout the island year round.
