His father, along with his brother, have been a vital part of the cooling tower industry in the midwest region, had decades of skills and expertise to pass to his young sons. Soon the young Frietze’s knowledge and competence of industry standards grew and he was assigned to lead and supervise technical crews to complete cooling tower projects for his brother’s company.
Frietze worked while attending college at Howard Payne University in Brownwood, Texas. His desire to accomplish big things led him to join the US NAVY and after serving 20 years, he came back to his cooling tower roots with a fresh vision.
Making project management and customer satisfaction a primary concern, he went to work for a large cooling tower company working in the field as an Operations Manager.
