In 1948, my great grandfather, Edgar Buys, retired from the automotive industry in Detroit, and began to pursue his passion for fixing things - mostly kitchen appliances. He was fascinated with refrigeration and began Buys Refrigeration Service after migrating to Gainesville to escape the snowy Michigan winters. My grandfather, Robert “Bob” Martin, joined Great Grandad 10 years later. In short order, Buys & Martin Refrigeration was born. And, as they say, the rest is history!
I began working in the family business, in Gainesville, during the summer and after school while I was growing up; learning to install appliances, altering cabinets and countertops to accommodate new built in appliances and learning the value of hard work. I learned every aspect of the family business from my Dad, Uncle and cousins. Martin Appliance expanded to Jacksonville after I graduated from college, in 1997.
I've always loved building things, so diversifying and expanding into fabrication and installation of natural granite countertops and learning the cabinetry business from the ground up was a natural fit and quickly became a passion of mine. I am proud to now offer full scale kitchen remodeling, as a state of Florida licensed Certified Residential Contractor (CRC1330991), and as an expert in cabinets, granite and appliances.
