C & C Heating & Air Conditioning celebrates 75 years as a leading Detroit area HVAC company

DETROIT, Aug. 15, 2023 ~ C & C Heating & Air Conditioning, a Detroit-area heating and cooling company with more than seven decades of experience, is celebrating its 75th anniversary this month. The company was founded in August 1948 by Joe Corrion and his brother Roger Corrion, two brothers who had immigrated from Belgium and were raised on their family's farm in Fraser, Michigan.

Dayna Hottle, the current general manager of C & C Heating & Air Conditioning and granddaughter of Joe Corrion, said that her grandfather's goal was to offer the best HVAC services in the area at a reasonable price.

"It's been a privilege to serve the citizens in the greater Detroit area for this long," said Hottle. "Our longevity is proof that his goals were reached."

Hottle's father Jim Corrion attended college with the help of his father's business. However, tragedy struck when Joe Corrion passed away suddenly from a heart attack in 1977. Both his sons and their families decided it was time to come back home to C & C and took over the business.

Hottle also put her time into C & C as a child by answering phones and performing light office work. She worked part time while she was in school, and worked during holidays and breaks while she attended Albion College in Albion, Michigan. After graduating with an economics degree, she began working as C & C's operations manager in 2005.

In 2016, Hottle's uncle passed away but the family rallied again to make sure that C &C stayed open and continued to serve its customers. By 2022, Hottle was ready to become the third generation of Corrions to take on the role of managing the family business as its general manger.

The company has grown significantly since its inception with 80 workers now employed along with a fleet of more than 50 trucks.

"I'm sure we've made Grandad proud," said Hottle who is determined to keep the company family-owned and operated for many years to come. "Our customers are our lifeblood," she added. "Without them, we wouldn't have made it 75 years."
