Our Story

1975 - 1992

In 1975, Harry and Sharon Rhyno started an appliances and refrigeration business, working out of their home in Riverport, Nova Scotia (the white house on the far right in photo above). For the next decade, they expanded the business to concentrate on heating, cooling, ventilation and refrigeration. In 1985, they relocated to Bridgewater to a larger commercial space on North Street. ​


1993 - 2019

Jayme Rhyno was just 13 when he started working with his father on weekends and during the summer. After graduating from high school in 1998, he joined the technical side of the business and began studying for his refrigeration license. In 2006, Jayme obtained his Inter-Provincial Journeyman License with a Red Seal. In 2010, Jayme took over the business so his father could retire.  The company continued to grow and by 2015, we moved across the street to a larger building that allowed for a office space and a shop. In 2016, the company celebrated 40 years in business.


2020 - present

 ​In April 2020, Rhyno’s and Langille’s Plumbing & Heating merged to become one larger company. Two long-established local companies joined together to provide a wider range of services. In 2022, we celebrated a successful two-year merger and Paul Langille was able to retire. We have since added an electrical division to our team, to continually provide better service for homeowners and businesses in Nova Scotia.
