Built On Serving

Marlin James takes your comfort seriously. Since day one, our top priority has been to exceed all expectations and leave no stone unturned.


Family Owned & Operated for Three Generations

We are family owned and operated. With the dream of two individuals, Marlin James opened its doors on January 21, 1994. James “Red” Griffin and Marlin “Scott” Clark Sr., with five decades of experience combined, founded Marlin James, Inc on an incredible combination of loyalty, integrity, and just plain pride that lives on to this day. After Red’s retirement in 2006, his daughter, Glenda Clark, took over his control of the company. In 2016, Marlin Clark Jr joined making it a 3rd generation company.
We strive to provide the absolute best experience to everyone we meet. We take pride in keeping our families comfortable year-round. Recognized for our leading craftsmanship and service etiquette, Marlin James Inc. has the skilled workforce and factory-certified training to maintain your commercial or residential equipment in optimal working order. Our mission statement is taken very seriously by all employees. It is visible in the office, on their uniforms, and in their vehicle.

Our Mission: "To serve all with integrity while striving for excellence"

The word “Serve” means we serve all we come in contact with as we would serve God, with a servants heart. In 2019, we celebrated 25 years in business, which is a testament to our mission statement.

What Makes Us Unique:

Employees perform all of our work. We never use subcontractors.
We do not pay our employees based on commissions, nor do they have quotas to meet. Thus, there is no personal gain in “selling” a customer something they do not need or want. We warranty our work on service calls for one year(with the exemption of clogged drain lines)
