About Us

About our Cooling Tower Company

Our company was founded on the basic premise that our clients deserve an honest approach to their cooling tower construction and maintenance needs. It is in this approach our founder Jim Adams has successfully built and maintained relationships with a variety of different national and international businesses. His expertise and knowledge combined with his genuine desire to help his clients, has made East Coast Cooling Tower the most trusted source for all things cooling tower related.



Jim W. Adams is president of the company and third-generation cooling tower professional. At a young age, Jim started learning cooling towers from his uncles, his dad, and granddad which were all in the cooling tower industry.  As Jim grew up he learned the business side from his father who started and still owns and operated Adams Cooling Tower, Inc. Working in the field from labor to operations manager, he then went to work for a cooling tower rep firm for four years learning cooling tower design and selections. Taking his unique knowledge of fieldwork and extensive knowledge base combined with the technical side he noticed a high demand for his unique capabilities. For this reason, in 2008 Kelly Cooling Tower was Incorporated in Florida. Now known as East Coast Cooling Tower.

“I called another company to clean and inspect our cooling tower. They didn’t even clean it –  they did half the job! It’s a different experience with ECCT. They brought all of their cleaning tools and cleaned up after themselves. I’ve been working with Jim for 9 years and I’m extremely happy with his company. They did a heck of a job and this is a company you’ll be really satisfied with.”  
– Cecil P., Foley Cellulose

“Jim, the owner, is excellent- he’s honest and dependable. He has a team of professionals that do quality work and make safety their top priority. Their reports provide a lot of details and even a strategy on how to maintain our towers. I noticed that in the 4 years I’ve been working with them, they’re becoming more independent as a company by offering more services and better prices to their customers. “
– Joe G., Georgia Pacific LLC

“East Coast Cooling Tower was recommended to me by a cooling tower manufacturer 4 years ago. They were hired to replace the fill of an older tower and they did a fantastic job. We hired them again for the two following years for an annual inspection. Their crew did a very good job and they accomplished their tasks tremendously fast.”
– Saul S., University of Central Florida

“I am completely satisfied with East Coast Cooling Tower. They arrive on time and get things done quickly. When they leave, they clean up after themselves. Their quotes are very thorough, everything they do is documented. I don’t know what else they can do – they’re a great company.”
– BJ W., SNF Holding Company

“Exceptional! I really want to thank the East Coast Cooling Tower crew. They not only did a great job, they left their area cleaner than they found it. Looking forward to working with them again. Thank you!”
