About three months ago, Goettl Air Conditioning announced that they were acquiring a HVAC company known as Walton’s Heating and Air in Southern California. Walton’s is a family-owned HVAC company that has been in business for the past thirty-two years. Even though the deal’s financial details were not disclosed, the deal allows Goettl to solidify a strong presence in California.
Goettl Acquires Walton’s
According to Todd Longbrake, owner of Walton’s, in 2015 when Goettl showed the interest of acquisition he was adamant to jump onboard. However, afterwards, he heard positive comments about Goettl and its owner Ken Goodrich from people in the HVAC industry which made him change his mind. Throughout the acquisition process, Mr.Goodrich overcame the various hindrances that came his way. He also acknowledged that Walton’s shared the same values at Goettl’s and had a similar family background.
It is important to note that the acquisition was finalized in the mid-year of 2015 but Goodrich made the announcement in early June 2017 due to marketing and operational complications. In a report by Business Press Vegas, the company projects the addition of approximately 200 jobs in Phoenix and Tucson as a result of the acquisition. Longbrake has been retained in Goettl to serve in the capacity of a field supervisor and sales manager. Also, Todd Longbrake has assimilated into the culture of the company as a leader who plays an instrumental role in the operations.
I have used the following link in my submissions:
Goettl is a leading air conditioning company that currently has 306 employees. The company has been operational since 1939 and offers the best air conditioning and heating services in Phoenix, Las Vegas, and Tuscon. The primary goal of the company is to expand into a nationwide brand in northern California and Texas in 2018. The company attributes its success to its outstanding customer service and highly trained technicians who offer high-quality installation of air conditioning.
Apart from air conditioning services, Goettl (goettlshdm.com) also offers installation, duct sealing, maintenance planning, as well as repair and maintenance services. During winter, many people opt to contact Goettl to fix their heater, furnace and heat pump if they stop functioning. Goettl is the first company to establish evaporative coolers and refrigerators.
According to the company, air conditioning in Arizona is not a luxurious service but a life support system. Goettl offers high air quality products which ensure that the atmosphere in people’s houses is clean and healthy to avoid potential health risks. See the company profile on crunchbase.com.
