Goettl Air Conditioning is an HVAC service provider offering excellent services in heating and air conditioning. The firm serves its clients in Tucson, Phoenix, Southern California and Las Vegas. An article published by Glass Door shed light on Goettl’s deal of purchasing Walton’s Heating and Air, an air conditioning firm located out of Southern California. However, the article didn’t disclose the financial details as they remain unknown to the public.
Solidifying Its Presence in California
Purchasing Walton’s Heating and Air means that Goettl will increase its presence in California. The firm already has branch offices in Las Vegas, Tucson, and Phoenix. Goettl is expected to grow the business beyond what Todd Longbrake, the owner of Walton’s Heating and Air could do. According to Longbrake, the firm had reached a plateau stage, and he had nothing more to do to help the business grow.
When Goettl approached Longbrake with a purchase deal, he was reluctant for some time. He only accepted the contract after Ken Goodrich, the owner of Goettl convinced him with promising remarks. The deal was finalized in mid-2015. Longbrake further states that since signing the deal, the organization has grown significantly. Currently, Longbrake is in charge of sales and also serves as a field supervisor.
According to Ken Goodrich, Mr. Longbrake has become a central part of the company. Although the deal was finalized in 2015, Goodrich took two years to announce the agreement. He states that the delay was as a result of operational and marketing complications within Walton’s Heating and Air. Goodrich wanted to handle all the challenges before announcing the deal publicly. Goettl managed to overcome these challenges due to the value that Goodrich thought the organization would bring to Goettl.
A Similar Family Background
Just like Goettl, Walton’s is a family owned business. This attracted Goodrich to purchasing the firm when it was in its stagnant phase. Mr. Goodrich saw the organization as a platform to grow his company.
With the acquisition, Goettl now boasts of over 306 employees and plans to add 200 more jobs especially in Phoenix and Tucson, where the organization has a large consumer base. As part of their commitment to making Goettl a national brand, Goodrich projects to expand the firm to northern California and Texas in 2018.
