The Walton’s Heating and Air which is Goettl Air Conditioning has acquired a HVAC company. The southern California based Walton’s Heating and Air is a family owned business.The business acquisition will expand the horizons of both companies. Previously GOETTL Air Conditioning presence was only felt in Tucson, Las Vegas, and Phoenix. Currently, the company can also be felt in California also.
According to achrnews.com, the owner of Walton’s Heating and Air, Todd Longbrake has also admitted that Goettl has also assisted his small scale business to grow further. However, when Goettl wanted to acquire Walton’s in early 2015 initially, Mr. Longbrake was a little bit apprehensive. It’s only after Longbrake heard glowing reports of Goettl and its owner Ken Goodrich and other people from HVAC that he made a decision.
The business transaction was completed in the middle of 2015. Nonetheless, Goodrich made the decision to announce it this year due to marketing technicalities and operational issues. Goodrich admitted that Longbrake was absorbed in Goettl’s culture and he was retained in the company as a field supervisor and sales manager. In addition to this, Longbrake has also proved that he has invaluable leadership skills. Goodrich also revealed that he has had to manage various hurdles during the acquisition, but he has endured them due to the importance he knew that Walton’s would offer Goettl.
Although Walton’s was dormant at the time of acquisition, Goodrich decided to acquire it because he believed that it was a valuable platform for business growth. Both companies have similar backgrounds which are rooted firmly on family backgrounds. Currently, Goettl has slightly over 300 employees. However, with the acquisition over 200 jobs are expected to be created especially in Phoenix and Tucson areas where the company enjoys a big client base.
According to the Goettl founder, the firm plans to develop further into Texas and northern California hopefully by the end of 2018. However, their long time plan is to have a presence all over America, see indeed.com.
