The pioneer of air conditioning Goettl Air Conditioning, on its bid to dominate national air conditioning market, recently backed up its goals with actions by expanding their reach into southern California, the CEO and owner Ken Goodrich added that they are also planning to serve the northern California.
The south move was made possible through the acquisition of Walton’s Heating and Air, an HVAC company located in southern California, though the details of the process weren’t made public until after sometime in a view to avoiding some complications in marketing and operations.
The acquisition story was first published in Phoenix Business Journal.
Walton’s has been given a chance to grow beyond its territories where Todd Longbrake, the owner, couldn’t. Goettl Air as well will be having a firm position all over California which is an added market on top of Phoenix, Las Vegas and Tucson.
Details emerged that Longbrake, Walton’s owner, was unwilling to let go his company when Goettl showed interest back in early 2015. But actual and encouraging words traveled all over the HVAC market about the Goettl and its CEO Goodrich, and that’s what convinced Longbrake to accept the offer.
True to what Longbrake had heard about Goettl, they have witnessed tremendous grow after joining Goettl in mid-2015. Goodrich also commented that Mr. Longbrake adopted the company’s culture sooner than expected, and he is now among the top leaders at Goettl.
Longbrake is now working as the sales manager and field operations supervisor at Goettl Air.
Goodrich mentioned on Linked In that both Goettl and Walton’s have a similar background; both had family ownership. He also added that although Walton’s at the time of acquisition, had stagnant growth, Goettl moved on anyway because they saw an opportunity to grow.
The fruits of the acquisition are evident; the company is now creating more job opportunities, adding 200 more jobs on top of 306. Those benefitting more are the company’s largest consumers, Phoenix and Tucson.
