Goettl Air Conditioning recently announced that it had acquired Walton’s Heating and Air, a family owned HVAC firm situated in Southern California. This has not only expanded Goettl’s reach in the HVAC market but it has also boosted their reputation.
How the Goettl-Walton Deal Was Closed
Goettl, which has locations in Tucson, Las Vegas, and Phoenix, has solidified her reputation in California ever since buying Walton’s Heating and Air. According to Todd Longbrake, the former owner of Walton’s Heating and Air, Goettl has managed to develop the company further than he would have been able to achieve on his own.
In early 2015, Goettl expressed interest in the acquisition of Walton but Longbrake was skeptical. However, after researching on the reputation of Goettl and considering the reviews of experts in the HVAC industry, Longbrake accepted the offer. Although the acquisition deal was officially closed in mid 2015, Ken Goodrich, the owner of Goettl, announced the acquisition two years later.
Longbrake was retained by Goettl as a field supervisor and sales manager in the company. Goettl currently has a staff of 306 employees and following the acquisition, the company expects to recruit 200 more employees particularly in Phoenix and Tucson, the firm’s largest markets. Goodrich claims that his ultimate goal is to turn Goettl into a nationwide brand. He plans on expanding into northern California and Texas by 2018.
About Goettl Air Conditioning
Goettl Air Conditioning was created by three brothers, Adam, Bill, and John. After the Great Depression, they moved the company to Phoenix where it became the pioneer of heating and cooling services in the area. Goettl Air Conditioning later started dealing with evaporative coolers. The brothers further expanded the company’s services to Arizona.
Since its establishment, Goettl has dedicated itself to providing heat and air conditioning services. The firm experienced tremendous growth in 2013 after it was acquired by Ken Goodrich. The company now has operations in Phoenix, Las Vegas, Tuscon, and Southern California. Goettl is now among the best HVAC service providers in the industry.
Goettl has continued the company’s tradition of providing comfort systems to thousands of businesses and homes in Arizona. With its new remodels and builds, its custom homes and commercial projects, Goettl’s track record of housing developments is impressive. Some of the projects with Goettl’s installations include Del Webb Cottonwood Ranch, Mountain Gate, and the Verde Valley-Brookfield communities.
