SOUTHLAKE, TX. – December 5, 2011 – Berkeys, a leading provider of air conditioning and plumbing services to North Texas, today announced its acquisition of Southwest Air Conditioning & Plumbing, Inc., an HVAC and plumbing company headquartered in Keller, Texas.
Southwest Air Conditioning & Plumbing has been providing quality HVAC and plumbing services to the Keller community and its nearby neighbors for over 30 years. The company has been an active member in the Keller Chamber of Commerce and has been recognized by the Chamber for its excellent customer service. The company has also been lauded by readers of The Keller Citizen.
“I’m very proud of Southwest’s history and I know Berkeys will continue our legacy of service to the community,” stated Roger Kenyon, Owner and President of Southwest Air Conditioning & Plumbing. “Customers will appreciate their expertise and the level of caring that they deliver day after day.”
“The acquisition of Southwest is a key milestone in our growth strategy to be the premier provider of heating, air conditioning, and plumbing services to the Dallas/Fort Worth Metroplex,” stated Jamie Wooldridge, CEO of Berkeys. “Our staff is enhanced by more talented and experienced employees, ensuring that customers can always look forward to a first-rate service experience. We’re committed to reliable service, efficiency, and providing superlative products. This acquisition is just one more way to ensure that customers always get the best from us.”
The transaction closed in November and was subject to customary closing conditions.
For over 35 years, Texas-based Berkeys has been providing quality plumbing, heating, and air conditioning services to homeowners in the Dallas / Fort Worth metroplex.
The company sells America’s top-rated brands of heating and air conditioning equipment known for high efficiency, reliability, and serviceability. This includes the AccuClean™ air filtration system from American Standard which removes up to 99.98% of allergens from filtered air, and can be installed on most existing air conditioning and heating systems.
Berkeys 9-point air conditioning system and 14-point heating system precision tune-ups – BAM PLAN – ensure systems continuously operate safely and at peak efficiency. The key differentiator of the BAM PLAN is an 11-point inspection of a home’s plumbing system, including a check for underground leaks that can cause a home’s foundation to shift and crack. Over 12,000 tune-ups were performed for customers in 2010.
All Berkeys plumbers have passed rigorous state plumbing examinations and are licensed by the State of Texas; they understand the complexity of state plumbing codes all the way down to local requirements.
Berkeys maintains an A+ rating with the Better Business Bureau (BBB) and has led the field in area newspapers’ 2010 readers’ favorite polls. Readers of the Southlake Journal, Colleyville Courier, and Grapevine Courier voted Berkeys the top Heating and Air Conditioning company, and Southlake Times readers named Berkeys Best Plumber.
