Business Description:
 Owner is ready to retire and will work with a buyer for a seamless transition.  This company has been the go-to enterprise for over 70 years for HVAC (60%) and plumbing (40%) needs in the area.  With their dedicated and talented staff, they service or replace units for their commercial (80%) and residential (20%) customers.  This business operates out of a 5,000 square foot office/warehouse building.  This fully certified firm operates in 11 cities/markets where they have top-of-mind awareness and name recognition.  They provide HVAC, plumbing and environmental services to their large commercial customers.  They currently have $2.5 million in signed contracts for upcoming jobs.
Historical Summary:
 This company traces its roots back to the late 1940s, initially providing plumbing and heating services to commercial and residential customers.  Even before it was established as a formal company, it’s founder introduced air conditioning to their market while working for his previous employer.
Owner Qualifications:
Buyer does not need to be HVAC licensed.  An electrical, H2 and H3 license are held by key employees committed to staying through the transition. Buyer should be proficient with Quickbooks, general HR, management, marketing, etc.
There are several competitors in their market that do residential and light commercial jobs.  However, this company is by far the largest, best equipped, and has the skilled employees to bid and win larger commercial contracts (including bonded work).  The nearest completers are located over 1 hr. away.  
Potential Growth:
 The owner has restricted the work to mostly a 35-mile travel area (however the company has some “special customers” that exceed that limit).  He has also limited the job sizes to approximately $1M each (Plumbing & HVAC managed as separate jobs).  If a new buyer is willing to decrease that cap 'there is more opportunity available.  This company works at several area hospitals (as well as their satellite clinics).  As the hospitals' preferred vendor they perform Plumbing, HVAC, & Medical Gas piping for maintenance work as well as new construction and renovations.  This company works for larger privately-owned surgery clinics, adult care centers, schools (community colleges, as well as K-12), and some factories.  This company does select military jobs for select contractors. however the opportunity for additional military work is almost unlimited.  If a new owner is interested there are tract housing and new construction opportunities available also.
