In June 2017, Goettl Air Conditioning announced the purchase of Walton’s Heating and Air, a family-owned company with its headquarters in Southern California. The details of the transaction are still not available to the public. Purchasing the company meant that Goettl would grow the company beyond what its owner Todd Longbrake could take the firm. According to Longbrake, he had done all that he could to grow the company, but it had reached a plateau stage, and any further efforts and investments were not yielding any profits.
Longbrake Role after the Merger
Longbrake didn’t accept the deal when Goettl approached him, claims BizJournals.com. It was after hearing promising and successful stories from Ken Goodrich, the owner of Goettl Air Conditioning that he decided to join the company. However, Longbrake has nothing to regret as he has seen the joint companies grow tenfold since the acquisition. Currently, Longbrake serves as the field supervisor and sales manager. According to Goodrich, Todd Longbrake found it easy to assimilate to the company’s culture, and since then, he has been instrumental to the enterprise.
Delays before Publicizing the Deal
Although the deal was finalized in mid-2015, it took two years to announce the deal publicly. According to Goodrich operational and marketing issues within Walton’s Heating and Air are to blame for the delays. However, Goodrich didn’t give up on the deal as he believed that the two companies shared a family culture. Additionally, the Goettl owner believed that the company would give them an opportunity to grow and serve a huge consumer base, especially in southern California.
