Goettl Air is at it again. They bought another southern California family owned business called Walton’s Heating and Air. Owner Todd Longbrake of Walton’s said that the family business had become stagnant, but did his best. He believes that the decision to sell the business to Goettl has worked out for the better. He did not always think so. When Goettl came to Longbrake about the acquisition he was reluctant to hand it over. Over time he heard many positive things about the Goettl’s CEO and owner, Kenneth Goodrich. He learned about his philanthropy endeavors, and how he strives for excellence and great customer service. This won Todd Longbrake over and he hasn’t looked back ever since.
Since Walton’s was retained by Goettl it has made a huge turn around. Longbrake even joined the team as field supervision and sales manager. He has fit in completely as a leader, Goodrich said. He saw the potential in Walton’s to grow even bigger. They had similar values and family background as Goettl. The acquisition went through in 2015 but could not announced until they worked out a couple of bugs. There were marketing complications and operational issues within the business that had to be changed to move forward.
Kenneth Goodrich said that Goettl is looking to become a nationwide brand. Their next stop is Northern California and Texas. They currently have 306 employees and is looking forward to filling 200 more jobs in the near future. For more details visit Crunchbase.
