Strategic acquisitions will expand the Company’s reach into new Charleston and Phoenix markets

New Harbor Capital portfolio company Fix-It 24/7 (“Fix-It”, “the Company”), has completed the acquisitions of AirMax Heating and Air (“AirMax”) and Emergency Air Heating and Cooling (“Emergency Air”). These strategic acquisitions continue Fix-It’s multi-branch operating strategy and bring the platform into two new markets: Charleston, South Carolina and Phoenix, Arizona, respectively. In total, the Company will now operate across four geographic markets.

AirMax Heating and Air is a residential and commercial HVAC company that has been servicing the Charleston, South Carolina community for over twenty years.

“We are excited to continue Fix-It’s growth strategy in these two new markets,” said George Donaldson, CEO of Fix-It. “We look forward to continuing to grow the businesses and providing the same premier and personable service that our clients have come to expect.”

“We are thrilled to join the Fix-It team,” added R. Medd Box, President of AirMax. “Fix-It’s scale, proven track record of success, and welcoming company culture are a natural fit for our organization.”

“We are very excited for the next season of business for Emergency Air,” said Rob Reed, Former Owner of the Company. “This partnership will enable the business to serve even more people throughout the Phoenix community, and the cohesive cultural fit will ensure that the same high-quality service that clients have come to expect is maintained.”

“These two acquisitions are a significant continuation of Fix-It’s multi-branch operating strategy,” said Drew Nicholson, Vice President at New Harbor Capital. “This type of geographic expansion has been part of our strategic vision since the beginning of our partnership with the Fix-It team. We look forward to helping the Company continue to grow throughout these new markets.”
