American Residential Services Continues Growth Trajectory with Key AcquisitionsMemphis, Tenn—Feb. 1, 2016--American Residential Services (ARS), a Memphis, TN based privately held national provider of heating, air conditioning and plumbing services, announced that it has acquired three businesses to further expand its national footprint, Aspen Air, Greenstar, and Atlas Trillo.
ARS is entering the Boca Raton & Palm Beach area with Aspen Air Heating and Air ConditioningSM. Aspen Air is a well-established 32-year-old HVAC business. “We are thrilled to be joining the ARS team, who shares our goals of customer and employee satisfaction. We are looking forward to the opportunities for growth through this strategic partnership with ARS,” said Steve Maguire, Aspen Air’s President.
With the acquisition of Greenstar Home ServicesSM, ARS will be cultivating a stronger presence in Orange, CA and Las Vegas. The location serving Southern California will retain the Greenstar brand and continue to operate as an independent service center. The Las Vegas location will be merged with ARS’ local leading brand, Yes! Air Conditioning and Plumbing®. "ARS embodies the philosophies on which Greenstar was founded," said Jeremy Prevost, CEO of Greenstar. "Together we plan to install a customer-centric business culture that will help Greenstar realize its full potential.”
ARS has an extensive plumbing presence in the Bay Area, but with the acquisition of 62-year old Atlas TrilloSM, ARS will be adding HVAC services to its service offerings in this region. “For many years, we’ve served residential and commercial customers and provided energy efficient, environmentally safe heating and air conditioning solutions. We pride ourselves on customer satisfaction, which is at the center of the ARS philosophy,” said Andrew Trillo, President of Atlas Trillo.
Don Karnes, Chief Executive Officer of ARS, said, “We are excited to kick off the new year by adding these stellar businesses to our national network. Aspen Air allows us to enter into the attractive Palm Beach area, Greenstar will allow us to serve even more customers in markets we are already in, and Atlas Trillo will widen our service portfolio in the Bay Area. The decision to acquire these businesses coincides well with our strategic vision for nationwide growth.”
