Kenneth D. Goodrich, managing partner of Phoenix-based Tucson Peach, LLC and Goettl Air Conditioning, announced today Tucson Peach, LLC has acquired Phoenix-based HVAC company Sonoran Air. The company will operate under the new name Sonoran Air Conditioning. A website for the new company is currently under development, but the company can be reached through Tucson Peach’s Goettl Air Conditioning.
Sonoran Air was founded more than 25 years ago in Phoenix. Since then, it has grown to become a specialist in the installation of air conditioning systems for new residential and commercial construction projects, as well as replacement and maintenance. To help strengthen its growth opportunities, Sonoran Air began a search for a strategic partner and joined forces with Goodrich.
Goodrich has more than 30 years of experience in the HVAC industry, creating, acquiring and growing several successful companies throughout the western region. With Goettl, he strengthened a marketing and referral relationship for more than a year with Sonoran, which eventually led to this acquisition, solidifying the employment future of more than 150 individuals at Sonoran Air in the process.
“We are pleased to bring Sonoran into our group of companies,” Goodrich said. “This acquisition extends our vision of providing a full spectrum of residential and commercial mechanical services in the Southwest, including new construction, service and maintenance, remodels and replacement. The Sonoran team members are the experts in extreme–climate HVAC solutions.”
Sonoran Air Conditioning will operate under its own HVAC contractors license, and Sonoran Air employees are currently transitioning to Sonoran Air Conditioning. Greg Cobb, the president of Sonoran Air, will take on the role of president of Sonoran Air Conditioning.“We look forward to continuing our mission of being the leading HVAC contractor in Arizona,” Cobb said. “By partnering with Ken Goodrich and Tucson Peach, we are leveraging our partnership to expand our scope of services and the markets we serve, as well as provide more jobs for our community and career opportunities for our team members.”
Goodrich has been focused on growing his own companies and the services they offer for the last few years. He and his team of experts own a number of well-known trade names and entities in addition to Sonoran Air Conditioning, including Goettl Air Conditioning and Arizona plumbing brand The Sunny Plumber.
