According to PR Newswire, Goettl Air Conditioning continues to flourish under the new ownership of ken Goodrich, company which was bought by the successful businessman in 2012.
Before Goodrich’s arrival, Goettl Good Guys Air Conditioning Repairmen had gone through a radical growth, but then the company stagnated. When Goodrich bough the company, he created a new managed team and retrained every current employee. He also hired new staff members and mangers. For Goodrich, a man who had managed and sold more than 20 HVAC companies, Goettl Good Guys needed something different. It was not about introducing new marketing tactics or prices, conventional problems which plague most stagnated businesses. It was about vision and excitement. The new owner quickly improved the company’s mission.

Currently, all technicians are required to take pictures of their installations.Goodrich personally examines every single installation before it is considered complete. According to Andy Ridgefield, the operations manager, the new process has perfected the moral of the technicians. The quality of the company’s installations are almost perfect. Ridgefield admits too that he has not meet a business man as knowledgeable and motivating than Goettl in his 25 of experience in the HVAC industry.
Dan Burke, the chief executive officer, admits that one of the biggest struggles was dealing with the radical changes that were occurring in departments such as accounting, information technology, human resources, and treasury. The rapid changes meant a big challenge, especially since new revised systems and processes had to be implemented as well. New hardware and software also had to be installed. But to Burke, such changes would have not been possible if not for the work ethic of his employees and trade partners. Burk sees that the company is making progress and that it is not longer in stagnation.
