Tech24 Acquires RMS Mechanical Services
Tech24 Completes Seventh Add-on Acquisition
Tech24, backed by HCI Equity Partners, announced today it acquired RMS Mechanical Services, based in Ambridge, Pennsylvania, on [November 30, 2021]. Tech24 is a national provider of repair and maintenance services for food service and commercial HVAC equipment. RMS is Tech24’s seventh add-on acquisition in the highly fragmented foodservice repair and maintenance market. Financial terms were not disclosed.
RMS is a provider of foodservice and commercial HVAC equipment repair, maintenance and installation, offering hot and cold-side expertise for commercial kitchens throughout the greater Pittsburgh area. RMS is a complementary acquisition to AIS Commercial Parts & Service (“AIS”), a previous add-on acquisition completed by Tech24. The combination of AIS and RMS gives Tech24 significantly increased presence and a broader customer base in the greater Pittsburgh region.
“We are excited to add RMS to the Tech24 family,” said Dan Rodstrom, CEO of Tech24. “They come with a strong, established presence in the Pittsburgh area, a great reputation for customer service, and a company culture that is very similar to our existing team.”
Doug McCormick, HCI’s Managing Partner commented, “HCI platform companies like Tech24 are value creators that transform fragmented markets and benefit customers with new services and efficiencies. Tech 24’s dynamic growth shows the success of our consolidation and investment strategy, and we think RMS, a management-owned company, is a great addition to Tech24.”
