Commercial Foodservice Repair Merges With Tech 24

Commercial Foodservice Repair, a national leader in the service and repair of foodservice equipment, merged with Tech 24 on July 28. Tech 24 is an independent service organization offering equipment repair, HVAC, plumbing and electrical services to customers in Virginia, Baltimore, Washington DC and the surrounding areas.

The newly merged company plans to transition to the Tech 24 trade name, as it more closely reflects its long-term goal of providing HVAC, plumbing and electrical services to foodservice and retail customers. Headquartered in Greenville, South Carolina, the new company will serve 17 states, with over 330 service technicians offering coast-to-coast coverage and 24/7 reliability to leading retailers, QSRs, full-service restaurants and concessions operations.

“Rick White and his colleagues add comprehensive service and repair skills, plus longstanding authorized service agreements to the portfolio,” said Kurt Herwald, President and CEO. “We’re now the second largest service and repair company in the industry. Our plan is to build the company and grow our tech force, acquire other independent operators in selected regions, and offer our customers the unique ability to serve their multi-location needs.”

Both companies have enjoyed double-digit organic growth and are constantly on the lookout for quality technicians.  “Our technicians are the life blood of our business and the key to the high level of service our customers expect,” said Rick White.  The combined companies plan to continue their impressive growth, particularly in the Northeastern corridor, with the grand opening of the new Baltimore location on Monday, August 4.
