PHOENIX - Dallas-based TDIndustries announced that it has acquired JBS Mechanical in Phoenix as part of the firm’s overall growth strategy in the state of Arizona. JBS Mechanical’s revenues are $2.2 million annually. The acquisition price was not disclosed.

According to Ed White, general manager of TDIndustries in Phoenix, “We believe that the greater Phoenix area is poised for growth, and this acquisition enables us to support that growth. JBS is a respected HVAC service contractor with loyal customers and a 20-year track record of service to this community. Our mutual business values and company cultures are a great match.”
