PLANO, Texas — Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning, Wheeling, Illinois, announced a strategic acquisition of Bryans Road, Maryland-based A-Plus Air Conditioning & Heating Co. The multimillion dollar purchase allows Service Experts to expand its footprint into northeast Virginia and south central Maryland.

Service Experts currently offers service in the Richmond (Eveready Service Experts) and Salem, Virginia, markets and in Gaithersburg, Maryland (Parker-Pearce Service Experts), but there is no overlap with the A-Plus service area, which includes Montgomery, Prince George’s, and Charles counties in Maryland, as well as Fairfax, Arlington, Prince William, and Loudoun counties in Virginia.

“A-Plus represents a perfect complement to the Service Experts business, both geographically and operationally,” said Scott J. Boxer, president and CEO, Service Experts. “We plan to expand and grow the center as well as seek strategic growth opportunities through other business development initiatives and acquisitions that fit our core business model.”

A-Plus Air Conditioning & Heating Co., founded in 1976, offers full-service residential heating and air conditioning repairs, maintenance, new equipment sales, and installation. Jay Stine, who joined the company in 1980, will serve as branch manager.
