SEATTLE, WA — The SEER Group LLC announced Nov. 11 its seventeenth acquisition, a majority stake in Brower Mechanical in Rocklin, CA. This is the second acquisition for The SEER Group LLC in California after its acquisition of Breeze Air Conditioning in Palm Desert, CA in 2018.

Founded in 1979, Brower Mechanical has served the residential and commercial heating, cooling, and air needs of the greater Sacramento region for over 40 years. The company will continue to be led by Partner and General Manager Duane Knickerbocker at its Rocklin, CA headquarters.

“We are thrilled to have Brower Mechanical joining our group and look forward to working with Duane as our newest partner as he continues to guide and manage the business,” states Darrin Erdahl, CEO and founder of The SEER Group LLC.

This acquisition highlights The SEER Group’s commitment to expanding in California while continuing to grow nationally.

“When evaluating a potential partnership opportunity, we look for market-leading brands with a strong company culture and that’s exactly what we found with Duane’s team at Brower Mechanical,” says Eric Beardemphl, president and partner of The SEER Group LLC. “Duane has taken a very innovative approach with Brower and it has allowed him to create value for customers while also building a culture supportive of continual development in his team members.”

“With all of the uncertainty in the HVAC world, I was looking to partner with a company that could help manage and hopefully lower our overhead,” says Brower Mechanical GM, Duane Knickerbocker. “That, and the ability for our department managers to learn from department managers of outside companies that are also part of The SEER organization is very unique in this industry.”
