Insurance adjuster HVAC Investigators has purchased competitor HVAC Forensics, previously owned by Donan Engineering. Terms were not disclosed.

The purchase will benefit existing customers of both companies, said HVAC Investigators President Matt Livingston.

“The integration of Donan's HVAC Forensics team and its extended technical expertise is a powerful addition to HVACi's current network,” Livingston said. “Additionally, the growth of the network following the HVAC Forensics acquisition will allow HVACi to service loss locations at faster turnaround times.”

As part of HVAC Investigators, Forensics’ footprint will grow from 23 states to nationwide with an 800-person network, added Damon Stafford, HVAC Investigators’ CEO.

“We are excited about the opportunities this strategic acquisition will bring in advancing our leadership in the on-site HVAC assessment business and enhancing services for clients of both organizations,” Stafford said. “Not only will this provide current HVAC Forensics customers with a nationwide service, but it will also expand the technical depth of the current HVACi network of technicians.”
