SPARTANBURG, S.C. — Southern HVAC Corp. acquired George M. Hill & Sons Inc. Since 1945, George M. Hill & Sons has provided customers throughout Spartanburg, Greenville, and the greater upstate market with highly rated heating, air conditioning maintenance, repair, and replacement services. George M. Hill & Sons will merge with Five Star Plumbing Heating & Cooling to provide home service solutions to homeowners in the Greenville-Spartanburg market.

"I'm proud of the business we've built here at George M. Hill & Sons,” said Tod Ramella, owner, George M. Hill & Sons. “The decision to move on from the business did not come easily; however, due to personal circumstances surrounding my health, I felt it was necessary to find a partner that could continue to care for our customers and employees. When evaluating potential partners, it was clear that Five Star Plumbing Heating & Cooling would not only honor the customer and employee relationships that we have built over the past 75-plus years but that they would be able to go above and beyond with their additional plumbing and electrical service offerings."

"We are thrilled to partner with such a well-respected and long-standing brand like George M. Hill & Sons,” said Ingrid Verseeuw, general manager, Five star Plumbing Heating & Cooling. “The opportunity to continue to grow in the Greenville-Spartanburg market with such a strong brand and loyal customer base is incredibly exciting. Over the next few months, we intend to invest in additional technology, training, and resources to build upon the excellent service George M. Hill & Sons customers have received over the years."
