GroupXcel, of Brentwood, Tenn., has announced the purchase of Nashville-based Total HVAC, a supplier of HVAC service as well as refrigeration/kitchen equipment maintenance.

Total HVAC has a 10-year history of providing HVAC services and installation for commercial, industrial, and residential buildings throughout Tennessee and five other Southeastern states.

GroupXcel, founded in 1995, has grown from a janitorial, commercial refrigeration, and equipment maintenance specialist into a full-service provider for commercial/industrial facilities working with clients in Alabama, Georgia, Kentucky, North Carolina, South Carolina, and Tennessee.

"Our group of service companies has a very strong customer service record with a growing list of customers," said Mike Dye, GroupXcel's managing partner and president. "Total HVAC joining our group increases our market share in the highly fragmented market for commercial building services. We're excited about our direction and proud to have such a highly respected company join our GroupXcel family."

GroupXcel provides building services for commercial and industrial facilities through the following operating companies: Total HVAC, ProImage Facility Services (janitorial and building maintenance), Iroquois Landscaping and Lawn Care (mowing, leaf removal, mulching, and pruning), and Smith & Rogers (floral and plant care).
