The Ball Ground-based HVAC preventive maintenance, repair and retrofit/replacement company R&D Mechanical Services, Inc. announced recently it was being acquired by Rogers Mechanical Contractors, Inc.

Headquartered in Villa Rica, Rogers is a larger HVAC/mechanical and plumbing contractor serving customers across the country, focusing on the distribution warehouse market.

“We are excited to partner with a dynamic and well-regarded organization like Rogers,” R&D Chief Operating Officer Heath Matiak said in a statement. “R&D and Rogers share common values that prioritize customer value and employee well-being. We are confident that the culture and reputation in which we have invested so much sweat equity will continue and flourish as part of Rogers. This new partnership will create an abundance of additional opportunities for our team. (Company owner) Robbie Matiak and I are excited for this new chapter for our team.”

Rogers Mechanical Contractors, led by CEO Dustin Rogers, is a platform company within Craft Work Capital, a firm established focused exclusively on making investments in mechanical and electrical contractors throughout the U.S.

“When we made our investment in Rogers last year, we also made a commitment to Dustin and the Rogers team to help them seek out and invest in quality companies that would expand their offerings, as well as fit within Rogers’ culture. This investment in R&D is an important step in fulfilling that commitment,” Craft Work President Jeremy McGuire said.

Craft Work Capital Partners Vice President Dave Orinski added, “The R&D acquisition is an important step to bolster Rogers’ service and preventative maintenance offerings. It will also complement their retrofit and new-build core service offerings with existing and future customers. We look forward to continuing to acquire complementary service businesses, as well as growing organically.”

Beginning immediately, R&D Mechanical Services will begin operating as Rogers Mechanical Contractors. As part of the transaction, all employees of R&D Mechanical Services will be retained and new additional employment opportunities will be posted online.
