Cummings Plumbing Heating and Cooling acquires Baker Brothers Plumbing Heating and Cooling
Kevin Cummings, Owner of Cummings Plumbing Heating and Cooling, announced that Cummings Plumbing Heating and Cooling has acquired Baker Brothers Plumbing Heating and Cooling; effective immediately. The acquisition has been something that Kevin has wanted since October 2017.
“It made good business sense to acquire Baker Brothers Plumbing Heating and Cooling,” said Kevin. “Cummings Plumbing Heating and Cooling has been growing substantially so we started looking at different business opportunities. We reviewed Baker Brothers’ book of business, their income to debt ratio, their employees’ credentials, and their liabilities. In the end, we decided that this would be a smart and strategic business move for us. Baker Brothers Plumbing Heating and Cooling has been in the Tucson market since 2003 so they have a good saturation here. In addition, they are a top-rated company that focuses on repipes; something I want to concentrate on.”
With this acquisition, Cummings Plumbing Heating and Cooling gains a company that has 15 years of plumbing experience in the Tucson market, trained office staff and technicians, a fleet of plumbing trucks, and a 5-acre yard/facility in Rillito, AZ. During the transition period, Baker Brothers’ customers (both past and present) may, at their discretion, request Baker Brothers technicians instead of Cummings technicians. “We understand that customers build relationships with their technicians,” said Kevin. “We see that here at Cummings. It’s often that a customer will call us asking for a specific technician to go out to their home; one that they know and trust. We pride ourselves in creating these personal relationships with our customers and do not want to take that away from Baker Brothers’ customers. We are confident, however, that our new Baker Brothers’ family (both employees and customers) will acclimate to the changes as we work hard to both earn and keep their trust, respect, and loyalty.”
As of 5 pm MST today, Baker Brothers’ doors will be officially closed and Cummings Plumbing Heating and Cooling will take over. All phone calls, website inquiries, and social media will be redirected and handled appropriately. “We are excited about this move,” said Kevin. “The Cummings team is working hard to make everything a smooth and seamless transition for both Baker Brothers’ employees and customers. This new chapter is going to be very good for both us and our customers.”
