Modern Niagara HVAC Services, Inc. Ontario, Canada, has strengthened its corporate holdings, and the Linc Service Network, with a new company, Atlantica HVAC Services.
Effective April 1, Modern Niagara purchased a $40 million mechanical contracting business in Halifax, Nova Scotia. Soon after the purchase was complete, Modern Niagara acquired the franchise rights to service the Halifax area – including the Atlantic Provinces of New Brunswick, Newfoundland, Nova Scotia, and Prince Edward Island – from Linc Network, LLC. The company was then re-named Atlantica HVAC Services and became the latest contractor to join the growing, Linc Service Network spanning the US, Canada and Bermuda.
Linc Service Contractors follow the disciplines of the Linc System in delivering preventive maintenance – as well as heating, ventilation and air conditioning (HVAC) service and bundled energy solutions – to the commercial market.
Modern Niagara HVAC Services President Rick Bracken had been looking to establish a Linc franchise in the Atlantic Provinces for nearly a year, hoping to make a purchase by finding a small contractor that was interested in selling. So when the opportunity arose to implement a structured service business in the area, Bracken saw a perfect fit for his company’s needs. The acquisition also includes obtaining a fire protection business – Life Safety Systems.
“We’re now the largest commercial mechanical contractor in Atlantic Canada, and we’re just beginning to tap into our customer base,” Bracken says.
“We plan to open multiple offices in the area and utilize the Linc System to, hopefully, double the amount of business from last year.”
