Southwest Residential HVAC Firms Merge to Serve Diverse Markets

The Goettl and Las Vegas Air teams.

Goettl Air Conditioning recently merged with Las Vegas Air and Paradise Air, adding more than 20 employees and more than 15 trucks. Las Vegas Air primarily serves residential customers. Paradise Air services the multi-family and rental home market.

“The addition of Las Vegas Air and Paradise Air makes perfect sense as Goettl continues to grow our footprint in the Southwest,” said Ken Goodrich, owner of Goettl Air Conditioning. “We’re excited to integrate these companies into the Goettl family and know it will positively benefit our customers.”

“With this recent merger, two second generation HVAC family businesses have come together to complement each other’s strength and continue our mission to provide quality service with integrity in the Las Vegas Valley,” Goodrich said.

Stephen Gamst, a partner at Las Vegas Air, said he was attracted to the Goettl team for several reasons.

“I wanted to take better care of my employees and customers,” he said. “I felt Goettl and Las Vegas Air was a good mix of strengths and qualities so the collaboration made a lot of sense.”
“I grew up seeing Ken Goodrich at the parts store with his father while I was there with my father. We were raised with the same values and have HVAC in our DNA. I knew together, we could truly do something great,” Gamst said.

Goettl Air Conditioning was established in Arizona in 1939. Goodrich acquired the company in 2013 and brought Goettl to his hometown of Las Vegas in April 2016. Since 2015, Goettl has recorded 500 percent year-over-year growth.

“The merger between Goettl Air-Conditioning, Las Vegas Air, Paradise Air and The Sunny Plumber has brought a number of additional offerings,” Goodrich said. “The Las Vegas Air and Paradise Air service offerings were limited to HVAC, this merger is now providing their customer base with quality plumbing services. Goettl Air Conditioning was limited to residential, this merger is expanding services into the light commercial sector to include multi-family properties, and strip malls.”
