Orlando, Florida — Southern Home ServicesTM Corp. has announced the acquisition of Fox Service Company, a prominent residential and commercial HVAC (Heating, Ventilation, Air Conditioning), Plumbing and Electric service provider in Austin, Texas. Since 1972, Fox Service Company has established a 46-year reputation for exceptional customer service and satisfaction. Located at 4300 S Congress Avenue, Fox Service Company now employs 55 team members, serving a population of over one million residents, homeowners and businesses throughout greater Austin, Georgetown, Round Rock and San Marcos.
“We’re excited to continue the popular home service programs our customers have enjoyed over the years, yet the operation will eventually employ more automated and efficient business systems to better service our customers,” said James Bagby, General Manager of Fox Service Company. “As far as our customer’s current service agreements and service appointments, they will simply continue. However, our new partnership with Southern Home Services will allow us to continue to expand and improve on all our home comfort services and product lines, while enhancing the overall customer experience.”
Since its inception in 2016, Southern Home Services Corp. has enjoyed significant growth through both acquisitions and improved market share. The company currently services approximately two hundred thousand households annually, a figure that has more than doubled in size the past two years. As a result, Southern Home Services is now comprised of 8 brands and 13 service locations, employing over 500 experienced professionals in Texas, Florida and North Carolina.
Fox Service Company employees have already received more robust employee benefits and business resources as a result. According to Mike Stucky, CEO of Southern Home Services, “The employees of Fox Service Company fit well with the Southern Home Services culture and philosophy of creating customers for life with our guarantee of 100% satisfaction on every service. We see this new partnership as a great opportunity to expand the high-quality services that Fox Service Company customers have come to expect and enjoy by leveraging our shared resources, and offering even more efficient and affordable products and services.”
