Hutchinson is one of the most preeminent HVAC, Plumbing, and Energy service brands on the East Coast.

 WILMINGTON, DE – Today, Horizon Group Holdings announced the addition of Hutchinson Heating, Cooling, Plumbing, and Energy Services to its family of brands.

George Hutchinson Sr. founded his family business in 1948 with a "Never Say No" mentality and commitments to better service, greater value, and accessibility. Today, the company has cemented its reputation as one of the most preeminent HVAC, Plumbing, and Energy service brands on the East Coast.

"This is an incredible moment for both brands," commented Charlie Haines, CEO of Horizon Group Holdings. "We share an enormous amount of mutual respect, as well as a philosophy of care for our employees and our customers. I'm always excited about the opportunities that are created for our employees with such a partnership."  Fred Hutchinson, President of Hutchinson, added, "We had many options when we were considering the sale of the business, but Horizon was the one we were most excited about partnering with because we believe in their commitment to customers and employees alike."

"In addition to residential services, Hutchinson also operates a strong commercial division," said Haines. "We look forward to exploring opportunities to integrate their knowledge and experience into our business model."

Horizon Founder and Chairman Dave Geiger added, "The addition of Hutchinson to Horizon Group Holdings' family of brands further demonstrates our commitment to foundational growth through partnerships, shared principles, and strategy." The acquisition provides homeowners and businesses with expanded, industry-leading services and financing, plus access to new comfort technologies, including indoor air quality solutions.

The announcement also presents exciting opportunities for team members of both organizations. Access to new resources, locations, and experience will provide opportunities for personal and professional growth. "With over seventy years of customer expertise, and four generations of family care, the Hutchinson brand is as iconic as it is successful," said Haines.

Founded in 1987, Horizon Group Holdings is one of the largest and most referred home services companies in the United States, specializing in heating, air conditioning, plumbing, drain cleaning, and electrical repair.
