California-based home service company Rooter Hero announced the purchase of Specialty Contracting Group, a home services subsidiary of Enterprise Diversified (ENDI). The acquisition expands the Rooter Hero presence in the Phoenix area and allows the company to add heating, air and ventilation services.

The purchase adds four Phoenix-area locations to the Rooter Hero brand, and each of the following locations will be rebranded as Rooter Hero Plumbing & Air: R&R Refrigeration; Stevens Plumbing Heating & AC; Legendary Home Services; and Two Seasons Heating & Cooling.

“Rooter Hero has been offering exceptional plumbing and drain services for nearly a decade, but expanding our services to include HVAC has been a growing priority for us,” said John Akhoian, co-founder and CEO of Rooter Hero. “This move introduces those services and greatly expands our ability to serve homeowners in the Phoenix area.”

The purchase has been finalized, and Rooter Hero said the company has already integrated the four new locations into their operations, finance, marketing and human resource departments.

“We chose to pursue this transaction with Rooter Hero because we know that John Akhoian and his team will place the needs of the customers first,” said Steven Kiel, ENDI executive chairman. “We look forward to cheering Rooter Hero on as they continue their expansion."
