Goettl Air Conditioning & Plumbing announced the acquisition of Dutton Plumbing, a provider of plumbing and drain services in Los Angeles and Ventura counties.

Located in Simi Valley, California, Dutton Plumbing  provides dedicated and dependable plumbing and drain services to approximately 10,000 homeowners annually. Dutton's focus on workmanship and complete customer satisfaction is reflected in its motto, "The Plumber You'd Send to Your Mom's House." Dutton treats its customers like family and strives to be every customer's "plumber for life.

The acquisition of Dutton significantly expands Goettl's footprint in the Southern California market. Goettl intends to continue providing plumbing and drain services under the Dutton Plumbing brand, while also introducing its award-winning HVAC service offerings to Dutton's loyal customer base as well as other homeowners in the surrounding area.

"In an effort to continuously perfect our service offerings, we pursued a partnership with a highly regarded industry leader in plumbing," said Goettl CEO, Ken Goodrich. "The industry holds a lot of respect for Eric Dutton, founder of Dutton Plumbing, his general manager, Eric Falconer, and the dynamic team of home service professionals these gentlemen have assembled. I am excited to be part of the next leap forward for Goettl, side by side with team Dutton."

"To be aligned with a legacy company like Goettl is truly an honor," said Eric Dutton. "We are excited to offer HVAC services to our customers through one of the industry's best operators. I have been approached many times over the years for opportunities like this, but only after being given the opportunity to work with Ken Goodrich and his team, did I feel that it was a true benefit for my family, my loyal employees, my customers and myself. It was important for me to take the opportunity to do business with someone who is not only an icon in the industry, but also someone who I like and enjoy working with."

"All Dutton employees will be joining a top team of professionals that take pride in delivering personalized service and excellence in installation, consistent with the promise of the Goettl brand," noted Goodrich.
