Pro-Tec Plumbing & Air has opened a new location in Ave Maria to enhance service and response times for residents of Ave Maria, Immokalee and inland areas.

The office, located at 5072 Annunciation Circle, Suite 211, is in the heart of Ave Maria’s business district and centrally located within the fast-growing community.

The Ave Maria location is Pro-Tec’s fourth in Southwest Florida. Pro-Tec was founded in 2008 in Naples, and the company has recently expanded with additional locations in Fort Myers and Babcock Ranch.

“Collier County’s residential, commercial and industrial growth is going east, and for many years, residents and businesses of those communities were underserved by Naples-based contractors that would not travel that far for service calls and repairs,” said Pro-Tec President and Co-Owner Rick Hume, Jr. “We have been serving customers in Ave Maria and Immokalee for more than a decade, and establishing a brick-and-mortar presence there further solidifies our commitment and willingness to be the region’s premier plumbing and HVAC company.”

Pro-Tec serves residential and commercial customers in Collier, Lee and Charlotte counties through its two distinct divisions. The company’s plumbing service division installs and repairs toilets, plumbing fixtures, water heaters, garbage disposals and water filtration systems, and technicians also provide leak detection, repiping, drain cleaning and sewer inspections. The heating, ventilation and air conditioning (HVAC) service division offers diagnostics and system repairs, as well as installations of condensers, air handling units, thermostats and ductwork.
