Strikepoint Group Holdings Acquires Paradise Air, Inc.
Strikepoint Group Holdings (“SGH”), formerly known as Horizon Group Holdings, has acquired Largo, FL-based Paradise Air, Inc. The acquisition is SGH’s eighth of 2021. Paradise Air, Inc was represented in this transaction by HVAC business broker Patrick Lange with Business Modification Group, Horseshoe Beach, Florida.
Jill and Tim O’Connell opened Paradise Air in 2010 soon after arriving in Florida from the Midwest bringing with them the Midwestern work ethic and dedicating their time to doing the right thing for their customers and employees. Tim and Jill quickly established a successful Pinellas and Hillsborough County-centered business serving single-family homes and condominiums.
Jill and Tim built Paradise Air by relying on local networking and participation in community events. The company services equipment made by more than a dozen different HVAC manufacturers and is NATE-certified, Home Advisor-approved, and A+ Better Business Bureau (BBB)-accredited.
For the O’Connells, the decision to join Strikepoint was natural.
“Like Strikepoint, we’ve built our business by treating each customer as a family member,” Tim O’Connell said. “And their acquisition team made us feel the same way.”
Charlie Haines, CEO of Strikepoint Group Holdings, agreed. “We’re happy to bring Paradise Air into the Strikepoint family of brands. They have solid, experienced people, and have built a great relationship with their customers. We look forward to working with them to create new opportunities for their people and offer new services to their customers.”
Continuing to build partnerships with strong local companies like Paradise Air, Strikepoint is looking to work with outstanding local and regional brands. The goal is to help them expand the services they offer customers and enhance opportunities for employees.
