Strikepoint Group Holdings Acquires IERNA Heating, Cooling and Plumbing, Expanding its Growing Presence in Tampa Market

NEWARK, DE, September 1, 2022 – Strikepoint Group Holdings (SGH), formerly Horizon Group Holdings, of the largest and most referred home services companies in the United States, announced that it is expanding its growing presence in the Tampa market through the recent acquisition of IERNA Heating, Cooling, and Plumbing, a leading residential HVAC and plumbing contractor serving communities throughout Hillsborough, Pasco, Polk and Northern Pinellas Counties. SGH currently owns and operates several other brands in the Greater Tampa Bay area, including Pinellas Comfort Systems, Performance Air Conditioning, Electrical, and Plumbing, and Paradise Air. 
Since 2003, IERNA’s Heating & Cooling – a local, family-owned-and-operated, full-service HVAC and plumbing contractor – has strived to provide customers with excellent service for a fair and reasonable price. Operating with a strong commitment to customer service, IERNA’s certified team of professionals are licensed to perform repair, service, and maintenance on all makes and models of HVAC equipment.  
“Over the years, our business has grown as we’ve established long-term, trusting relationships with our customers and local communities we serve. No matter what heating, cooling or plumbing service is required, we always put the customers first,” said Charlene Irena. “This partnership will allow us to continue doing what we do best – and we are confident that Strikepoint has the expertise to take IERNA to the next level.” 
IERNA has proudly secured numerous industry certifications, including the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and North American Technician Excellence (NATE). Charlie Haines, CEO of SGH, said his company is excited to welcome a well-known brand like IERNA to its Tampa offering. 
“With this acquisition, our goal is to continue providing exceptional customer service while remaining a local employer of choice for those who work in the home services industry,” said Haines. “IERNA’s will make a great addition to the Strikepoint family of brands and will help to further solidify our leadership position in the greater Tampa Bay market.” 
The addition of IERNA’s into the SGH portfolio of best-in-class home services brands, which stretches from New England to Florida, is the 23rd deal since September 2020 for the fast-growing company. The company continues to experience rapid growth through acquisitions and partnerships with companies looking to expand their commitment to customers and enhance opportunities for employees. 
Terms of the transaction were not disclosed.
