NEWARK, DE, September 1, 2022 – Strikepoint Group Holdings (SGH), formerly Horizon Group Holdings, one of the largest and most referred home services companies in the United States, recently announced that it has acquired Mr. AC Cooling & Heating, a highly regarded residential and commercial HVAC company serving Florida’s Manatee County, Sarasota, Bradenton and the surrounding area.

I know that Strikepoint shares these values, which is why I chose to partner with Strikepoint to take the business and our employees to the next level.”
