Benchmark International Successfully Facilitated the Transaction Between N&L Investment Corporation and Hufsey Mechanical

Benchmark International’s client N&L Investment Corporation, a provider of HVAC and plumbing services, has successfully sold to Hufsey Mechanical in Fort Worth, Texas.

N&L Investment Corporation is a provider of HVAC and plumbing services for residential customers. The business operates as a franchisee of two highly reputable franchises, Pitzer’s One Hour Air Conditioning and Benjamin Franklin Plumbing.

They provide ongoing training to their plumbers so that they can continue to provide installation, repair and maintenance services at the highest industry standards. The trust they have built with their customers has made them into a leading plumbing brand with loyal customers who count on them for safe, reliable service.

Benchmark International proved value in finding a buyer with experience in the industry through its proprietary multi-medium marketing strategies. In addition, Benchmark International incorporated several campaigns with local, regional, and national associations. This resulted in strong buyer interest allowing the seller to review many options and ultimately choose the strategic fit that aligned best with their succession plans.

Transaction Director Amy Alonso commented, “It was a pleasure to work with both parties throughout the sale process. Both sides were committed to providing the time and resources needed to get the deal across the line. We are confident that N&L Investment Corporation is in the right hands with Hufsey Mechanical, and we look forward to seeing their continued growth and success.”
