Long recognized as the east coast’s leading commercial HVAC, Refrigeration, Cooking and Plumbing installation, maintenance and repair service provider, the Day & Nite family of companies announced that it has acquired the assets of Performance Air Mechanical (of Pompano Beach, Florida).
Matthew Sher, Day & Nite’s President & CEO commented: “For the past decade, Day & Nite has been in a perpetual growth mode. We have accomplished that by continually adding service lines and developing and deploying cutting edge technologies. Most recently that has included expertise in helping our customers, bring peace of mind to their dining patrons and their staffs with the very latest innovations in air purification.”
Paul Beckett, Performance Air Mechanical’s Founding Partner and CEO said “As a third generation HVACR family owned and operated business with over 40 years designing, selling, installing and servicing a variety of air conditioning, heating, ventilation, refrigeration, humidity control and energy management systems with a reputation for extraordinary customer service and technical expertise, finding the right Performance Air Mechanical strategic fit has been my top priority. After deep and careful analysis of all options it became increasingly clear to me that only Day & Nite made sense as the natural partner for building on everything my wife and I started so many years ago.”
Founded by Susan and Paul Beckett, Licensed Class A Florida state contractors with the resources and expertise to handle even the most complex assignments, Performance Air Mechanical’s reputation is best summed up in a single word: reliability. With offices in Orlando and Pompano Beach, Performance Air Mechanical has been Florida’s most trusted name for longstanding employees and customers.
“Performance Air Mechanical is a perfect fit for us,” Sher continued. “We share core values and operating systems. Most importantly, there is a deep commitment to consistently superior internal and external customer experiences that mirrors our mission. As we look at this growth, we realize that it needs to be done at a pace in which we can serve each new marketplace.”
Sher explained: “To date all of this growth has been self-funded, organic, not because we didn’t have interest in acquisition but because there wasn’t a proper mutual fit. Growing from humble NY only roots to the Atlantic seaboard has, to date, not been through acquisition because in each case we opened our own office with our people. The Beckett’s and Performance offer us the first opportunity to adhere to our model.”
Starting in the 1970’s Kenneth and Irwin Sher founded Day & Nite Refrigeration/Air Conditioning. To further support the company’s world class foodservice clients All Service Commercial Cooking was launched in the 1980’s. Expansions into several significant states grew the Day & Nite/All Service company name, and in 2012 the company deepened its services with Popular Plumbing. Now in its sixth decade delivering sophisticated, cost-effective, integrated workplace environmental, patron and food safety in its self-performing eastern seaboard operation, and a growing national presence of authorized licensees.
Day & Nite’s recipe for growth has been marked by geographical expansion from its home base in New York throughout the East Coast. “In combination with other recent company developments, notably DNAS Global Facility Solutions and Day & Nite Performance Solutions, Performance Air Mechanical is a most welcome addition to our core Day & Nite Refrigeration, Day & Nite HVAC, All Service Kitchen Equipment and Popular Plumbing business units,” Sher concluded. Terms of the acquisition were not publicly announced.
