Business Description:

This 26 year-old plumbing and water treatment business developed a reputation for service trucks that are large enough to be called “a complete store on wheels.” Located in an interior suburb of a major Midwestern metropolitan area, this business was divided between 70% water treatment/softening, 20% plumbing and 10% furnace/air conditioning. The water treatment portion of the business was particularly profitable and represented a fantastic opportunity for a new owner to enjoy margins that would otherwise make other entrepreneurs of different businesses quite envious.


The owner experimented as a young man with forays in both construction and auto glass prior to pursuing plumbing and water treatment based on his growing interest in becoming a Master Plumber. In the early days, the company relied on telemarketing strategies to grow the business and the company grew very quickly—particularly in the water treatment area. It was fast discovered that many plumbers did not like the water treatment work and would happily refer this work to this company. As an added bonus, the water treatment business was very profitable on a margin basis when compared to other divisions of the company. The business differentiated itself with large “a complete store on wheels” service trucks that created an opportunity to offer quicker response times and make one trip to a customer rather than as many as three trips with a smaller vehicle. This created additional efficiencies for the company and greatly enhanced customer satisfaction.
