The recent acquisition of JMAC Radiator and Air will dramatically increase 1-800-Radiator's presence in the air conditioning market, says a spokesperson for the company. The company, which is one of the largest independent auto parts distributor in the nation, recently announced its purchase of the air conditioning distributor. JMAC holds a key position in the air conditioning market as a $13 million dollar company with 18 locations, covering two thirds of the country.
"The acquisition of JMAC sets 1-800-Radiator to leverage a strong competitive force in 2008," says Mike Rippey, the company's CEO.
Through years of success, JMAC developed massive databases and software that helped make the company a leader in air conditioning parts sales. Armed with these assets 1-800-Radiator will approach the air conditioning market with the same power that has allowed 1-800-Radiator's franchise network to dominate the radiator market.
Beyond JMAC's technology, other assets include nearly 90 percent of JMAC's staff, including the key leadership of Ryan McKenna, general manager of nationwide sales. JMAC's software engineers, sales and technical staff will be retained to maximize the value for 1-800-Radiator's franchisees and the loyal customers who know both companies well.
Entrepreneur magazine recently named 1-800-Radiator as the 37th fastest-growing franchise in the nation in their Annual Franchise 500® rankings for 2008.
