HomeServe USA , a leading provider of service plans, repair, and installation services for the home, has announced the acquisition of Ken Griffin Plumbing Services Inc. The family-owned company, which is based in Dayton, Maryland and services all of Howard County, was founded over 30 years ago in 1989 and led by Ken and Kathy Griffin. They boast an A+ rating from the Better Business Bureau and have won numerous accolades including the honor of being voted 'Best of Howard County' for 24 years in a row.
The Ken Griffin team mainly serves residential customers, but also offers commercial services to area businesses. As a full-service plumbing company, Ken Griffin offers a spectrum of services, including repair and replacement of water heaters, toilets, faucets, as well as drain cleaning, leak detection, gas piping and installation of gas appliances, well water treatment, well pump repair and replacement, and general preventative maintenance and emergency services.
Ken Griffin, founder of Ken Griffin Plumbing Services, and all of the existing staff will stay on board to keep the company running smoothly and serve the customers who depend on them every day.
"Starting and growing this business for the last three decades has been one of the most rewarding experiences of my life," Ken Griffin said. "For this next chapter, we are thrilled to partner with HomeServe and to continue our commitment of providing top quality service for residents in Howard County and beyond. We can’t wait to see where this journey takes us."
The acquisition of Ken Griffin Plumbing Services marks acquisition number five in the greater D.C. area for HomeServe. The news comes just over a year after HomeServe acquired nearby Columbia-based Environmental Systems Associates (ESA), a provider of residential heating and air conditioning in the area since 1972 and fellow 'Best of Howard County' award winner.
"Ken Griffin has been a staple in the greater Metropolitan D.C. area for over three decades and their plumbing services will be highly complementary to ESA’s HVAC services," said Deb Dulsky, global managing director, HVAC, HomeServe. "We are excited to have two of Howard County’s 'Bests,' along with CroppMetcalfe and the other great brands we have serving the greater Metropolitan D.C. and Baltimore areas. We plan to continue our growth through strategic acquisitions, both in the Mid-Atlantic and in other regions across the country."
