Just weeks after being forced to close its doors as a result of the fraud investigation with parent company, Worley & Obetz, Ranck Plumbing Heating AC is back in business and resuming its plumbing, heating and AC service to customers in Pennsylvania’s Lancaster County.
The plumbing company was put up for auction recently and eventually went to local investors, Art Dodge III and Greg Millen, for $1.6 million.
“Ranck is extremely grateful and humbled by the outpouring of support it has received since the abrupt closure,” states a press release posted on the company’s website. “Our number one priority is getting back to the business of serving our customers who have continued to stand by us during this trying time. Ranck emerges in a position of financial stability, which will sustain the company and its faithful employees far into the future.”
Ranck sales manager Jamie Brubaker told LancasterOnline.com the company expects to start accepting emergency calls midday on July 2, and hopes to be fully functioning by July 5.
Ranck employed about 65 people when it closed, Brubaker said, estimating that three-quarters or more of that number are returning.
According the press release, Ranck will be contacting customers who missed a service appointment to “determine their current need and schedule appointments as quickly as possible.”
