DHR is a leading provider of refrigeration and HVAC service solutions to grocery, commercial, industrial, and retail clients across the Southeastern U.S. The acquisition builds on Source’s strong platform as a leading independent provider of commercial refrigeration and HVAC services in North America, serving the nation's top supermarket chains, many of the largest convenience store chains, and leading telecom companies.

“We're excited to add DHR’s service offering and strong customer relationships to our growing platform, and welcome DHR’s employees and customers to the Source family,” says Lauren Abrams, chief executive officer of Source. “Expansion in the southeastern U.S. has been a strategic focus of ours for several years,” Abrams says.

“The DHR acquisition, coupled with the recent openings of Source service operations in Florida and Georgia earlier in 2011, position us well for continued growth throughout the southeast.” comments Sal Gagliardo, an Operating Partner at Arsenal Capital. “DHR is well established in the southeastern U.S. market for refrigeration and HVAC services and has provided a long history of quality solutions and service to grocery, commercial, industrial, and retail clients. The acquisition of DHR and the merger with Source represents an important milestone in our strategy to expand our national footprint and to further build an industry-leading independent refrigeration and HVAC company."
