DAYTON, Maryland–(BUSINESS WIRE)–HomeServe USA (HomeServe), a leading provider of home service plans, repair and installation services, today announced the acquisition of Ken Griffin Plumbing Services, Inc. A family-owned company, based in Dayton, Maryland and serving all of Howard County, was founded over 30 years ago in 1989 and led by Ken and Kathy Griffin. They enjoy an A+ rating from the Better Business Bureau and have earned numerous accolades, including the honor of being voted “Best of Howard County” for 24 consecutive years.
Ken Griffin’s team mainly serves a residential clientele, but also offers commercial services to businesses in the region. As a full-service plumbing company, Ken Griffin offers a range of services including repair and replacement of water heaters, toilets, faucets, as well as drain cleaning, leak detection, gas piping and gas appliance installation, well water treatment, well pump repair and replacement, general preventative maintenance and emergency services.
Ken Griffin, founder of Ken Griffin Plumbing Services, and all existing staff will remain on board to keep the business running smoothly and serve the customers who depend on it every day.
“Starting and growing this business over the past three decades has been one of the most rewarding experiences of my life,” said Ken Griffin. “For this next chapter, we are excited to partner with HomeServe and continue our commitment to providing superior service to residents of Howard County and beyond. We can’t wait to see where this journey will take us.
The acquisition of Ken Griffin Plumbing Services marks the number five acquisition in the greater DC area for HomeServe. Today’s news comes just over a year after HomeServe acquired Columbia-based Environmental Systems Associates (ESA), a provider of residential heating and air conditioning in the area since 1972 and winner of the “Best of Howard County”.
“Ken Griffin has been a fixture in the greater DC metro area for over three decades and their plumbing services will be very complementary to ESA’s HVAC services,” commented Deb Dulsky, Global General Manager, HVAC at HomeServe. “We’re thrilled to have two of the ‘best’ in Howard County, along with CroppMetcalfe and the other great brands we have serving the greater DC and Baltimore metro areas. We plan to continue our growth through strategic acquisitions, both in the mid-Atlantic and in other regions of the country. »
