Phoenix-area home repair companies Goettl Good Guys Air Conditioning Repairmen and The Sunny Plumber have reached out to local military organizations that are focused on finding employment opportunities for servicemen and women. The companies encourage similar organizations in Arizona to contact them to see what job placement opportunities can be secured.
“Goettl Good Guys and The Sunny Plumber are intensely proud to reach out and provide some security to the heroes who have given up so much to defend our country,” said Dan Burke, CEO of Phoenix Peach, the investment fund that owns the repair businesses. “As a former Navy serviceman, I am acutely aware of the pressures to assimilate back into civilian life after military service. Hopefully, our companies’ efforts will ensure these brave men and women establish long-term careers, and in industries that pair well with training that many receive in the armed forces, like equipment maintenance and repair.”
The companies have previously shown support for veterans throughout Arizona as well. At local American Legion Posts, Goettl Good Guys has helped solve air filtration and air conditioning systems challenges, and has introduced a military discount program for veterans and their families. Goodrich asserts the companies will continue to show support for former military in the future through additional service offerings like this and by hiring former military servicemen and women for years to come.
“Building a workforce of technicians from disciplined military backgrounds will only advance the companies’ commitment to providing high-quality services,” Goodrich said. “Phoenix Peach will continue shaping these two companies to stand out for their community service and rapid repair of technology and plumbing at our neighbors’ homes.”
