Anchor Peabody Announces Expansion of its M&A Advisory Services into the HVAC, Plumbing & Electrical Sector

DELRAY BEACH, Fla., March 14, 2023–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Consistent with Anchor Peabody’s history of providing informed advice and thought leadership in construction industries with the most active merger and acquisition (“M&A”) transaction activity – Anchor Peabody reporting on the HVAC, plumbing and electrical trades has begun. Our coverage will include all constituents in and around the HVAC, plumbing and electrical industries with the goal of gathering the kind of granular industry knowledge needed to help our clients achieve outsized M&A outcomes.

Anchor Peabody’s HVAC, Plumbing & Electrical practice is led by Mr. Will Schryver, who joined Anchor Peabody as Managing Director in March 2023 to establish a presence as a leading M&A advisor in the US HVAC, Plumbing and Electrical practice to develop the electronics industry.

A need for specialized, high-performing, industry-focused investment banking services.

Our mission is to help family businesses and entrepreneurs understand the levers that drive value in an M&A process and seek to bridge the significant multiple arbitrage gap that exists today for the industry’s best independents. With over 50 private equity-backed platform investments consolidating HVAC, plumbing and electrical service companies across the US, we believe it is imperative for independent business owners and owners to be armed with the kind of financial acumen typically reserved for institutional investors is. We achieve this through a dedicated focus on HVAC, Plumbing and Electrical, striving to achieve best in class valuations, structure and conditions by knowing who is doing what and why.

The story goes on

The non-discretionary consumer spending that characterizes these companies, combined with new government incentives, has accelerated M&A in this highly fragmented market for the foreseeable future.

While there has been significant consolidation in the HVAC, plumbing and electrical sectors in recent years, we believe the consolidation will continue and will only intensify in the years to come. Requests for new institutional capital looking to enter the market due to its attractive, non-discretionary consumer spending drivers arise regularly, with many seeking non-auction situations. We believe that the sheer volume of interest from potential sophisticated buyers/investors compels a firm like Anchor Peabody to fit in the middle – allowing our clients to continue their businesses while we take care of the heavy lifting that goes into a structured M&A process is required.

Join us at the upcoming Air Conditioning Contractors of America Association (“ACCA”) Conference & Expo.

From April 2nd to 5th, 2023 we will attend the ACCA Conference & Expo in New Orleans. If you would like to meet with Will Schryver to discuss everything that is currently going on in the HVAC, plumbing and electrical fields, please contact him at or call (727) 415-3669.
