David Heimer: Hi, this is David Heimer. Welcome to Profiles In Prosperity. Today, we get to speak with Joe Strittmatter, President of Strittmatter, which offers heating, air conditioning, plumbing, and roofing services. They have an amazing reputation in the Dallas, Fort Worth area. They are a trustworthy company, I hear from people that have used them all the time, and they unfailingly, have great stories to tell about them. Great stories in a good way I should say. They’re also known in our industry as a company that has grown really well and really fast, and is led by a really smart guy, Joe Strittmatter. So we’re really lucky to get to talk to Joe today. So Joe Strittmatter, welcome to Profiles In Prosperity.

Joe Strittmatter: Thank you very much for having me.

David Heimer: Tell us how you got into the industry. I always like to hear those stories.

Joe Strittmatter: I started, I was 12 years old. My dad had purchased his first HVAC company in 1980, in Lewisville, Texas. And you know, over the summertime, I guess to keep me from getting into trouble, I used to jump in the truck with him and run all over, running service calls with him or doing new construction and pretty much, was born into the industry.

David Heimer: Did you like it? You know, after doing it for a while, Yeah, this is fun. I kind of dig it, I want to run the company myself, what happened?
