HomeServe complements its map of France with the acquisition of Angevin JCM Confort. The latter, founded in 2005 by Jerome Marie, specializes in the installation of heat pumps in aerodynamic and geothermal energy. It employs 63 people for a turnover of 11.3 million euros. It has installed nearly 1,000 heat pumps this year, making it an Anjou record player in the field.
Target: 30 locations in France
So she joined HomeServe Energes Services, the heating and air conditioning division of HomeServe. Also as an expert in heat pumps, air thermal and geothermal energy, HomeServe Energies Services pursues an external growth strategy targeting “long-standing companies, recognized locally for the quality of their services”. By bringing together eleven companies, it has a turnover of nearly €50 million and is targeting 30 locations in the region by 2025.
With the support of its new group, JCM Confort aims to continue its development outside its historic territory, Anjou, to approach the neighboring departments: Mayenne, Sarthe, Loire-Atlantique, Vendée, Ille-et-Vilaine and Indre-et-Loire. This will require an increased workforce. To counteract the scarcity of manpower, which also affects this profession, JCM Confort relies on training four young men in apprenticeships and four in vocational retraining. “We recruit an average of one person every two months,” explains Jerome Marie.
Overall, HomeServe has a presence in eight countries. This group claims a leading position in home and business repair. Founded in 1993 in the UK by Richard Harbin, it claims the invention is the first dedicated home breakdown assistance service. Approximately 1.2 million households call on 4,000 professionals in their network.
