Dan Thompson, owner of Huff-n-Puff, cites opportunity to expand territory as well as work with a long-time friend as the impetus behind the merger.
North Aurora, Ill. – October 27, 2014 – Since 2008, Dan Thompson has worked keeping fitness equipment in good repair throughout the Chicago area through his business Huff-n-Puff Fitness Repair®. Jason Wood has been doing the same in the Milwaukee and Madison areas since 2006 through his business J & K Fitness Repair.
Now the longtime friends are joining forces. With a merger finalized today, Huff-n-Puff Fitness Repair expands their territory, and gains a valuable employee. Although Huff-n-Puff acquired the assets of J & K Fitness Repair, Wood will continue to work as the general manager of the expanded business. Thompson becomes president and chief executive officer.
“Being longtime friends both personally and professionally, Jason and I have wanted to combine our efforts for years,” Thompson stated. “A few months ago we had the opportunity to finally merge and are looking forward to being able to provide the absolute best service experience in the Chicago, Milwaukee and Madison markets.
“By joining forces we will be able to exceed our customers’ expectations exponentially more than we previously did working individually.”
Wood echoed Thompson’s sentiments.
“During our long friendship, Dan and I have always worked as a great team,” added Wood. “We look forward to being the best fitness repair company in the Midwest.”
Huff-n-Puff Fitness Repair provides full-service repairs and preventative maintenance for all types of fitness equipment. The company offers bonded and insured service to homeowners, commercial gyms, schools, hotels, sports teams, and police and fire departments.
Additionally, Huff-n-Puff Fitness Repair is working on proprietary software for scheduling, invoice creation and parts ordering. Once finished, even faster response times will be possible, according to Thompson. “Since Huff-n-Puff’s inception, our goal has been to provide exceptional service as quickly as possible,” expressed Thompson. “This expansion, plus the new software, will only enhance our capabilities. We’re combining the speed and power of a large corporation with the personalization of a small company.”
