We can all relate to the moment when a major operating system goes on the fritz, and panic sets in. Brian Stack, president of Stack Heating, Cooling, Plumbing & Electric, understands that angst.
“My parents, Andy and Sandy Stack, founded the business in 1976 out of our home in Lakewood,” says Stack. “My dad became known for his expertise in fixing the steam and hot water heating systems many of the older homes in the area had.”
The business grew through the years and after being headquartered in several locations, the family, which also includes Stack’s two brothers and sister, moved the 68-employee company to Avon in 1997. The full-service firm specializes in HVAC, plumbing and electrical maintenance, repair and replacement in residential and light-commercial buildings.
“My parents built a house in Avon in 1995, and we could see the growth potential the area had,” Stack says. “We looked at the future and knew Avon would be a great spot for our company to grow. It’s also the ideal midway point between Lakewood, Rocky River and points west, where most of our customers are located.”
Stack values the fact that despite the city’s growth, Avon has maintained a small-town ambiance.
“Businesses work together to promote the city and support each other,” he says. “I find the networking opportunities particularly valuable because they are an ideal way to get to know each other, build relationships and exchange ideas.”
