“I have spent my entire career building AccuTemp and I am thrilled that AccuTemp will be joining forces with Casteel,” said Jerry McAnally. “Casteel’s core value of ‘Always Do the Right Thing’, aligns perfectly with AccuTemp’s culture.”
Gary Obert further commented, “Horizon strives to be an acquirer of choice, especially in our core markets along the East Coast. We seek to partner with best-in-class companies by being flexible in our acquisition approach and by bringing significant investment to our partner brands post-closing.”
