We warmly welcome the Action A/C team and customers to the rapidly growing NearU family. I also welcome Brian Amodio to NearU’s regional leadership team.

NearU is fully equipped and very well positioned for rapid national expansion and our partnership with Action A/C demonstrates that." Ashish Achlerkar, NearU's Founder & CEO

“Action A/C was established in 1975 with the goal of being one of the best home services companies in San Diego County, built on a foundation of honesty, trust, and highly trained technicians. Since joining in 2010 and owning the business since 2015, I am so proud to have continued that tradition and built one of the best home services companies for employees and customers alike. I am highly confident that the NearU team will continue to build upon the legacy of Action A/C and take the company to even greater heights. NearU’s unique vision, integrity, approach, and focus on employee and customer experience made them the best transition partner for our business. I could not be more excited about the future of Action as we join the NearU family. I am personally excited to join the NearU family as Regional General Manager and look forward to bringing NearU’s full value proposition to the very valuable Action team, and all our customers," said Brian Amodio, President & CEO of Action A/C.

Under NearU's ownership, the Action A/C team will continue to operate under their current, reputed local brand.
