Charlotte, NC, May 24, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- NearU Services ("NearU"), a founder-led premier home services platform, today announced its partnership with Bullman Heating & Air ("Bullman" or the “Company”), a leading HVAC services provider located in Asheville, North Carolina. The partnership with Bullman—coupled with NearU’s May 2021 partnership with Mountain Air Mechanical Contractors—will boost NearU’s service capabilities in the rapidly-growing Asheville area.

"Bullman Heating & Air is one of the leading HVAC services providers in Asheville. For nearly thirty years, the Bullman family has worked relentlessly: building a world-class business on the twin pillars of premium customer service and employee empowerment.

The talented Bullman team will be a wonderful addition to the NearU family of companies, and we look forward to building upon the great legacy that Joey, Jennifer, and Branson have built.” Ashish Achlerkar, NearU Founder & CEO

“Since we first opened our doors in 1993, Bullman Heating & Air has remained intensely focused on providing our loyal customers with the best-possible level of service. Our formula for success is simple: good, family-based values; employee wellbeing; an innovative mindset; and commitment to quality. In our conversations with Ashish, it was abundantly clear that he and the entire NearU team operate with this same formula. Their unique vision for the home services industry, collaborative culture, and proven track record makes us supremely confident in their ability to deliver an exceptional experience for Bullman’s customers and employees,” said Jennifer Jones, Former Owner of Bullman Heating & Air.

Under NearU's ownership, the Bullman team will continue to operate under their current, reputed local brand.
