Great question. Sila is focused on building the best home services operating company, not just being the biggest or a financial engineering play. We were founded by tradespeople and run by tradespeople today, with our key leaders averaging more than a dozen years of HVAC, Plumbing and Electrical experience. Partnering only with well run teams that share similar values and long-term goals allows us to continually reinvest in our people, our capabilities and our growth. Sila’s unique geographic focus helps to build scale, expertise and customer service excellence in specific markets. We bring unmatched and well-proven best practices backed by exceptional support resources, however when and how we deploy these capabilities is done in full collaboration with our business leaders. Our commitment is to have former owners be able to say after joining Sila, “I still feel like I own and run the business, it’s just easier to do and more successful than I could have done it on my own.” That’s the type of company we are and how we are building something different for our industry.
We invest in high quality, well-established teams that provide a mix of HVAC, Electrical, and Plumbing services in the Northeast, Mid-Atlantic, and Midwest.
Our dozens of partner companies serve customers in the Northeast, Mid-Atlantic, and Midwest regions of the United States. While Sila Services has its Shared Services Centers of Excellence in the Philadelphia suburbs, we spend much of our time in the field supporting our teams.
Our evaluation process combines financial analysis, market research, and industry benchmarks to determine the value of a business.
