GrowFL has named Pro-Tec Plumbing & Air as a finalist in its 2023 Companies to Watch program, which celebrates high-performing, second-stage companies headquartered in Florida that demonstrate innovative business strategies and high growth potential.
Founded in 2008 by brothers Richard and Brandon Hume, Pro-Tec is a premier, full-service water and HVAC systems organization serving residential and commercial customers in Collier, Lee and Charlotte counties.
The Naples-based company specializes in new construction and large special projects, with services that include leak detection, repiping, drain cleaning, sewer inspections, water heater installation and a full slate of air-conditioning service, installation and repair options.
Pro-Tec Plumbing & Air is the only Collier County honoree among the 70-plus GrowFL finalists.
“The companies selected as finalists are a testament to the resilience and creativity of Florida’s entrepreneurs,” said Jennifer Taylor, president and CEO of GrowFL. “They are thriving in an ever-changing business landscape, and their accomplishments inspire others to strive for excellence.”
“Being named a GrowFL Companies to Watch finalist is a testament to both our dedicated, hardworking employees and our legions of satisfied customers across Southwest Florida,” said Pro-Tec President Richard Hume. “We are particularly honored to be the sole finalist representing Collier County, our home from Day One.”
“That’s also the day we started offering our ‘Pro-Tec Promise’ to provide quality plumbing and superior service with honest pricing,” added Vice President Brandon Hume. “Our growth is a direct result of that promise. For contractors, it’s all about establishing and maintaining your reputation as a trustworthy, ethical business.”
Developed by the Edward Lowe Foundation, GrowFL’s Companies to Watch program honors second-stage companies that are developing valuable products and services, creating quality jobs, enriching communities and broadening new industries throughout Florida. GrowFL defines second-stage companies as those with six to 150 full-time employees that report $750,000 to $100 million in annual revenue in 2022.
Now in its 13th year, GrowFL has celebrated the accomplishments of 600 Florida entrepreneurs, business owners and their teams. From an initial group of more than 550 nominees, GrowFL will announce 50 winners in October and celebrate honorees during a gala in February.
