MechCan Inc. (“MechCan”) is pleased to announce its acquisition of JD Swallow Heating and Cooling (“JDS”). Serving Ottawa, Ontario and surrounding areas for more than 50 years, JDS is well-known for the quality of its work designing, installing and servicing heating and air conditioning systems. This marks MechCan’s fifth transaction since its launch in January 2022 and its first in Eastern Ontario. MechCan was founded to enable owner-operators of HVAC, plumbing and electrical contractors across Canada to realize the value in their business while preserving their legacy and best positioning their business for sustainable growth. 

“As a proudly Canadian company, MechCan is pleased to establish a presence in our nation’s capital and expand our footprint across Ontario,” said Spencer Ross, Co-Founder of MechCan.“JD Swallow Heating and Cooling fits well in the MechCan family of brands because its team prioritizes customer satisfaction above all else, evidenced by the Company’s hundreds of five-star reviews. MechCan is honoured that Steve and Trudy Quinn have entrusted us to preserve the legacy of their family business.” 

“Since my father-in-law, Don Swallow, started the business in the late 1960s, JD Swallow Heating and Cooling has been proudly serving the Ottawa community, ensuring the comfort of thousands of Ottawa homeowners and businesses,” said Steve Quinn, JDS’s Owner-Operator. “We decided to partner with MechCan because it enabled us to realize the value of our business while ensuring that our customers and employees would continue to be treated like family.” 

JD Swallow Heating and Cooling will continue to operate under its local brand and retain its top-notch team of technicians and support staff, who provide furnace and air conditioning installation, repairs and maintenance to their local community. The Company’s certified tradespeople are available 24/7 to help customers in case of an emergency. JDS also specializes in environmentally friendly solutions, like heat-pumps, as well as indoor air quality, duct cleaning, and water heaters. To ensure a seamless transition, Steve Quinn will remain with the business after closing as its CEO (Chief Encouragement Officer).
