One of the things that make LaGrange and Troup County so special is the business partnerships and the strength of the local economy. In recent years and in large parts due to the LaGrange/Troup County Chamber of Commerce, our local business scene has grown exponentially. In fact, LaGrange as a whole is set to hit records in 2018 for growth, development, and community involvement. It is a crucial time in our story and it seems that almost every week or so, Troup County produces another local success. Such was the case this past Wednesday afternoon, January 24th, as Jackson Heating and Air unveiled their new name, new logo, and various new products and services that they will soon be offering.
Many people gathered around the newly re-designed trucks and the huge new sign out front. Many Chamber dignitaries and leaders in the community were on hand for the special occasion. The staff at Jackson pulled the curtain and unveiled the new sign, officially recognizing that Jackson Heating and Air is now officially Jackson Services, a company with a new vision and many new additions that the team is steadily working on. With this new name and new products, a new logo was also unveiled. The group made their way back to the on site tent for a special program where the team at Jackson announced all of the new services that will be offered.
The first thing that Dale and Ben Jackson, co-owners of Jackson Services, were able to show off at their meeting that afternoon was the plans for their redesigned office, with an exterior set to match the new Great Wolf Lodge that lies a little further down the road on Whitesville Road. The duo then moved into the actual new service that they would be providing. Recently, Jackson acquired another local company, Beall’s Plumbing, and will now be offering their own plumbing services. There are other new services as well including Jackson Mechanics that will work with the industrial entities in the community and Jackson Home Automation where the team will deal with video cameras, door locks, garage door controls, and even thermostat controls.
Another huge game changing announcement for Jackson Services was the addition of their new phone app, the only HVAC dealer in the state to offer this service. From the app, you will be able to book a service call, select different household items on the app and take photos of what the issue is, and get responses from the team. In addition, the team will be able to send out text alerts to let you know when their techs are on their way to your home. You will even be able to pay via the app and give the team a great star rating.
These new changes to Jackson Services are truly groundbreaking for La-Grange and Troup County and signal some significant changes in what a local business model can look like. Jackson is also dedicated to helping the county and the community as a whole by beginning the beautification process of the Whitesville corridor, serving as a standard bearer for the community as we move into a better tomorrow. Things are headed in the right direction for the new Jackson Services and for our community as a whole.
