Pro-Tec Plumbing & Air has expanded its service area to include Babcock Ranch after establishing an office in the thriving Charlotte County community.
Pro-Tec serves residential and commercial customers in Collier, Lee and Charlotte counties through its two distinct divisions. The company’s plumbing service division installs and repairs toilets, plumbing fixtures, water heaters, garbage disposals and water filtration systems, and technicians also provide leak detection, repiping, drain cleaning and sewer inspections. The heating, ventilation and air conditioning (HVAC) service division offers diagnostics and system repairs, as well as installations of condensers, air handling units, thermostats and ductwork.
“Babcock Ranch is among Southwest Florida’s fastest-growing residential communities, but its commercial and business growth has not kept pace,” said Pro-Tec President and Co-Owner Rick Hume, Jr. “Sustainability is a core principle of Babcock Ranch, and to truly become self-sufficient, the town needs more businesses to establish their roots there. Pro-Tec is excited to launch our latest expansion in Babcock Ranch.”
Pro-Tec was founded in 2008 in Naples, and for its first decade, the company predominantly served customers in Collier County. After gradually moving into Bonita Springs and Estero, Pro-Tec launched a Fort Myers office in 2021 to serve residents and businesses in Fort Myers, Cape Coral and Lehigh Acres. A progression into Charlotte County was next.
“Our company is thriving because of referrals and word-of-mouth, and customers seem to appreciate our Pro-Tec Promise – quality work, superior service and honest pricing,” said Vice President and Co-Owner Brandon Hume. “Many residents of Babcock Ranch are new to Southwest Florida, and it can be difficult finding trustworthy contractors and trade workers. We are looking forward to becoming Babcock Ranch’s preferred contractor for plumbing and HVAC services.”
The new office is located at 42881 Lake Babcock Drive, Suite 200, in Babcock Ranch. Heading Charlotte County operations is Maurizio Esposito, an HVAC technician with over 20 years of experience diagnosing, repairing and maintaining commercial and residential HVAC systems.
