Malvern, PA (PRWEB) May 23, 2012
ExerTech ™, a leading exercise equipment service company based in Malvern, Pa., announced today that ExtraMile, Inc., a Wilmington, Del.-based company has purchased the rights to four ExerTech franchises. ExtraMile becomes the first franchisee of ExerTech, which announced plans to franchise its business in March.
Gabe Forest, president and CEO of Extra Mile and a Wilmington resident, acquired ExerTech franchise rights to Newark, Del., Camden and Gloucester Counties in New Jersey, and Bucks County in Pennsylvania.
“This is a dream come true,” Forest commented. “I have worked hard to become an expert in the exercise equipment service industry and do the best possible job to serve customers. Now to have an opportunity to own a franchise and follow the successful ExerTech blueprint is unbelievable.”
ExtraMile, Inc., dba ExerTech, will be based in Wilmington and will provide commercial and residential exercise equipment service and repair.
Forest has already hired and trained at least one local technician in each county who will be solely responsible for servicing customers in that territory.
“It will be important to have local technicians who live in and know their communities,” Forest added. “Not only will this reduce repair turn-around time, but the customers will get to know the technician on a personal level.”
ExerTech offers health clubs, schools, colleges, apartments, condominiums, physical therapy clinics/hospitals, hotels, government facilities and in-home clients the ability to keep their exercise equipment as fit as the people who use it.
“Our customers choose us because they are tired of dealing with small, disorganized service companies, retail outlets that sell but don’t service equipment, and stores that can service only what they sell,” said Don Powers, President and CEO of ExerTech.
ExerTech has relationships with over 40 major manufacturers; therefore, many major manufacturers send ExerTech contract work orders on a daily basis. ExerTech provides the proven systems, tools and processes to enable its franchisees to provide consistent exceptional customer service to more residential and commercial customers than ever before.
Forest has 15 years’ experience in the service industry and graduated from Liberty University in Lynchburg, Virginia.
