Smart Care Equipment Solutions announced the acquisition of Advanced Mechanical Plus, a provider of commercial foodservice equipment and HVAC services.

Smart Care, headquartered in St. Paul, Minn., provides commercial kitchen equipment repair and maintenance services to the U.S. commercial food industry. It services more than 40,000 locations throughout the country. The Advanced Mechanical Plus acquisition reflects Smart Care’s strategy of buying service companies and expanding heavily in the Midwest. With its fifth acquisition, Smart Care aims to establish itself as one of the largest commercial kitchen equipment service providers in the country.

“From the very beginning, when we first started AMP, we always wanted to be the best service company our customers could choose and the best place for our employees to work,” said Kyle Wiechart, former owner of AMP. “After spending some time with the Smart Care team, I became convinced that by partnering with them, AMP would become an even better company for both our customers and our employees.”
