FORT MYERS — Beck Cos., a diversified construction and home services firm, has acquired Modern Services, a home service contractor with locations in Fort Myers and Venice.

Terms of the deal weren’t disclosed.

Established in 1965, Modern Services specializes in air conditioning, plumbing, electrical repair and service, and serves nine counties along Florida’s Gulf Coast, including Collier, Lee, Charlotte, Sarasota and Manatee, according to a statement. Modern Services, formerly an Elliott-Lewis Company, will operate under its existing name as a division of Beck Cos. With the increase of 40 additional trucks on the road, the acquisition complements the firm’s portfolio offering, the release adds.

“We are pleased to have Modern Services as part of the Beck team,” says Derek Beck, owner of Beck Cos., in the statement. “The addition of this talented group of professionals allows us to provide enhanced services and reinforces our commitment to better serve our customers throughout Southwest Florida and beyond.”

Headquartered in Fort Myers with a satellite office in LaBelle, Beck Cos. specializes in commercial and residential construction, air-conditioning and heating (HVAC), plumbing, electrical, roofing and real estate services. Founded in 2003, the company has served clients throughout Hendry, Glades, Lee, Charlotte, Collier, Highlands and DeSoto counties.
