MEMPHIS, Tenn., May 21, 2024 – Redwood Services (“Redwood”), a home services firm focused on investing in leading residential HVAC, plumbing and electrical services companies in growing U.S. markets, today announced it has invested in Dean’s Home Services (“Dean’s”).

Dean’s was founded in 1996 and proudly serves the Minneapolis-St. Paul region with HVAC, plumbing, electrical, sewer and drain services. Today, Dean’s has over 120 teammates and serves more than 10,000 customers annually.

“Dean’s has experienced substantial business growth in recent years, a reflection of their prudent decision-making and adaptability regardless of the business climate,” stated Richard Lewis, CEO of Redwood Services. “Stephanie and Jeremy are exceptionally talented executives, who prioritize treating their employees well – earning a reputation in their community for attracting new hires through strong family connections and word-of-mouth referrals. We are eager to support Dean’s with our full suite of resources as they continue to grow.”
