Crete United Opens Headquarters in Charlotte

Leading energy efficiency and mechanical services company operating out of Lower South End offices

Charlotte, N.C. (June 03, 2024) – Crete United, a leading provider of energy efficiency and mechanical, electrical and plumbing services, announced today the opening of its corporate headquarters in Charlotte, N.C. The new space marks another step forward in the company’s rapid growth strategy, following approximately 40% revenue growth in 2023, the recent unveiling of its new brand identity, as well as the acquisition of ProStar Energy Solutions, a leading provider of energy efficiency and sustainability advisory solutions. The company will maintain its location in Tampa, Fla. as its Southeast regional office and plans to establish additional regional offices in Dallas and Seattle later this year.


“Not only is North Carolina home to a number of Crete United partner companies, Charlotte is also one of the country’s fastest-growing metropolitan areas, with a business environment that will help support our growth,” said Crete United CEO Mike Cox. “Charlotte’s recent multi-million dollar investments in creating sustainable buildings and infrastructure, high rankings as part of America’s top state for business, diverse talent pool and proximity to high-value future growth markets are among the many reasons we’re excited to plant our roots here.”


The 10,000 square foot headquarters space is located in the heart of Charlotte’s Lower South End neighborhood at The Station at LoSo, a 15-acre mixed-use development with direct access to the Scaleybark light rail station and positioned within 10 minutes of Uptown Charlotte, I-77 and the South Park neighborhood. The space is LEED Silver certified and received a two-star Fitwel rating, complementing Crete United’s own commitment to creating healthier, friendlier buildings and staying at the forefront of energy efficiency.


Crete United is comprised of a network of more than 40 partner companies and more than 4,000 employees that together serve all 50 states. Charlotte-based Ridgemont Equity Partners provided growth capital to the company in 2022, alongside the founders and management, and continues to support Crete United’s acquisition program and integration process.
