The Longacre Company Announces 100th Anniversary Of Providing Area Residents And Businesses With Renovation, Maintenance And Improvement Services

Published on November 14, 2022

After 100 years, The Longacre Company in Bally, PA – a multi-generational, family-owned business has withstood the test of time, and continues to serve the local community with a broad range of contracting services and a stellar reputation.

Since its humble founding by Arland E. Longacre in 1922 as a small electrical business operating from a shed on the family farm, The Longacre Company has always been attuned to the changing technological landscape, and has adapted and expanded its product and service offerings to meet the needs of its growing customer base. In 2022, The Longacre Company is proud to be celebrating not only its 100th anniversary, but also the diversity of products and services that it offers its customers, including:

  • Electrical Services for residential, commercial, municipal and industrial customers. The Longacre Company will handle any electrical project from replacing a light switch to installing a backup generator to wiring an entire industrial building.
  • Heating and Air Conditioning (HVAC) Services for residential, commercial, municipal and industrial customers. This includes everything from servicing an existing air conditioning system in a family home to retrofitting an older building with climate control to designing and installing a state-of-the-art HVAC system for a manufacturing plant.
  • Plumbing Services for residential, commercial, municipal and industrial customers. The Longacre plumbing team will tackle any plumbing issue or project from a simple faucet replacement to installation of an entire water and sewer system to commercial kitchen and bathroom design.
  • Flooring Installation Services. The Longacre flooring experts help their customers select the most suitable material for the application, whether it be carpet, hardwood, vinyl, ceramic or stone tile, laminate, or composite tile.
  • Kitchen and Bathroom Design. The Longacre Company has a team of designers who specialize in kitchens and baths, as well as a full showroom where their customers can see and feel the products they are considering purchasing for their home renovation project.
  • Commercial Refrigeration.

Despite the long-term success of the family business, the longevity of The Longacre Company was not without significant challenges. Two events in recent history that tested the business include the Great Recession of 2007 to 2009, as well as the Covid-19 pandemic.

Steve Longacre, third generation family owner and Vice President of The Longacre Company credits the company’s diversity of services with its surviving and prospering though those challenging times, when so many other businesses did not. “We’re pretty flexible in our industry, and I am grateful we are so diversified, especially when the recession hit the hardest in 2008. The light commercial work dropped off substantially, so we were able to fall back and focus on our residential customers. We have struggled with inflated material costs, especially with copper pricing and fuel going through the roof. I have 40 trucks on the road, so that’s a huge expense.”

The Longacre Company maintains that same diversity of service offerings today, a testament to the customer-focused business model started 100 years ago by Arland Longacre. The Longacre Company’s goal is to make the business a one-stop shop for their customer service, repair and installation and remodeling needs. “We like to tell the homeowner we do everything but paint,” says Steve.

The Longacre Company is now positioned to continue to provide top-quality products and services well into the future, and Steve credits both customers and employees with the success of the business. “We could not have made it this far without great employees, decades-long loyal customers and our steadfast commitment to always provide quality products and customer service,” he reported. “The Longacre Company’s commitment to quality through the years has stood the test of time when others had come and gone.”

Tom Rutkowski, President of Innovative Retirement Strategies, Interviewed on Podcast-Using Life Insurance to Invest in Real Estate

Published on December 2, 2022

Tom Rutkowski discusses using life insurance for real estate investing.

Questions covered in this interview include:

  1. Why would someone want to use life insurance to invest in real estate?
  2. Does it matter what kind of life insurance?
  3. I have a whole life policy. Could I use it for this?

Listen to the interview on the Business Innovators Radio Network: 

https://businessinnovatorsradio.com/interview-with-tom-rutkowski-president-of-innovative-retirement-strategies-discussing-using-life-insurance-to-invest-in-real-estate/

Tom explained: “Life insurance can benefit real estate investors in various ways. Leveraging the cash value of life insurance allows access to funds that could be used to purchase and maintain investments like rental properties. This allows investors to put their money to work in two places at one time. It’s important to remember that this is not an investment strategy without risk, so investors should weigh the potential rewards versus the risks before taking advantage of this option.”

In addition to leveraging life insurance for purchasing and upkeep of real estate investments, it can also be used as an income replacement tool for dependent family members in case something happens to the investor or their partner. If a life insurance policy has been set up, it replaces some or all of the income that would otherwise have been lost due to the investor’s death. This can help ensure that their family is taken care of and their investments are not affected.

Finally, life insurance policies can provide access to cash value which can be used for tax or retirement planning. Depending on the type of policy and its terms, investors may be able to borrow against the policy’s cash value to pay taxes or other expenses associated with real estate investing.

In conclusion, life insurance provides a flexible financial tool that can potentially benefit real estate investors in multiple ways. Whether it is used as leverage for purchasing properties or providing income replacement for dependent family members in case something happens to the investor, life insurance offers real estate investors an option worth considering when formulating an overall investing strategy.

Before deciding to use life insurance for real estate investing, it’s essential to research and consult with a financial advisor or professional who can provide personalized advice tailored to a person’s individual needs and goals. This will help ensure they make informed decisions that align with their long-term investment objectives. With the right partner, leveraging life insurance can be an effective strategy for creating wealth through real estate investments.

Christian Care Ministry/Medi-Share attends the International Conference on Mission (ICOM)   

Published on November 30, 2022

Christian Care Ministry/Medi-Share, the nation’s leading health care sharing ministry is passionate about the work missionaries do and showed their support at the International Conference On Mission (ICOM).

Christian Care Ministry– The nation’s leading health care sharing ministry’s executives connected with attendees of ICOM. Christian Care Ministry’s vision is to transform society through the Biblical model of sharing. Christian Care Ministry/Medi-Share was honored to connect with missionaries who are doing wonderful work for the Kingdom of God as well as other like-minded organizations that also attended this event.

Medi-Share is a Christian health care solution that missionaries can utilize anywhere as they serve in different capacities around the world. Christian Care Ministry’s ‘Medi-Share Global’ program is designed to give missionaries the health care they need – where they need it! Whether that is in the United States or overseas.

ICOM exists to Encourage, Equip and Enlist workers for the Harvest. The ICOM conference serves as a connection point for global missions. The Medi-Share Global program works great for missionaries, so health care is made easy and one less thing they need worry about while traveling to share the Word of God. 

“I am a Missionary and have worked in the mission field in the US and abroad for over 18 years. I did not have any health issues till this March of 2020. It was a very scary and faith-building experience with 3 ER visits, 2 hospital stays, 2 surgeries, 8 blood transfusions, and recovering from a blood clot in my lung. The bills seemed so large, but I followed what Medi-Share asked me to do to have the hospital submit the bills. I would see shareable portions of bills being paid and checks sent to the Doctors and hospitals and be so thankful every time I would see a portion of the bills paid. GOD MADE A WAY… Through Medi-Share, through Medi-Share members, and through God’s provision, I owe a reasonable doable amount!!! This is a very Christ-centered way of medical cost assistance” – Stephanie

Equipping missionaries is just one-way Christan Care Ministry/ Medi-Share can transform society through the biblical model of sharing and help further the kingdom.
