The Flynn Group of Companies and AARA Construction Inc. announced they have signed a Letter of Intent to combine their operations in Phoenix.

AARA has over 40 employees and a reputation in architectural metals based on its strong culture and ability to execute complex construction projects.

AARA is led by its president, Jerry Spores, who has been a part of strategically growing AARA over the last 40 years. Working closely with Onnie Diaz, Flynn’s Phoenix branch leader, Spores' strategic and “people first” leadership style will be key to Flynn’s organic growth plans in the region.

“We are excited to embrace this opportunity. Merging with Flynn allows for us to match the demand for the growth in the Arizona market. We foresee amazing achievements to be had within the industry,” said Spores.

With offices across North America, Flynn will now have upwards of 5,500 employees.

“We are very excited to welcome the entire AARA team to the Flynn Family,” said Doug Flynn, president and CEO of Flynn Group of Companies. “The level of talent at AARA is impressive, and we look forward to a very bright future as we move closer to offering the total building envelope solution in the Phoenix marketplace.”
