Omnia Exterior Solutions, a newly formed portfolio company of CCMP Growth Advisors, LP, announced on June 1 the launch of its platform as a national provider of residential roofing solutions and exterior remodeling services. 

In a news release, the company said its first strategic partnership would be with Hoffman Weber Construction, based in Minneapolis, Minn. Hoffman Weber is a two-generation, family-owned firm specializing in roofing, exterior design-build remodeling and restoration services. 

Founded in 1992 by John Weber, in 2003, Joe Hoffman joined the company as a partner, and the company was renamed Hoffman Weber. In the last 20 years, the company has become a cutting-edge contractor in its market. 

Omnia Exterior Solutions said it was created to address “…a gap in the residential roofing industry through exclusive partners who are local and regional leaders in their respective markets.” The company plans to provide partner organizations with administrative support, digital tools and other resources to grow their businesses.

CCMP, with investments in leading brands like Hayward and Generac, said industry veteran Jim Ziminski would lead Omnia Exterior Solutions to support and grow high-potential residential roofing and remodeling businesses as each joins the new consortium.

Previously, he ran various businesses for the Crane Group, including residential roofing service brands ABLE Roofing and Mr. Roof. Additionally, Ziminski ran the Exterior Portfolio siding brand, which he then shepherded through a successful sale to Westlake Royal Building Products.

"Hoffman Weber is the perfect example of a like-minded business owner who shares our values and is committed to building the Omnia Exterior Solutions platform, which collectively benefits all our partners, their customers and their teams," said Ziminski. "We want to partner with curious, life-long learners who are willing to adapt to the changing marketplace, embrace best practices and evolve their businesses … in a way that positions them for broader success.”

Details of the partnership include Hoffman Weber retaining its company name and local teams; it will operate as part of the Omnia Exterior Solutions platform with additional administrative, operational and marketing resources. 

Hoffman will also join the board of Omnia Exterior Solutions and maintain a leadership position with Hoffman Weber. Moreover, Hoffman will be part of the newly formed Omnia Legacy Builder Council, which will focus on collaborating and sharing best practices across all Omnia partner companies.

"Omnia Exterior Solutions shares our commitment to building a culture of collaboration and continuous improvement as a strategic foundation of success," Hoffman said. "We're incredibly excited to join the platform because we see a tremendous opportunity to accelerate our growth and expand into new markets.”

Mark McFadden, a co-managing partner at CCMP, is bullish about the launch of Omnia Exterior and its pick of Ziminski to lead the new concern.

"Homeowners are looking for professional service providers who can manage all of their exterior repair and remodeling needs,” McFadden said in a statement. “For high-quality businesses like Hoffman Weber, partnering with the Omnia platform creates a win-win opportunity to expand their business to meet consumer needs with additional services, reach and resources.”
