Omnia Exterior Solutions, a portfolio concern that burst onto the scene last June, announced its third acquisition in an August 29 news release announcing it had entered a partnership with a Rapid City, S.D.-based Black Hills Exteriors, a roofing and exteriors company. 

“We are thrilled to partner with Black Hills Exteriors as this company is one of the most innovative and progressive in the roofing industry today,” said Jim Ziminski, Omnia’s chairman. “In addition to exhibiting impressive, forward-thinking business savvy, the goals and values of Black Hills Exteriors closely align with our goals and values at Omnia Exterior Solutions.

Omina Exterior Solutions entered the roofing space mid-year after announcing the acquisition of longtime roofing concern Hoffman Weber of Minneapolis, followed by Brothers Services in Baltimore, Md.  

Omnia described Black Hills as an award-winning, top-tier roofing contractor recognized nationwide and part of the Exterior Contractor Alliance. The firm provides services, including insurance claims, residential roofing, commercial roofing, siding, windows and doors, and seamless gutters. Based in Rapid City, the company serves a broad area of South Dakota and neighboring states.

"I am thrilled beyond words that Black Hills Exteriors is joining Omnia Exterior Solutions in partnership,” said Chad Enger, principal of Black Hills Exteriors. “This partnership represents an incredible opportunity for growth in our industry, surrounded by like-minded individuals who share our vision and passion for bettering the roofing business.”

In the past year, Black Hills opened two new locations in South Dakota, including Spearfish and Hot Springs. Omnia reported that Black Hills also plans to open a Wyoming branch, which will be the first expansion under the portfolio’s auspices. 

“Our partnership with Omnia allows us to make a stronger commitment to our local businesses as we continue to expand our presence in both South Dakota and Wyoming,” said Trevor Schmidt, COO of Black Hills Exteriors. “We are excited to work with Omnia to grow our services, both within our current footprint and additional new locations in Wyoming this coming year.”
