BluSky Restoration Contractors LLC announced a merger with Waterville, Ohio-based J&R Restoration (J&R).

The merged companies will continue as BluSky Restoration Contractors, operating 62 offices in 26 states from coast to coast. In addition to restoration services currently provided by J&R, BluSky plans to add its commercial roofing and healthcare restoration business lines to the Waterville/Toledo market.

“J&R strategically fills an area between our Detroit and Columbus locations,” said Drew Bisping, BluSky CEO. “We are excited to grow our BluSky family, and further expand in Toledo and surrounding markets.”

Founded in 1962, privately-owned and operated J&R provides restoration services to commercial, residential, and government institutions in the greater Toledo area. J&R owners Mike and Jocelyn Bostdorff will remain involved in the operations of the merged company. Bisping will continue as CEO of the merged firm. 

“J&R Restoration has been known as the leading provider of restoration services in Northwest Ohio & Southeast Michigan for over 60 years," said Mike and Jocelyn in a joint statement. "Our rich tradition of serving people in their time of need is only made possible by the team of people who dedicate their lives to caring for others. BluSky immediately stood out to us at the perfect partner to expand our ability to provide the greatest opportunity for our staff and clients."

The merger is the 14th action in BluSky's plan of mergers and acquisitions in the last six years to support its growth. BluSky has grown from a privately-owned Colorado startup in 2004 to one of the largest national restoration firms in the United States, and was included on the 2023 Top 100 contractors list.
