First Onsite Property Restoration, one of North America's largest disaster recovery and restoration providers for commercial enterprises, has acquired All Restoration Solutions [ARS]. This acquisition is part of First Onsite's approach to expand on critical services and timely responses. The financial terms of the acquisition are not being disclosed.

With three locations in Georgia and one in South Carolina, ARS is a restoration company with expertise in reconstruction, mitigation, capital improvement, and roofing. The majority of its work is done in the commercial space.

ARS serves a portfolio of multi-family complexes and other commercial buildings, including healthcare facilities. A significant sector of work performed is for major universities and related student housing.

"The addition of ARS' locations to our national footprint complements our existing presence in Atlanta, one of the largest cities in the U.S. This step enables us to advance our competitive position and gain incremental market share in this high-priority region," said Jeff Johnson, Global CEO of First Onsite. "We believe the dynamic team ARS brings to the table is particularly attractive because of the strong leadership which has proven to be like-minded with our culture in both purpose and values."

With the acquisition of ARS, First Onsite said in a news release it has "enhanced the already exceptional customer service it provides" to Atlanta and the surrounding metropolitan area. The reach of its services has increased exponentially, creating opportunities to serve a larger segment of clients in Georgia and the Southeast region.

"We see this acquisition as a win-win for everyone involved," said Roger Morlan, who, along with his business partner, Bart Black, leads ARS's day-to-day operations. "First Onsite, in addition to its local presence, has a national network of resources that will enable us to take our services to the next step for our clients." 

First Onsite, which operates in the U.S. and Canada, is a subsidiary of FirstService Corporation and represents the second-largest independent North American restoration and reconstruction services provider for commercial enterprises. The agreement with ARS is the latest in a series that expands First Onsite's capabilities and resources across North America.
