An affiliate of Angeles Equity Partners, LLC, a private investment firm that partners with niche manufacturing, announced last Thursday it had acquired O’Hara’s Son Roofing, a national commercial and industrial roofing provider headquartered in Chicago with regional service operations centers in Florida, New Jersey, and Texas. 

Established in 1987, OSR was ranked No. 17 on Roofing Contractor’s 2023 Top 100 list and is registered and licensed in 48 states.

“We have been actively seeking our next scaled platform that can benefit from Angeles’ deep expertise and past track record within building services,” Sam Heischuber, managing director at Angeles Equity Partners, said in a May 30 news release. 

“OSR presented a compelling opportunity in a highly fragmented industry to acquire one of the largest providers of commercial roofing services participating in all phases of the roofing life cycle; we are excited to partner with OSR’s leadership team and support their continued success,” he added.

Angeles Equity said its investment in OSR originated from its “thematic investment focus” on “differentiated building service” providers, adding that it believes OSR is well positioned to capitalize on the continued build-out of the domestic manufacturing economy as one of the few national players of scale. 

Angeles said it has partnered with OSR CEO Luke Coleman to grow the business while continuing to provide high-quality service, materials, and workmanship. Coleman will continue to lead the business alongside the existing management team as they build on OSR’s 37-year reputation as one of the nation’s largest commercial roofing companies. 

“Finding a partner who fully embraced our value proposition, customer-first approach to the market, and the tremendous opportunity we see across the roofing life cycle was paramount; we are thrilled to have found that within Angeles,” said Coleman. 

“Working together, we will add to our capabilities while rapidly expanding our services and maintenance offerings alongside our customers' nationwide re-roofing and new construction needs,” he added.

Simpson Thacher & Bartlett LLP served as legal counsel to Angeles Equity Partners, LLC. Citizens M&A Advisory and Lincoln International LLC served as buy-side financial co-advisors. Autobahn Consultants served as seller’s advisor. 

Terms of the deal were not disclosed.
