Harrison Township’s Jarvis Property Restoration will have the chance to go global after being acquired by a Texas company.
BMS CAT, a disaster response company based in Texas, has acquired Jarvis, which has locations in Michigan, Iowa, and Florida. Financial terms were not disclosed.
“By combining their list of locations with ours, we will be able to better service our customers throughout Michigan and Florida, as well as across the nation,” says Bill Jarvis, former owner of the company. “This relationship will add value for our customers, since we have access to more equipment, manpower, and other resources.”
Bill and Matt Jarvis will remain with the company in leadership roles. The company was founded in 1979.
“We are excited about the partnership, as it allows us the ability to merge Jarvis Restoration’s rich history and the positive culture with Blackmon Mooring and BMS CAT,” says Tom Head, president and CEO of Blackmon Mooring and BMS CAT. “By combining teams, we can strengthen our national footprint by adding locations in Michigan and increasing our presence across Florida. More importantly, we will be able to deliver the most dependable service to our clients within our industry.”
The announcement is the second in BMS CAT’s plan of acquisitions to support growth. It acquired North Carolina’s Diamond Restoration in January. BMS CAT has grown from a privately owned company in 1948 to a national restoration company. It was originally opened as a furniture and dye shop and, in 1981, the company expanded its reach globally with the addition of the BMS CAT division.
Jarvis offers fire, mold, and water damage restoration.
