HARTFORD, Conn.--()--FM Facility Maintenance, a Hartford-based leading provider of outsourced facility maintenance services, today announced that it has acquired the assets and certain liabilities of US Signs, Inc. US Signs is a national leader in providing brand application management for clients with multisite retail locations in the United States. With this acquisition, FM Facility Maintenance strengthens its position as a service provider of facility maintenance services to customers with a national footprint.
“This strategic acquisition cements our position as a leader in facilities management services”
“The symmetries between US Signs and FM Facility Maintenance are many but I believe it is our shared commitment to excellence and superior service delivery that will make this a solid enterprise,” said Jim Reavey, President and CEO of FM Facility Maintenance. “US Signs expertise in sign services is impeccable and industry-leading. We look for US Signs to expand FM Facility Maintenance’s value proposition to customers and suppliers in both the sign and integrated facilities management services markets.”
US Signs was founded in 1980 by Ronald Farmer in Houston, Texas, as a traditional full-service sign company. In 1987, US Signs changed its business model to a provider of outsourced fabrication, installation and repairs and maintenance services. US Signs launched its US-1 division in January 2006 as a way to maximize recurring revenue opportunities by formalizing its service efforts.
Lee Clark, President and CEO of US Signs, will stay on as President and CEO of the US Signs division at FM Facility Maintenance. “We are very proud that FM Facility Maintenance recognizes the quality and value of the services US Signs provides to its customers. We look forward to working in partnership with our new owners to grow the signs business.”
