First Onsite Property Restoration, one of North America’s largest disaster recovery and restoration providers for commercial enterprises, has acquired Pro Construction LLC d/b/a Complete DKI and 1-800 Packouts of the Gulf Coast LLC (collectively, “Complete DKI”), a Florida-based emergency response and restoration services provider. The acquisition is part of First Onsite’s expansion strategy with a goal to attain operational excellence for clients by focusing on geographical expansion and timely response.

“We are looking forward to working with the Complete DKI leadership and welcoming all the team members to First Onsite. Their depth of experience in the Florida Panhandle, combined with our national scope, allows us to expand our capability and services to area-wide catastrophic events along the Gulf Coast for our clients," said Stacy Mazur, First Onsite CEO, U.S.

By acquiring Complete DKI, First Onsite expands its geographical presence in the Florida Gulf Coast region positioning the firm to better respond to hurricanes and other catastrophic events. This addition gives First Onsite coverage throughout the state of Florida, a high-priority region for the company, and increases its daily operational capabilities to handle its clients’ needs both locally and nationally.

Complete DKI is a leading restoration contractor with offices in the Pensacola, Fla., Tallahassee, Fla. and Mobile, Ala. areas. They have many years of experience in disaster restoration and are leaders in the Florida Panhandle. Complete DKI provides restoration services to commercial, insurance, and residential clients. Additionally, First Onsite will expand relationships with Complete DKI’s existing clients and will serve them in regions beyond their current locations.

“With our strong customer base, this partnership allows us to put more boots on the ground and provide daily support for our clients. Our team’s experience and knowledge of CAT event response in the Gulf Coast and Panhandle region will grow even stronger with First Onsite. We are a service-driven organization and that’s why partnering with First Onsite will provide even greater opportunities for our team’s ability to better serve our clients at home and throughout North America,” noted Shaun Carpentier, Complete DKI President.

First Onsite, which operates in the U.S. and Canada, is a subsidiary of FirstService Corporation (NASDAQ: FSV, TSX: FSV) and represents the second-largest independent North American restoration and reconstruction services provider for commercial enterprises. This acquisition is the latest in a series that expands First Onsite’s capabilities and resources across North America. The financial terms of the Complete DKI acquisition are not being disclosed.

“This acquisition continues to build on our Promise to be the only partner you’ll ever need. This strategic location expands our daily geographical footprint and enhances our presence in coastal storm-prone markets,” said Rene Vargas, First Onsite Regional Vice President, Southeast U.S. and Caribbean.
