BluSky Restoration Contractors, LLC, a leading national property restoration company in the U.S., announced a merger with Logan, Utah-based ARS CLEANUP • RESTORE • REBUILD (ARS).

The merged companies will continue as BluSky Restoration Contractors, operating 53 offices in 21 states from coast to coast. In addition to restoration services currently provided by ARS, BluSky plans to add its commercial roofing and healthcare restoration business lines to the Logan, Ogden/Salt Lake City, UT and Rock Springs, WY markets.

“ARS has a long-standing reputation of taking care of their clients and is culturally aligned with BluSky in many ways.” said Drew Bisping, BluSky CEO. “We are excited to grow our BluSky family, and further expand in the Utah and surrounding markets.”

Founded in 1985, privately-owned and operated ARS provides restoration services to commercial, residential, government, and educational institutions in the Utah, Idaho and Wyoming markets. ARS owner Jud Eades plans to step away from day-to-day operations of the merged company. Bisping will continue as CEO of the merged firm.

“...BluSky had the most similar employee culture and plans in place that would take the best care of our team with immediate opportunities for them to grow personally and financially. ARS clients are some of my closest friends. It was important for me to partner with a company that could not only take care of our clients locally like we have for decades, but also expand to take care of them nationally. It was very clear to me and an easy decision to partner with BluSky.” said Eades.

This announcement is the 12th in a strategic plan of mergers and acquisitions in the last six years to support BluSky growth. BluSky has grown from a privately-owned Colorado startup in 2004 to one of the largest national restoration firms in the United States.
