Share it

We are pleased to announce that we have completed our previously announced agreement to acquire JPL Disaster Recovery, a company with more than 50 years of experience and expertise in disaster restoration in Gatineau, Ottawa, and the Outaouais region. JPL employees are now part of our team, strengthening our service offering in the National Capital Region.

This transaction follows FirstService Corporation’s acquisition of FirstOnSite and Interstate in May and continues our focus on industry leadership, global growth, and the provision of exceptional experiences. FirstOnSite first partnered with U.S.-based Interstate Restoration in 2016, and this transaction begins the next phase of our expansion and acquisition plans for Quebec and nationwide.

“FirstOnSite and Interstate have had the vision to be a global leader in the disaster restoration industry, and this acquisition represents another important milestone for our combined company,” says Dave Demos, CEO, FirstOnSite.

We’ve opened branches in Quebec City, Ottawa, and Ste-Agathe, QC in recent years, complementing our regional flagship Montréal branch. This has helped to make us the largest full service commercial and residential restoration provider in Quebec and the National Capital Region.

“FirstOnSite shares our values and business goals, making this the right decision for our organization,” said Earl Laforest (company owner), VP Operations & Acquisitions – Quebec and National Capital Region, FirstOnSite.
