FirstOnSite Restoration Expands in National Capital Region by Agreeing to Acquire JPL Disaster Recovery
We are pleased to announce that we will be strengthening our presence in the National Capital Region by acquiring JPL Disaster Recovery, a company with more than 50 years of experience and expertise in disaster restoration in Gatineau, Ottawa, and the Outaouais region.
This transaction is part of FirstOnSite’s ongoing growth and begins the next phase of our expansion and acquisition plans. It follows FirstService Corporation’s acquisition of FirstOnSite and Interstate Restoration in May and continues the focus on industry leadership, global growth, and the provision of exceptional experiences. FirstOnSite joined forces with U.S.-based Interstate in 2016, creating the second-largest independent restoration provider in North America.
FirstOnSite has committed to growing in the Quebec region, opening branches in Quebec City, Ottawa, and Ste-Agathe, QC over several 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.
JPL Disaster Recovery, the leading full-service restoration provider in Gatineau, QC, was founded in 1966 and employs about 70 people. This acquisition cements FirstOnSite’s presence and leadership in the National Capital Region.
