Elite Construction Solutions (ECS), an integrity-driven contractor, specializing in storm restoration and mitigation, recently acquired Universal Roofing & Exteriors and Jackson Contracting. The acquisition immediately expands ECS’s footprint into the Indiana market where it will offer best-in-class exterior general contracting services. Furthermore, via the Jackson Contracting acquisition Elite will now expand into custom metal roofing and manufacturing – adding complementary capabilities into its core offerings. This acquisition also allows Universal and Jackson to fully leverage ECS’s suite of shared services including its storm restoration training, estimating services, proprietary technology, data analytics and back-office resources.
“I’m glad we found the Elite family. This opportunity will not only provide all our employees with an incredible opportunity to grow in their careers, but also allows Universal to expand our reach and support. Our company cultures blend so well, coming together will allow us to take Universal and Jackson to places we have always dreamed of growing,” said Sam Yeary, Owner of Universal Roofing & Exteriors.
Universal Roofing & Exteriors was created in 1986 by Rob Yeary. He dreamed of creating a family-owned business marked by its honesty, integrity, and commitment to the community in which it operated.
“Universal and Jackson are a natural fit for our growing business. Our objective is to build the nation’s largest, most efficient insurance restoration firm. We partner with like-minded contracting companies who put performance, honesty, quality, and respect for our customer’s property at the forefront of every transaction. In addition to aligning with our mission and core values, acquiring Universal and Jackson helps expand our capabilities into metal and specialty roofing. Now, with Universal & Jackson as part of the Elite Construction Solutions family of brands, we are in an even better position to execute on these goals,” said Mike Braun, President of Elite Construction Solutions.
