On Side Restoration Acquires STRONE

Oakville, ONTARIO – On Side Restoration grows again in Ontario with the acquisition of STRONE.

Craig Hogarth, President and CEO, On Side Restoration shared that “We’re very pleased to announce that as of this week, On Side has reached an agreement to acquire STRONE Restoration. We’ve been seeking to make a greater impact on our Ontario footprint versus just green fielding as we have been over this past year. By having the STRONE team join forces with our staff, On Side is well on its way to becoming even stronger in this Eastern market. Our customers are demanding a larger national presence so this is a very positive next step for us. Growing branches in other provinces, such as in the Atlantic, are on the horizon as well.”

Amandio Contreiras, COO, On Side Restoration, also commented that “In alignment with our strategic growth strategy, On Side’s purchase of STRONE couldn’t have come at a better time. On Side has always had a good relationship with STRONE and it is fitting that we complete this year with our two companies coming together.”

“Our family is proud of the path we have taken for 32 years with STRONE,” reflects Neil Blinco, Co-CEO Marketing and Sales at STRONE. “Since our original office on Ingelhart Street in Oakville, Ontario, we have experienced highs and lows, catastrophic weather events, growth, acquisitions, and everyday challenges that entrepreneurs face. We are grateful for our employees, some of whom have passed on and are dearly missed. It is because of their dedication and commitment to our business that have helped STRONE grow into the respected company it is today. While the property restoration industry has changed over time, one thing has not – the care and compassion of our employees who continue to assist home and business owners during their most challenging times. On Side is a company that holds the same values as our own. We feel fortunate to pass along our team’s hard work to a company that conducts itself with the same care and integrity. This transition over the next several months to a year will be a change for all of us, but one we are pleased to be a part of.”

As On Side continues to grow, we’re also on the lookout for quality employees.
