Technology-enabled property services provider Kellermeyer Bergensons Services LLC (KBS) of Oceanside, California, has acquired Salt Lake City-based Varsity Facility Services. Varsity is also a facility services company. Varsity will join KBS as an operating division and will continue to utilize the Varsity brand.
Mark Minasian, CEO of KBS, said, “Varsity is an iconic service brand in North America and we are very pleased to warmly welcome Eric Luke and his team into the KBS platform. We want to thank and pay respect to Varsity founder Don Aslett and chairman Arlo Luke, who are pioneers in our industry and whose vision and character were fundamental in shaping Varsity’s unique service culture.”
The combined company now delivers service to more than 41,000 locations in North America, KBS said in a release. “We intend to leverage our enhanced scale, end market exposure and proprietary technology platform to further accelerate value creation, while delivering best-in-class outcomes for our customers, people and sponsors,” Minasian said.
Varsity primarily serves the institutional, education, healthcare, distribution, corporate campus and government markets and will continue KBS’s strategy to serve multi-site customers across end markets, the company said.
“KBS and Varsity have long histories in the facilities services industry and we’ve both enjoyed long-tenured relationships with our customers,” said Eric Luke, CEO and president of Varsity. “We at Varsity are enthusiastic about becoming part of KBS and leveraging its proprietary labor management and service delivery technology to drive additional efficiency and be even more responsive to customers.”
Varsity was established in 1957 and has operations throughout the U.S. Its core services are contract cleaning, building maintenance and construction management.
