Thornhill, ON, April 20, 2020 - Great Northern Group of Companies ("GNG"), one of Canada's fastest-growing building services management firms, announced today that it has completed its acquisition of Niagara Commercial Coatings & Insulation ("NCCI"). All existing employees of NCCI will be retained during the transition.
Based in Thornhill, Ontario, GNG continues to quickly expand across Canada with its fourth business acquisition since 2018. Previous acquisitions include Insultech Insulation Specialists, Sloan Insulations, and Ingenium. The company also owns and operates Great Northern Insulation, Barrier Sciences Group, Pull Marketing, and Customer XT. NCCI will operate as A Division of Great Northern Insulation.
"NCCI is the first of our 2020 acquisitions, and we are proud to bring in their numerous years of expertise in the building services industry," said Noah Murad, President of GNG. "We are currently speaking to more than 50 companies, and look forward to seeing continued success from our acquisition strategy. We are currently looking for both new and established companies that have proven themselves in the building industry."
Based in Niagara Falls, Ontario, NCCI is recognized throughout Canada for installing structural steel fireproofing, semi-rigid insulation, rigid insulation, sprayed glass fibre, and spray-applied polyurethane foam. The company's notable projects include the Canadian Museum for Human Rights in Winnipeg, Manitoba, and the Science & Technology Building at Saint Mary's University in Halifax, Nova Scotia.
"As a family-owned business with over four generations of experience, NCCI has provided innovative and cost-effective air barrier and insulation solutions to contractors, drywallers, masons, and architects in the industrial, commercial, and institutional building sectors," said Robert Doerrsam, President of NCCI. "As the newest division of GNG, we can now offer a broader scope of products and services to these sectors in addition to the superior quality of work that we are known for."
Additionally, GNG has secured contracts with two big-box retailers with more than 500 locations combined across Canada. To ensure full delivery of its building services to all of these areas, the company has created the GNG Dealer Network. High Performance Spray Systems, based in Calgary, Alberta, is the first official dealer of the network.
"We are proving that our strategy works," said Jacob Murad, Vice President of GNG. "We are growing, and we are growing quickly. We have ongoing acquisitions, organic growth with our new and existing companies, and are creating a network of dealers to help us deliver our full suite of building services across Canada."
