Ferrandino & Son Acquires Enterprise Signs, Securing an Immediate Presence in the National Sign Industry

 

(Farmingdale, NY – July 15th, 2019) Ferrandino & Son, a leading national facility maintenance company, has acquired Enterprise Signs, a national sign maintenance and installation company.

“Enterprise Signs provides an immediate launching pad for our existing clients who want to expand their relationships with Ferrandino & Son,” said Peter Ferrandino, Ferrandino & Son CEO. “Having the chance to leverage an in-house, full service sign company with more than 30 years of experience will allow us to become a more robust solution for our existing client base.”

Enterprise Signs was as much an acquisition of intellectual capital as it was the client relationships that came with them. “The onboarding of more than 5,000 vendor partner relationships in the signage industry creates an immediate presence for our brand,” said Brandon Ramsey, President of Ferrandino & Son. “This acquisition gives us a seat at the table today with clients looking to partner with a full-service sign company.”

Enterprise Signs will be located in Audubon, PA, approximately 25 miles of Philadelphia, PA. There, they will occupy office space on the campus of Ferrandino & Son’s national operational headquarters, which encompasses nearly 50,000 square feet of office space. They have also transitioned to Ferrandino & Son’s technology platform FAST and have bolted on the national project team, which numbers more than 40 Project Managers across the country.

As an inhouse solution for Ferrandino & Son, Enterprise Signs will bring a specific expertise to the signage space. With a strong background in on-demand and preventative maintenance, their presence across the country with more than 5,000 vendor partners will allow them to be an immediate solution for everything from rebranding and national rollouts to handling large and small mergers and acquisitions along with new construction services.

This announcement follows the acquisition of BlueSky Paving just two weeks ago, further strengthening the Ferrandino & Son brand in the multi-site location facility space.

(Farmingdale, NY – June 27th, 2019) Ferrandino & Son, a leading national facility maintenance company, has acquired BlueSky Paving, a national asphalt and concrete maintenance and installation company.

“BlueSky Paving brings 30 years of asphalt and concrete experience to our overall value proposition to our clients,” said Peter Ferrandino, Ferrandino & Son CEO. “BlueSky will provide our clients with a total pavement solution while the BlueSky Brand will benefit from the existing resources of Ferrandino & Son, including our existing technology platform, our back end support services and more than 40 Project Managers in the field.”

BlueSky Paving was as much an acquisition of intellectual capital as it was the client relationships that came with them. BlueSky Paving will operate as a separate brand within the multi-site facility space. They will partner directly with their own clients but will also function as an in-house solution for existing Ferrandino & Son clients.

“The acquisition was as much about the synergies in the commercial sector that perfectly aligned with our existing client base as it was about on-boarding the key operational knowledge that we knew would bring immediate credibility to the market,” said Brandon Ramsey, President of Ferrandino & Son. “We expect to see significant opportunities both directly through the BlueSky Brand as well as through the existing clients that call Ferrandino & Son a partner today.”

BlueSky Paving will be located within Ferrandino & Son’s campus in Audubon, PA, approximately 25 miles west of Philadelphia, PA. The campus includes two corporate buildings totaling nearly 50,000 square feet of office space.

Ferrandino & Son Names Brandon Ramsey As President To Contribute To The Company’s Growth Strategy

FARMINGDALE, NY — Ferrandino & Son, a leading national facility maintenance company, has named Brandon Ramsey as the company’s President. Ramsey will officially join the company on April 26th.

“Brandon has more than 20 years of experience leading significant growth initiatives in both large and small service organizations,” said Peter Ferrandino, Ferrandino & Son CEO. “A strategic priority across our company is to deliver greater value to our clients in the form of new service offerings and by adding Brandon this will help us achieve these goals.”

In his new role, Ramsey will work closely with leadership providing direction on the day-to-day operations of Ferrandino & Son while assisting in identifying opportunities to improve processes, introduce new programs and develop short- and long-term growth strategies.

Ramsey has been the Director of Field Service for Johnson Controls, Inc. since 2017, managing its $1 billion fire service business with 5,000 employees in over 120 locations.

Employee Morale Boosts Service Delivery

Employee Morale Boosts Service Delivery

employee morale

Employee morale plays part in operational changes at Ferrandino & Son.

Farmingdale, NY – Ferrandino & Son recently announced some strategic changes to their operating model in an attempt to better align with their supplier base.  However, when Chief Operating Officer Kevin Smith was asked what drove these changes, his answer was a little surprising.  “While the changes were clearly driven with the intent of improving the vendor experience, I have to admit that employee morale was an underlying theme,” Smith said.  “Our employees felt the stress that they couldn’t do more for our suppliers.  As a company, we had to respect that feedback and own the fact that we weren’t empowering our employees the way we should.” 

Smith went on to elaborate about the feedback already received by both the employee base and the suppliers.  “There is no doubt we are still going through the growing pains of the changes,” Smith said.  “However, I think everybody sees the long-term vision of what we want to accomplish.  The right changes have been made and now we just need to execute to reap the benefits.  As a company, we recognize if we think about our employees and the impact business changes will have, we will find much greater success in the execution of the services we deliver.”

Smith went on to share that the company has their own Spirit Committee which gives a segment of their employees a chance to meet with himself and provide feedback on both business initiatives and company morale.  “We’ve made real changes based on the feedback delivered through the Spirit Committee”, Smith said.  “It’s a great mechanism for honest and open opinions and while not everything can be executed on, understanding where the opportunities for improvement are and what we should focus on helps us strategize on a very high level.”

It must be exciting for employees to realize that an opinion shared in a routine meeting could result in sweeping changes as the company grows and evolves.  “We are willing to listen and will only have ourselves as a company to blame if we don’t act on the great suggestions tabled on a daily basis”, Smith said.

Understanding their needs around service validation and the technology requirements in the field is priceless.”  With the support of their Program Management and Development Teams, Ferrandino & Son, Inc. developed and launched their proprietary GeoCode App, allowing for real-time onsite validation of services.  “The term ‘soft release’ refers to the application only being available to vendors and internal employees,” said Smith. “Now, as we move into 2016, we’ll scale the use of the GeoCode application across all of our services and client portfolios. We are extremely excited to see this tool become another value-add for our overall service solution.  This will be a difference maker for Ferrandino & Son, Inc. as we continue to push ourselves for faster and more accurate data collection of services delivered.”
