Self Storage Building System Manufacturer Grows Through Acquisitions

Trachte Building Systems, Inc. has announced the acquisition of three related businesses located in Vernon, Alabama: Roof Mart, LLC, Made Right, LLC, and Metal Land, LLC.

This acquisition will provide Trachte Building Systems with a new operating platform that will improve its position as a leading resource for self storage building systems, steel curtain doors, refurbishment services and public safety training systems. It will also provide the required resources to accelerate the growth of Roof Mart and Made Right Buildings.

Trachte has also announced that Joe McNees, current COO of the Roof Mart companies, will be joining the Trachte organization as General Manager for the new Roof Mart division of Trachte Building Systems.

The Trachte company welcomes its new teammates and looks forward to continuing the valued relationships with customers and suppliers of Roof Mart and Made Right.

“Roof Mart’s entrepreneurial roots and customer-focused culture make the Roof Mart team a natural fit with employee ownership. We welcome the Roof Mart teammates to the Trachte team. We will invest in our Vernon operation to enhance the value of all of our combined products and services for our customers.” Jeff Burbach, CEO Trachte Building Systems.

TKO Miller, an independent bank who provided merger and financial advisory services for the deal, also commented on the acquisitions.

"The acquisition of Roof Mart allows Trachte to add a new manufacturing facility in the Southeastern U.S., which gives it access to new customers and end markets, and further establishes Trachte's market-leading position," said Tammie Miller, Managing Director at TKO Miller. "Roof Mart's complementary steel fabrication capabilities will further strengthen Trachte's existing operations in the prefabricated metal buildings market and allow it to more readily service a truly national footprint. Overall, the transaction represents an ideal match between parties, both operationally and culturally."

"With our combined operations, we're excited to begin working with the talented Roof Mart team to rapidly expand our market position and continue to build upon the strong legacy that Roof Mart has established, all while offering its employees the opportunity to build wealth and grow in their careers as new members of the Trachte ESOP," said Jeff Burbach, Chief Executive Officer, Trachte Building Systems.
