What Does the Ideal Partnership Look Like?
BluSky’s goal is to attract the top firms in our industry to partner with us. With that said, we strive to be the ideal company for any owner contemplating a merger by providing growth, stability, and long-term successful career paths for owners and their team members. BluSky is extremely proud of our firm commitment to integrity, culture, and the importance of our people.
We seek companies of great integrity whose owners:
- Operate with character and consistency
- Align with BluSky’s core values
- Have a reputation for substantially contributing to the betterment of the restoration industry
- Prioritize the well-being of their team when considering selling (It is very important to us to protect and retain all employees when we enter into a partnership)
- Want to see their company and people grow, thrive, and continue the legacy that has been built – but better.
When a company joins the BluSky team, you help write the next chapters of the BluSky story. Many of the faces you see on our Leadership Team have come from successfully merged firms over the past five years. Many of the new BluSky family members have great success and their career paths take off to a place they hadn’t dreamt of before. Tremendous growth, success, and culture of family are achievable when you partner with BluSky.
A completed merger is not the end of the story. Our goal is nothing short of setting the industry standard for company integration – we have a dedicated team that manages the entire process of becoming one cohesive company – One BluSky.
