Johnny on the Spot, LLC, Acquires Horizon Portable Restrooms (Trenton, NJ), the Company's Fourth Acquisition in Two Years
Prior to its acquisition by Johnny on the Spot, LLC., Horizon Portable Restrooms boasted a strong customer base in Central New Jersey and Eastern Pennsylvania, and quickly became a formidable portable sanitation provider, particularly in the construction and seasonal markets.
Horizon Portable Restrooms, formerly a division of Horizon Disposal Services (now a Mercer Group International subsidiary), was established in 2007 as a complementary service to its already successful solid waste division. Boasting a strong customer base in Central New Jersey and Eastern Pennsylvania, Horizon quickly became a formidable portable sanitation provider, particularly in the construction and seasonal markets.
“Horizon was a respected competitor for years, gaining many attractive clients in just eight years. We are excited to introduce the Johnny on the Spot Difference to these newly acquired clients,” says Jesse Thompson former president and now Director of Mergers & Acquisitions for JOTS. “We are also pleased to report that many Horizon employees have opted to remain with JOTS, including the long time sales manager at the firm, Rich Rivera. Our goal is to build on the successes of Horizon through refining the level of customer service provided and broadening the product scope to allow for more options to suit particular needs.”
Horizon clients are being assured a smooth transition in all aspects which is the result of a tremendous amount of planning. “Communication, technology and an industry best staff are critical components to successfully acquiring a company like Horizon during the portable sanitation peak season,” Thompson notes. “Our team was equipped and ready to take on the challenge, which will benefit employees and clients equally.”
The Horizon acquisition marks the second such strategic venture in the summer of 2015 for JOTS. On Site Johnny (Hackensack, NJ) was acquired by JOTS in late June 2015 and has provided enhanced density in the already strong Bergen County, New Jersey portable sanitation market for the company.
