BRIGHTON, Mich.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Orion Group (“Orion”), a commercial facility services platform backed by Alpine Investors, announced today that it has partnered with American Project & Repair (AP&R). AP&R is a leading national facilities maintenance (“FM”) company based in Brighton, MI, and is Orion FM’s first partner specializing in interior services. Orion is building a national FM platform by partnering with exceptional founder-owned facility services businesses and providing resources to help fuel their next chapters of growth.
“We’ve had a great 24 years and I’m confident that AP&R’s growth and quality will only continue to increase as part of the Orion FM network.”
AP&R specializes in providing handyman, plumbing, electrical, and locksmith services across the U.S. and Puerto Rico. It was founded in 1998 by industry-veteran Ted Mastrucci and has continued to grow over the past 24 years through its commitment to long-term partnerships with customers, collaboration with service partners, and dedication to superior service, no matter what. Over the next year, Ted will begin to transition his leadership to his long-standing deputy Erin Lucas. Seasoned managers and customer and vendor representatives, Meghan Petchell, Amanda Knezevich and Brandon Keller will continue in their leadership roles.
“Ted has created a unique interior service offering that prioritizes long-term relationships with service partners and advocating for customers. His industry expertise and commitment to excellence is inspiring and I am thrilled to welcome AP&R to the Orion FM platform,” said Isaiah Brown, co-CEO of Orion.
“It has been an exciting and rewarding 24 years leading American Project & Repair, but I knew the time had come to begin to take a step back. I was looking for a company that would value my team, customers and service partners as much as I did, and that’s what I found with Orion,” said Ted Mastrucci, owner of AP&R. “We’ve had a great 24 years and I’m confident that AP&R’s growth and quality will only continue to increase as part of the Orion FM network.”
“American Project & Repair has built a close-knit family dedicated to their customers’ interior service needs. The leadership has a combined 75+ years of industry experience and brings a wealth of knowledge to the Orion FM platform.
