BIRMINGHAM, Mich. – July 14, 2016, – VESTA Modular today announced it has acquired 76 classroom units in Florida, which will be immediately leased to school districts in the state. The acquisition is the latest in a string of moves related to the company’s continued expansion into the commercial space-rental business.
VESTA’s efforts were led by the company’s Southeastern team and represent a key step in the diversification of VESTA’s business. Speaking at the Florida Educational Facilities Planners’ Association Conference, VESTA’s Southeastern Sales Manager, Whatley Law, who spearheaded the transaction, said: “I’m happy we were able to acquire the buildings and step in to help these school districts. I’ve been in this business over 25 years and know schools often struggle this time of year to have enough space for incoming students. These additional units will benefit everyone.”
Over the last year, VESTA has focused a substantial amount of its efforts to grow in the modular leasing segment. “While management and our investors have been focused on a variety of modular applications, we firmly believe in the growth potential of the commercial leasing business and are committed to that segment,” said VESTA CEO Daniel McMurtrie.
