The JOBS Group and Valcourt Building Services have a rich history of safety, scalability and service. They’re continuing that mission of an industry-wide standard by partnering with Sightline Services based in Atlanta, GA.

Sightline has worked tirelessly to build a strong base of clients and is committed to following the highest standards of conduct and service in the high-rise building maintenance industry. 

Dan Wheelin, President of Sightline, expressed his excitement over the acquisition:

The JOBS Group demonstrated a desire to expand its footprint and create a new standard of service in the industry. This acquisition means that Sightline attracted the right attention for our commitment to our customers and strong business relationships. We look forward to becoming part of the The JOBS Group family and expanding the services offered through their other partners, including Valcourt Building Services, within our area footprint.

Amber Corson, GM of Valcourt Building Services added, Valcourt is thrilled to have the Sightline team join us in the Atlanta market. We have worked alongside each other for many years and we’re excited to now be able to combine resources and knowledge to serve the market in even better ways.

Eric Crabb, CEO of The JOBS Group also noted, “Dan, Heather, Justin and the entire team at Sightline have built an exceptional business.  We are very excited to add them to our organization and continue to add capabilities to our existing Valcourt team in the Georgia market.”

Valcourt and The JOBS Group Expand Florida Footprint With A1 Orange Partnership

Oct 22, 2021

Valcourt and The JOBS Group, industry experts in building exterior services, have partnered with A1 Orange to create a greater presence in exterior maintenance in Florida.

The JOBS Group and Valcourt Building Services have a rich history of scalability and service. They’re continuing that mission of an industry-wide standard by partnering with A1 Orange Exterior Building Services in Florida. This brings another window cleaning company, one with 95+ years’ experience, under the Valcourt and JOBS umbrella, following another recent acquisition of Martin’s Window Cleaning Corp as well. 

The move to partner with A1 Orange also creates new opportunities for expansion of waterproofing services in the Orlando, Jacksonville, and Tampa areas, and it will only be a matter of time before Valcourt’s added services, including concrete and facade maintenance, become synonymous with A1 Orange too. This will also make top-level services of The JOBS Group, including stonework, metal refinishing, and custom elevator interiors readily available to building owners in  Florida as well. 

Vickie Couture, President of A1 Orange since 1991 and the third-generation Couture family member to become president of the organization, expressed her excitement over this partnership:

“I am thrilled to lead Team Orange as we join the Valcourt/Jobs Group. I’ve known the principals of this organization on a personal level for over 30 years. They are true leaders in our industry. We share a vision of safety, professionalism, client appreciation, and employee recognition. We are most definitely stronger together, which benefits our clients and our team members.” 

Those same values were echoed by John (JD) McGrath, VP of JOBS Group:

“The addition of the A1 Orange team brings instant credibility to Valcourt and The JOBS Group as we expand our Florida footprint into window cleaning and further enhance our waterproofing offerings. A1 Orange has been the premier provider of exterior maintenance for over 95 years in Orlando, Jacksonville, and Tampa. Their proven track record and passion for excellence in safety, customer relationships, and service align completely with our core values. We are proud to be partnering with such a great business and look forward to helping A1 Orange continue their growth with expanded service line capabilities.”

These comments also align with what Eric Crabb, CEO of The JOBS Group, had to say about the new partnership:

“We’ve continued to expand on the original mission of Jeff Valcourt and LaRue Coleman to bring safety-, quality- and integrity-first building services to more building owners, and our acquisitions and partnerships over the last 19 months have demonstrated our approach is world-class and in-demand. I’m excited to see our brand’s alignment and look forward to reaching more customers in Florida.”

This new partnership is clearly a new beginning for The JOBS Group as expansion continues and services become more focused, consolidated and efficient in an industry that remains in-demand throughout disruptions of the world.
