HALTOM CITY, Texas, Sept. 9, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- BMS CAT proudly announces the recent acquisition of Guardian Restoration. Headquartered in St. Petersburg, Guardian specializes in the repair, restoration and reconstruction of home and commercial buildings in West Central Florida.

Guardian Restoration will bolt-on to the current BMS CAT Tampa team. By joining forces, they will be able to maximize resources, while minimizing obstacles for continued growth in and around the Tampa area. Furthermore, this acquisition strengthens BMS CAT’s footprint in Florida.

“BMS CAT is pleased to announce our strategic acquisition of Guardian Restoration. We have viewed the Tampa/St. Petersburg marketplace as a key location in our company’s growth strategy.
