MORTON GROVE -- Lakeshore Recycling Systems has acquired Joliet-based Drop Zone Portable Service Inc., a provider of portable restrooms serving greater Chicago.
Terms of the acquisition were not announced.
As a result, LRS becomes one of the largest portable restroom providers in Illinois and Wisconsin, and increases its inventory of portable restrooms to over 12,000 units. The acquisition adds 20 Drop Zone employees, 10 trucks, 2,000 portable restroom units and nearly 5,000 Drop Zone portable restroom and construction site customers to LRS' Portable Toilet Division. The acquisition also expands and strengthens LRS' south suburban service area and dramatically increases LRS' event work capacity.
This strategic acquisition aligns seamlessly with our mission, deepens our event orientated service offerings and expands our geographic reach," said Lakeshore Recycling Systems CEO Alan T. Handley.
Drop Zone President Brad Denton hailed the acquisition as a win-win for Drop Zone customers and employees, adding he and his team become part of the LRS family.
