BRADENTON – An industry leader in the concrete contractor sector, privately-owned and operated, Curbco, Inc. was founded by Jim Kersey, more than (30) years ago. Specializing in concrete curbing, sidewalks, driveways, and parking lots, Mr. Kersey developed the Company into the “go to” trade partner for many general contractors, excavators, and developers across Manatee and Sarasota counties.
“I am delighted that Cast-Crete decided to purchase my company, Curbco. Aberdeen Advisors found the perfect buyer for my business. The acquisition will allow me to retire within a reasonable timeframe while giving my team, including my sons, an opportunity to remain with the business and reap the rewards of accelerated future growth.”
The successful acquirer, Cast-Crete (a portfolio company of Stonebridge Partners), recognized the value of the Company’s long-standing client relationships and outstanding reputation within the region. Stonebridge Operating Partner, Dave Schopp, commented, “Curbco is the perfect fit for our portfolio company, Cast-Crete. We have great respect for the exceptional company Jim Kersey and his team have built over the past 33 years. We look forward to working with Curbco’s customers and employees to continue the tradition of success of this outstanding business.”
“From his team of dedicated employees to his longevity in the marketplace, Jim built a first-class company. We were thrilled to represent Curbco and ultimately, find the right buyer to help Jim transition into retirement,” added Emery Ellinger, Chief Executive Officer of Aberdeen Advisors.
