Gilbane to acquire W.G. Mills, Inc.


November 15, 2010

Rhode Island-based Gilbane Building Company, one of the nation’s leading providers of Construction Management and related services, announced today plans to acquire W.G. Mills, Inc., a construction management firm with operations based in Florida. The acquisition will dramatically strengthen Gilbane’s position in Florida’s growing market and complement its already established presence in the southeast.

“The Mills firm is a good fit for Gilbane both geographically and strategically,” says Thomas F. Gilbane, Jr., chairman and CEO. “Both companies are completely focused on client satisfaction and many of the markets we serve overlap. This newest addition to the Gilbane family of services makes us stronger and adds depth to our capabilities.”

The merger of W.G. Mills into Gilbane will leverage Gilbane’s national knowledge base, financial depth and employee training to enable the Mills operations to deliver even larger and more sophisticated projects to its broad Florida client base.

W.G. Mills is a major player in the state of Florida with seven offices and enjoys a reputation for exceeding clients’ expectations. With 155 employees and annual revenue of $250 million, the firm is active in a variety of construction sectors, including educational facilities, commercial, retail, health care, hospitality, and recreational facilities. Offering all types of delivery approaches over the past 38 years, W.G Mills has achieved significant growth in the Florida region in large part due to a repeat client-base.

“We began working with Gilbane as a joint venture partner and recognized right away that our companies were a perfect fit. We are both privately owned and both have an intense focus on taking care of our customers,” says Lemuel Sharp III, President of W.G. Mills. “For us, it’s all about people and forming deep client relationships, and Gilbane shares these same values.”

W.G. Mills, Inc. will become an integrated part of Gilbane’s current operations, serving as the company’s Florida region and operating under the name Mills Gilbane. The W.G. Mills management team will remain in place, with Sharp becoming Senior Vice President and Regional Manager of Gilbane’s new Florida regional office. The acquisition is expected to be complete December 1, 2010, subject to satisfactory completion of due diligence currently in progress.
