FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. – Atlantic Southern Paving and Sealcoating, a premier national commercial paving company headquartered in Fort Lauderdale, FL, announced today that it has acquired James E. Watts & Sons Contractors, a full-service concrete and asphalt paving contractor serving the Northeastern Alabama market. The Watts team will become a second location for Massey Asphalt Paving and allow us to continue to grow our maintenance services in Gadsden, AL and surrounding areas.
“We are very excited to welcome Watts to our Atlantic Southern team,” said Michael J. Curry Jr, CEO of Atlantic Southern. “With over 50 years of paving and concrete experience in the area, partnered with our team at Massey Asphalt, we will continue to maximize our capabilities in Alabama and surrounding areas.”
Watts was established in 1967 with the vision of creating a company built on providing quality paving, concrete and drainage work in the commercial and municipal industries. This new partnership will allow Massey Asphalt to expand its service radius and continue to build customer relationships in the commercial paving industry while keeping high-quality performance and great service in the forefront.
The acquisition of Watts is the 11th transaction completed by Atlantic Southern, and its second acquisition in the Alabama market, under its partnership with Harbor Beach Capital, a middle-market private equity firm with a proven track record of driving organic and inorganic growth in middle-market businesses. This latest acquisition is well aligned with Harbor Beach and Atlantic Southern’s shared commitment of expanding the geographic footprint of the company through organic growth initiatives combined with selective strategic acquisitions.
