At present, Fortis has over 300 professionals providing quality facility services across more than 30 states.
“PCI Federal Services continues to expand our government contracting services footprint and Fortis Industries brings an exciting addition to our growing Federal Agency support initiatives. We are thrilled to add them to our portfolio of companies,” said Stephanie A. Bryan, chairwoman and CEO of the Poarch Creek Indians. “We are particularly excited to continue advancing our growth in the Huntsville area as well as Alabama as a whole.”
Fortis Industries will remain a standalone business and operate under the direction of Ecke Holding Company, dba PCI Federal Services (PCIFS), a division of the Poarch Creek Indians. The change in ownership took place July 8, 2022, according to a release.
“We could not ask for a better partner to join than the Poarch Creek Indians in our effort to provide superior facility services to the U.S. Government. This acquisition enables our Alabama-based organizations to grow and expand our capabilities across the federal government, while creating employee and community opportunities,” said Josh Hancock, CEO of Fortis Industries.
Hancock (CEO), Casey Palmer (COO) and Brett Holt (CFO), will remain in their existing leadership roles.
Fortis Industries’ professionals, clients and partner firms will see no change in business operations.
