New Orleans-based Empire Services, a commercial facility maintenance company, has been acquired by Kellermeyer Bergensons Services, a California-based provider of interior and exterior property services, the company announced on Wednesday.

The transaction closed Dec. 29. The price was not disclosed.

Empire Services is a commercial facility maintenance firm with branches in Baton Rouge, Monroe and Metairie, as well as in Austin, Texas.

Empire Founder and President Charlie Lusco said the deal would "provide our people and our customers the absolute best path forward."

"This partnership allows us to continue to deliver our brand of Empire service to our customers with our same leadership team, while adding tremendous resources that now make it possible for us to compete for and win projects that may have been out of reach for us in the past," Lusco said.
