A West Manchester Township emergency restoration business has expanded into Joppa, Maryland through a merger.

The business, Impact Disaster Services, repairs homes or businesses that have sustained damage following a fire or storm.

It is merging with Maryland-based Mason Dixon Services, which provides residential and commercial emergency restoration services including flooded basements, sump pump issue and mold.

Terms of the transaction were not disclosed.

The merger brings Impact a new office and employees, as well as industry experience, said Michael Rose, owner of Impact.

The company now has 40 employees and a fleet of 33 vehicles. Impact’s new office, located at 408 Pulaski Highway in Joppa, will start off with a staff of five.

The companies have worked together for several years, so a union made sense, said Steve Hull, former owner of Mason Dixon who will be working for Impact.

“I see my future at Impact Disaster Services being fast-paced and growth-oriented. We hope to become the premier, full-service restoration contractor for the state of Maryland,” Hull said in a statement.

Last year, Impact launched a division called Impact Energy Services, and has introduced another division, Impact Roofing, this year.
