Stratus, a facilities services and brand implementation services firm, has acquired Chicago area-based MLE Brand Services. The newly combined Stratus and MLE facilities service offerings cover the full brand lifecycle, including interior and exterior signage, refresh and remodel construction, repair and maintenance, and energy services.

“MLE and Stratus both have stellar reputations for service, quality, and brand partnership, so this acquisition is a natural next step,” noted Tim Eippert, CEO, Stratus.  “Our capabilities are highly complementary, and by joining forces we’ll be able to provide a more holistic offering to our combined client base.” 

“Together, Stratus and MLE will provide superior and seamless end-to-end in-house service offerings, with our clients at the center of everything we do,” said MLE founder Mike Loftus

Stratus is a portfolio company of Vestar Capital Partners.
