Harrison Global Acquires "Next-Door" Chauffeured Sedan Service

Posted on February 13, 2013

WALTHAM, Mass. -- Harrison Global, based in Waltham, closed a deal Dec. 31, 2012 to buy the assets of New England Coach Incorporated, a chauffeured sedan service based in Canton, Mass.

Terms of the deal and the size of the transaction were not disclosed. It is the second acquisition for Harrison Global announced this quarter.


Derek Marcou, co-owner of Harrison Global, said in a statement: “New England Coach is a solid company with a loyal client base and a strong history of delivering excellent service. This compliments our recent acquisition of Regal Limousine Services in New Hampshire, now adding a base of operations south of Boston.”
 
New England Coach will report to Harrison Global managing partners Russ Cooke and Bill Gemmell. “Harrison has been well positioned north and west of Boston and with the addition of New England Coach we are now poised to efficiently service south of Boston," Gemmell said in a statement. "Staging a portion of our fleet in Canton is the perfect location to service the South Shore, Cape Cod and down to T. F. Green Airport in Rhode Island. Plus an important aspect of the deal is the addition of the strong Team at New England Coach.”

Harrison Global has more than 150 executive transportation vehicles in service and continues its business development and acquisition efforts across the Eastern Seaboard of the U.S. In addition to its Waltham headquarters and its newly acquired Massachusetts and New Hampshire locations, Harrison has operations in the Raleigh/Durham Triangle in North Carolina and in the Washington, D.C./Virginia markets. Harrison also provides service in 450 cities worldwide through affiliates and remains poised in a growth phase.
