Redmond, WA (PRWEB) May 3, 2006
ABODA, formerly Northwest Suites & Housing Services, has acquired Florida-based operations of Furnished Quarters, President and CEO Dave Caple announced today.
Coming on the heels of the company’s name change and just months after ABODA’s acquisition of Boston-based Corporate Housing Options, this purchase lends additional fuel to ABODA’s aggressive pattern of national expansion and service diversification for the company and its corporate relocation and housing services.
“This purchase offers long term strategic value and lends credibility to ABODA as a viable business model that can provide coast to coast national coverage,” Caple said. “It also gives us a foothold on the Southeastern market for expansion, and will help us service current customers going into this market as well as provide additional opportunity to diversify our growing client base and geographic footprint.”
In addition to the Florida market, ABODA is currently identifying opportunities to expand their reach through additional acquisitions nationwide.
