DRD, LLC acquired by Access

Livermore, CA, December 10, 2014 – Rob Alston, CEO of Access, has announced the company’s recent acquisition of Diversified Research and Development, LLC, of Portage, Indiana. This transaction is the company’s 75th since its founding and represents an expansion of its Chicago market area presence into northwestern Indiana. Closing took place on November 7, 2014.

Ron Bush, DRD, LLC’s former owner, shared his reasoning for selecting Access as the buyer. “The best possible outcome for our clients was our priority throughout this process. My wife, Dorian, and I quickly came to recognize the Access commitment to providing its clients the very best service. Our interactions with the Access acquisition and operations teams gave us the level of confidence and comfort we needed to make this important decision. Today, we know we made the right one.”

Access President John Chendo explained, “Ron Bush recognized the many benefits a sale of his company to Access would afford his clients with our increased capabilities and the nationwide footprint Access offers. I look forward to discussing these unique Access benefits with other industry business owners, who like Ron, may be considering the opportunity to partner with us.”
