Move allows for Apopka-based theming company to capitalize on growth
Online PR News – 16-May-2018 – Apopka, Fl – (May 8, 2018) - Since JK2 started its Scenic Division in 2008, the company has seen strong growth as it carved out a niche for architectural millwork, theming, custom props and specialty items in the construction industry.
Today, JK2 announced it would spin off JK2 Scenic into its own, separate company to allow the business to further capitalize on its unique growth opportunities.
"I'm incredibly proud of how much this family business has grown over the last 31 years," said Paul Holmes, founder of JK2. "With growth comes the opportunity to look more deeply at the business, and it was clear it was time to make the move. This will allow JK2 Scenic the ability to diversify and expand services outside of the JK2 Construction umbrella."
JK2 Construction was founded 31 years ago, with the spirit of entrepreneurship, hard work, and dedication to its customers. In 2008 and in the midst of the Great Recession, the Scenic Division was formed to diversify the business. Over the last 10 years, JK2 Scenic has been growing talent, streamlining production workflow, increasing production capacity, and formalizing a business plan to strategically increase market share.
With the announcement of the new company, Julie Holmes, the daughter of Paul Holmes, has been named president of JK2 Scenic. She joined the family business in 2013 and previously served as vice president of the Scenic Division. Julie has been leading the day-to-day operations of JK2 Scenic since joining the leadership team, and the move opens a pathway to qualify the company as a Woman-Owned Business.
"We're looking forward to continuing the tradition of building quality, creative projects through JK2 Scenic," Julie Holmes said. "The company started with the idea of building dreams through custom theming, architectural millwork and specialty themed items. Now, we'll be able to take those services even further for our clients focused on creative experiences and branding."
JK2 Scenic will continue to expand its client base outside of the Central Florida market and is in growth mode to take the company to the next level.
"This is an exciting time for JK2," Julie Holmes said. "We look forward to seeing both companies grow and flourish."
