Based in Burlington, Washington, Legend Brands was the leading manufacturer of restorative drying products for the water damage restoration industry with over 60% market share in the U.S at the time of our investment. The Company’s product line includes dehumidifiers, air movers, chemicals, air filtration equipment, water extractors, water detection instruments and accessories. These products are used by restoration contractors and carpet cleaners to dry structures saturated with moisture from storms, floods, broken water pipes, water leaks and natural disasters.
In 2006, Endeavour partnered with another private investor and management to purchase the Company from its founder. Endeavour was attracted to the Company due to its leading market share and well recognized brand within its niche industry. In 2007, Endeavour assisted the Company with its acquisition of Unsmoke Systems, a manufacturer of fire and water damage restoration chemicals. In 2009, Endeavour helped management expand their product offering into the truck-mounted cleaning industry by acquiring Blueline Equipment LLC.
Endeavour and the other shareholders sold the Company in 2011.
