Brothers Zack and Tommy Steven are continuing their acquisition spree.

Through their Reddi Industries, they’ve purchased DJ Environmental in Lincoln, Kan.

“They’re an industrial services company,” Zack Steven says. “It’s similar to the same industrial services we provide in Wichita.”

That includes pumping, jetting and line cleaning of such things as mud and grease traps, floating tanks and septic tanks among other things.

Lincoln is about a half hour northwest of Salina.

“They’ve been around for a while, so they’ve got a customer base,” Steven says.

“We can now service from a closer proximity,” he says of customers in that area. “We can respond quicker to them.”

Reddi already services in much of the state.

“This location definitely put us up in that north-central area,” Steven says.

DJ has four employees. Steven says he anticipates adding more and eventually changing the company name to Reddi.

Earlier this year, The Stevens bought Overhead Door and its sister company, Aviation & Specialty Doors. Prior to that, they bought Bob’s Door and Aero Fence along with some plumbing companies.

Also, this year, the brothers moved their corporate headquarters to 6205 E. Kellogg and are planning a grand opening celebration on Dec. 15.

“We’re finishing construction there,” Zack Steven says.

No other acquisition deals are close at the moment.

“We’re always looking,” Steven says. “We’re always in the market for the right fit.”
