HES Facilities LLC was formed in May 2020 with a “clear vision” and purpose, offering services needed now, perhaps more than ever before. Named after Buddy Helton, its founding Chairman, HES stands for “Helton Education Services.” HES was formed in May 2020 when Buddy and his team partnered with Nautic Partners, LLC, a middle market private equity fund that has previously sponsored Buddy’s businesses. HES’s first acquisition was SMS, LLC, a leading regional company which was founded in 2007 in the foothills of the Great Smoky Mountains National Park of East Tennessee. In fact, the shades of the mountains of East Tennessee are reflected in our HES colors and logo. HES’ acquisition of SMS in May 2020 positions HES to deliver best-in-class services not only in the Southeast, but across the United States. HES’ primary goal is to provide clean, safe, and well-maintained education environments where the students, teachers, and administration can thrive in their surroundings. HES intends to grow via word of mouth and recommendations from its valued clients, and through future partnerships or acquisitions involving other like-minded regional education facilities companies. HES offers turnkey custodial services, facilities maintenance, and groundskeeping services for both K-12 schools and institutes of higher learning. We are excited for you to learn more about how HES’ management team developed a reputation and track record of delivering the best results in the industry.
