NEW YORK–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Orion Group (“Orion”), a commercial and industrial field services company backed by Alpine Investors, today announced the launch of Alder, a New York-based technology services provider. Alder is the second interior design services company and fourth company overall to join Orion’s facilities maintenance (FM) business.
Alder connects commercial customers seeking installation services to a wide range of vendors through dynamic, web-based software. The Alder network includes hundreds of pre-approved service providers across 70 different service lines in over 40 metropolitan areas around the world. Alder’s easy-to-use software and dedicated account management team create a seamless and simple process for facility managers to obtain any scheduled or on-demand service. Alder is also committed to helping drive growth for local and national service providers by finding reliable customers and automating billing work to reduce administrative burden.
“High quality service providers don’t always have a strong marketing presence beyond word of mouth. This has made it extremely difficult for facility and office managers to find the best vendors at a price that works for both parties. Alder is an advanced technology solution to this problem – connecting customers and service providers across the United States,” said Isaiah Brown, co-CEO of Orion.
“I am delighted to be working with Kendra Ponte, Alder’s longtime operations manager, who will lead growth and development going forward. Kendra has already built an exceptional account management and support team, which provides FM expertise to our customers,” said Jacquie O’Connor, CEO of Orion FM.
“With the support of Orion, we have the opportunity to build on our foundations and enhance Alder’s product offerings. I am excited to continue supporting our customers and suppliers alongside the Orion team,” said Kendra Ponte, Managing Director.
Orion Group is a commercial and industrial field services company that invests in and develops market-leading businesses. Orion builds national businesses across multiple field service industries by investing in companies with great cultures, attracting top technical and managerial talent, and creating unparalleled growth opportunities for them.

Alder was acquired from Eden in July 2022, when Eden established its technology facilities services marketplace. Orion has made Alder an independent entity and is investing in product and growth initiatives to continue to serve customers and suppliers. The new Alder software platform will be a one-stop-shop for anyone with facility maintenance needs. Not only will Alder be a place to find services, but it will also include a comprehensive workflow solution that provides business insights to help customers and suppliers grow and optimize their businesses.
