Pierre Bergeron,
CEO Taggart Group of Companies

The Taggart Group of Companies is pleased to announce that on September 1 st , 2021, they acquired Tartan Homes. The Taggart Group and Tartan have a long- standing history and partnership, and together have built some of Ottawa’s most well-known subdivisions. As distinct and reputable home builders in Ottawa, the companies hold similar values and principles. The synergies between the two companies will drive value for employees, homeowners, and communities alike.

The acquisition of Tartan Homes includes their land, design centre, and current project sites, as well as welcoming Tartan’s employees to the Taggart team. Tartan will continue to operate as a separate entity under the umbrella of the Taggart Group of Companies. Through this acquisition, both Tamarack and Tartan will be able to accelerate their strategic growth plans, while continuing to deliver some of the highest quality homes in the National Capital Region.

There will be no change to any of the operations at Tartan Homes. All Agreements of Purchase and Sale with current and future Tartan customers, and all contracts and related obligations with subcontractors and strategic partners will remain in place.
