Expand under current name or start another company?

In a toss up.

Im working on a plan to break into a niche market.
Flood/Erosion Protection and prevention, providing mobile and onsite sandbagging, palletized prefilled sandbags, infrastructure and site flood/erosion protection,prevention and emergency/disaster response.

Im taking the Lousiana business law exam and the Heavy Construction Exam in a few weeks. I already came up with a new company name, logo, etc...

whats yalls opinion on i guess starting out new all over again?
should i just run undermy current name and add a new division or start a whole new company and keep them seperate

Current Company: One Krayzee Kajun Enterprises LLC (8yrs in business)

2nd Compnay name: Kajun Flood Workz, Inc.

thoughts, opinions,

I think I'd stick with one name. If your name was like Kajun Lawn Care then it might be a good idea to start a second company. Would probably be less paper work and stuff to just operate under 1 name.

Just got back from a meeting with my business attorney. We layed everything out and from a business outlook and a legal point. Its best to start the new company. We started the paperwork today.

I would start a second one to keep them separate on paper. That way if worse comes to worse you still have one company
