Stay Green Inc., a family-owned and operated landscape services company based in Santa Clarita, announced Tuesday it has acquired Wurzel Landscape, a Studio City-based commercial landscape maintenance company founded by Marc Wurzel in 1975.
Effective immediately, the acquired operations become a part of Stay Green with additional details to be disclosed at a later date.
“Wurzel Landscape is an established local organization with an excellent reputation and great people. We’re thrilled to welcome them into the Stay Green family,” said CEO Chris Angelo, who is also the incoming chairman of the Santa Clarita Valley Chamber of Commerce.
“We’ve been searching for the right company to complement our growing position in the region,” Angelo said. “This purchase will strengthen our core services and enable us to be even more competitive.”
Despite the challenging economy, Stay Green has remained an industry leader, consistently gaining ground in growth and profitability. Landscape Management Magazine named Stay Green one of the top 150 landscape contractors in the nation. Additionally, the company has won numerous awards, including seven major accolades from the California Landscape Contractors Association (CLCA) in 2011, for achievements in public works and large residential, medium commercial, and large commercial maintenance. Stay Green also leads the industry in sustainability practices in landscape and water management and expert tree and plant-health care.
“With this acquisition,” Angelo said, “Stay Green will gain an even greater foothold in the Southern California landscape services market and grow as a regional presence in the multi-billion dollar landscape industry. We’re excited for our company’s future and the new opportunities we’ll have to serve additional communities.”
