SiteOne Landscape Supply, Roswell, Georgia, a national wholesale distributor of landscape supplies has announced the acquisition of Atlantic Irrigation, North White Plains, New York. Started in 1976, Atlantic is a distributor of irrigation, lighting, drainage and landscaping equipment with 33 locations across 13 states in the eastern U.S. and two provinces in eastern Canada.

“Atlantic significantly expands the scale of our irrigation and lighting business in the eastern U.S. and Canada markets,” says Doug Black, Chairman and CEO of SiteOne Landscape Supply. “This transaction represents the largest number of locations that we have acquired in a single acquisition in more than a decade. The addition of Atlantic complements our existing branch network and strengthens our full-line offering of nursery, hardscape, agronomic, irrigation and landscape lighting products. Atlantic’s talented team has a history of exceptional customer service spanning over 40 years. Overall this is a terrific addition to the SiteOne family.”
