Ewing Irrigation & Landscape Supply, Phoenix, today announced its merger with three Kenney Outdoor Solutions sprinkler locations, further extending Ewing’s footprint in the Midwest.
Kenney Outdoor Solutions has served the green industry since 1906 and is a multigenerational family-owned business. Combining these two strong family-owned businesses better allows Ewing to serve green industry professionals in the Midwest.
“Growing with Kenney Outdoor Solutions is a great opportunity for Ewing as we enter these new markets. We are gaining a robust team, optimum locations and a strong partnership for our customers in this market,” said Dale Nieuwbeerta, Ewing’s Great Lakes Division Vice President.
Ewing, the nation’s largest family-owned wholesale distributor of landscape and water management products, will be merging the Kenney Rochester Hills location into Sterling Heights, Michigan, while maintaining the existing Kenney’s Grand Rapids, Michigan, and Indianapolis, Indiana locations. Through this partnership, Ewing will retain the local staff at the three new Ewing locations.
“As a family-owned business, it was important to partner with another multi-generational family company that upholds similar values, culture and focus on customer service as Ewing. We are looking forward to embracing our new Ewing family members and providing the quality service all Ewing customers expect to the green industry pros in Michigan and Indiana,” said Douglas W. York, Ewing President and CEO.
While Ewing expands through these three Kenney sprinkler locations, Kenney Machinery Corporation will continue to own and operate locations focused on Toro commercial equipment and golf irrigation sales. Ewing will now operate seven locations in the Midwest.
