New 20,000-square-foot facility expands expected to expand the commercial landscape company’s green footprint.


Eastern Land Management, a commercial landscape and winter snow/ice services firm serving Fairfield County, Connecticut, for more than 40 years, has opened a 6-acre, 20,000-square-foot campus in Monroe.

The expansion is part of ELM’s multi-year strategic investment to advance the company’s green footprint, integrate emerging technologies, and improve processes and practices to meet the stewardship needs of its clients throughout Fairfield County.

The campus will serve as a hub for its winter operations and will house ELM’s new zero-emission, all-electric fleet. In addition, the site will include safe and sustainable salt storage, an eco-friendly brine-making facility, and a fleet of specialized vehicles and equipment for anti-icing pre-treatment, snow removal, and post-storm liquid applications during winter weather events.

“Last year, we committed to dramatically take our green game up a notch,” said Bruce Moore Jr., company president. “With a special focus on alternative fuels, and less harmful approaches, we hope to make ELM a leader in sustainability and value creation.”

The Monroe project team included: ELM CEO Bruce Moore, Sr., project lead; Claris Construction, building architect and general contractor; and Solli Engineering, land use consultant and owner’s representative. Construction began in 2017.

Company president Bruce Moore Jr. is currently leading the Monroe roll-out, with associate branch manager Greg Gross driving day-to-day operations.

The new office is located at 154 Enterprise Drive, Monroe, Connecticut, 06468.
