The Jamesville, New York, company has 150 employees.

BrightView Holdings Inc., Plymouth Meeting, Pennsylvania, has announced the acquisition of Pro Scapes Inc., a commercial landscaping company headquartered in Jamesville, New York. Terms of the transaction were not disclosed.

Pro Scapes was founded as a one-man operation in the mid-1970s. Under the leadership of founder Rick Kier and his wife, Karen L. Kier, the company grew to become a leading grounds care provider in central New York. The company and its approximately 150 employees are committed to providing high-quality grounds maintenance, snow removal and irrigation services to their customers across commercial and industrial properties as well as upscale condominium complexes in Onondaga County. Pro Scapes’ strong relationships have been built on the company’s reputation for safely and reliably performing high quality work for their customers.

“We are excited to welcome Pro Scapes, its employees and their customers to BrightView,” says Andrew Masterman, BrightView president and CEO. “Over the years they have invested in developing operational processes, customized technological solutions and employee training programs that fueled their steady historical growth. In addition to bringing our best practices to bear in the strategically attractive market of Central New York, I am certain that BrightView’s existing operation will learn many of Pro Scapes’ secrets for success, especially in their snow removal business.”

Kier says he is proud of Pro Scapes’ rich history and believes that BrightView’s strategic approach to intense customer focus fits well with his company’s established customer service philosophy.

“BrightView’s national presence and formidable resources open the door to exciting long-term opportunities for our team members and our customers alike. I look forward to seeing the teams leverage our shared, customer-centric strategy, use of cutting edge tools and techniques, and commitment to employee development to drive future growth,” says Kier.
