Ruppert Landscape, Laytonsville, Maryland, has acquired Scott & Sons Landscaping located in Dagsboro, Delaware. Founded in 1997 by Scott Shubert, Scott & Sons offers residential and commercial landscape maintenance, design, irrigation, pest and nutrient management and hardscape installation on the Delmarva Peninsula.
“Similar to Ruppert, Scott & Sons invested in owning and maintaining a first-class operating facility and employed a strong team, dedicated to great customer service,” says Tom Barry, president of Ruppert’s landscape management division. “We felt that this would help give us a great base of operations in Delmarva and market-specific knowledge from which to build in the years ahead.”
The transaction includes the purchase of one facility, all commercial landscape management contracts, vehicles and equipment and the onboarding of all employees. Ruppert will relocate their newly opened Delmarva branch from its temporary facility to join the Scott & Sons team in their facility.
“Ruppert is committed to retaining the Scott & Sons team and all of their commercial landscape maintenance contracts,” says Garth Jorgensen, Ruppert’s Delmarva branch manager. “This acquisition allows us to strengthen our newly formed team to better serve our customers and expand our service coverage in this new market.”
