SiteOne Landscape Supply Inc., Roswell, Georgia, acquired Burnco Landscape Centres Inc., a wholly owned subsidiary of Burnco Rock Products Ltd. Burnco Landscape Centres serves the three western Canadian provinces of British Columbia, Alberta and Saskatchewan from 12 locations focused on the distribution of hardscapes and landscape supplies to landscape professionals.
“Burnco Landscape Centres is a market leader in Western Canada and a great fit with SiteOne as they expand our product offering in these provinces to include hardscapes and landscape supplies, complementing our growing irrigation and agronomics presence there,” says Doug Black, chairman and CEO of SiteOne Landscape Supply. “This addition moves us strongly forward on our mission to be the best full-line distributor to landscape professionals in all major U.S. and Canadian markets.”
“The Burnco organization has developed a strong relationship at the leadership level with SiteOne over a number of years,” says Scott Burns, chairman and CEO of Burnco Rock Products. “We believe SiteOne acquiring our landscape supply business opens a new and winning chapter for the landscape centres’ employees, customers and suppliers in Western Canada. We expect SiteOne will be an excellent owner for the business and look forward to continuing to work closely with them in future.”
Morgan Martel, Burnco Landscape Centres’ long-time president, will continue to lead the company.
“Morgan and his team are focused on providing excellent quality, service and value to their customers, and we are excited to have them as part of our family. We are committed to delivering the best customer experience in the green industry and the combination of the Burnco Landscape Centres and SiteOne brings us one step closer to achieving that goal,” says Black.“ This is our seventh acquisition in 2020 as we continue to expand into new markets and increase the number of markets where we provide a full range of landscape supplies and services to our customers.”
