Heritage Landscape Supply Group Inc., McKinney, Texas, acquired Wolf Creek Company, a family-owned distributor of irrigation, outdoor lighting and other landscape products.
Headquartered in Trotwood, Ohio, Wolf Creek was founded in 1961 and is currently led by second generation family members, Scott and Chris Knowles. The company operates a network of seven branches across Ohio, Kentucky and Pennsylvania, and employs a team of more than 40 people. Scott and Chris Knowles will continue to lead the company’s employee base under the Wolf Creek banner, alongside Joe Twardzik and Chuck Watterson, ensuring continuity and consistency for customers and supplier partners.
“We are very excited to welcome the outstanding employees at Wolf Creek to the Heritage family. We have tremendous respect for the Knowles family in both the business they have built and their passion for the industry,” says Matt McDermott, president of Heritage. “Wolf Creek is one of the finest independent distributors in the country and a perfect complement to our existing footprint between Automatic Supply and Aquarius Supply. We are proud to partner together to strategically expand our presence in the Midwest as we kick off the New Year.”
“This year marks Wolf Creek’s 60th anniversary. As we began planning for the next 60 years of business, our leadership team decided it was time to find a partner for the future of the Wolf Creek Company,” says Scott Knowles, CEO of Wolf Creek. “We have a deep commitment to making our customers’ lives easier while creating opportunities for our entire team, which guided our selection of who would carry Wolf Creek into the future. We have found that partner in Heritage. It is with great excitement that Chris and I, along with the entire Wolf Creek team, join the Heritage family, and we cannot wait to see what we’ll accomplish together.”
