This move grows the company’s presence in Florida.

The Greenery Inc., Hilton Head Island, South Carolina, acquired Amelia Island, Florida-based Martex Services Landscape Management. This acquisition will allow Martex Services to grow in the greater Amelia Island/Jacksonville market as a division of The Greenery.

“The team at Martex Services is excited about this new relationship working with The Greenery,” says Tom Livingston, president of Martex Services. “Our employees are staying on board and will continue to work hard to preserve our long-standing reputation in the community for the very best landscaping services.”

The Greenery is an employee-owned company with more than 850 employee-owners, which continues to grow with this acquisition.

“A strong connection between The Greenery Inc. and Martex Services is longevity. Each business started in 1973, with both companies thriving through a reputation for superior work and customer satisfaction,” says Lee Edwards, CEO of The Greenery. “We look forward to continuing to provide quality landscape services to the people and businesses of Amelia Island and Jacksonville.”

Martex Services will now operate under the leadership of The Greenery. The leadership team will work closely with Martex, their preexisting management, and their employees over the next several months to ensure a smooth transition.
