The Greenery, Inc., a regional commercial landscape services company based in Hiltonhead, South Carolina, has acquired Amelia Island-based Martex Services Landscape Management. Martex Services will operate as a division of The Greenery serving the greater Amelia Island/Jacksonville market and continue to provide commercial landscape services to resorts and hotels, office parks and gated communities of northeast Florida.
“The team at Martex Services is excited about this new relationship working with The Greenery,” said Tom Livingston, President of Martex Services, Inc. “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.”
Over the past 50 years, The Greenery has grown into one of the largest and most respected landscaping companies in the Southeast. As an employee-owned company, The Greenery has flourished to over 850 employee-owners, and continues to grow with this acquisition. Employee ownership and investing in their people has proven to be the catalyst for gaining a successful position as a thriving leader in the landscaping industry.
“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,” stated Lee Edwards, CEO of The Greenery, Inc. “We look forward to continuing to provide quality landscape services to the people and businesses of Amelia Island and Jacksonville.”
The Greenery offers comprehensive landscaping services to commercial customers. The Greenery has been a principal business in the South Carolina Lowcountry since 1973 and is proud to be an employee-owned company for the past 12 years. They have received many awards and accolades for customer service, and were recently listed as one of the Top 30 landscape companies in the nation by Lawn & Landscape magazine and Landscape Management magazine.
Martex Services will now operate under the leadership of The Greenery, Inc. The leadership team will work closely with Martex, their preexisting management, and their employees over the next several months to ensure a smooth transition.
