Landscape Workshop has moved north into Kentucky through a merger with Lexington’s Henkel Denmark. Landscape Workshop is based in Birmingham, Alabama, and is a portfolio company of McKinney Capital.
Here is the press release announcing the merger:
BIRMINGHAM, Ala. (Jan. 16, 2018) – Landscape Workshop recently completed the acquisition of Henkel Denmark, based in Lexington, Ky. With this expansion into Kentucky, Landscape Workshop will now have nine branch locations throughout the Southeast.
Henkel Denmark was founded by Bill Henkel and Gordon Denmark in 1999. In addition to commercial landscape maintenance, Henkel Denmark’s diverse portfolio also includes residential landscape maintenance, as well as a landscape construction division.
“We think our customers and employees will benefit from the investments in systems, sales and marketing, and scale that Landscape Workshop brings to the table,” said Bill Henkel. “We were introduced to Landscape Workshop by a mutual customer and were excited by their commitment to professionalism and customer service, as well as their strong value driven culture, which are the foundations on which we built Henkel Denmark. It was important that we find a partner that possesses the same driving values of integrity and performance, and one that makes considerable investments in the development of their team. Landscape Workshop was a perfect fit.” said Gordon Denmark.
Henkel and Denmark will both stay on at the combined firm, with Denmark becoming general manager of Lexington Maintenance and Henkel becoming general manager of Lexington Construction.
“We are pleased to have Gordon and Bill and their employees joining our team,” said Landscape Workshop Chief Operating Officer Paul Young. “This merger brings Landscape Workshop into the Kentucky market and adds to our existing operations in Alabama, Tennessee, Mississippi, and Arkansas.”
