Brickman enters LA market with acquisition

Industry News

The company bought Dworsky Cos. to expand its reach in Southern California.

| June 2, 2011

LOS ANGELES – The Brickman Group has acquired Los Angeles-based Dworsky Cos., a market-leading commercial landscape services firm. Brickman, the third largest company according to Lawn & Landscape's Top 100 ranking, already has a presence in the San Diego market, as well as in 30 states across the country; this deal will give the company a foothold in one of the last major markets it has yet to serve. 

Dworsky Landscape Services was founded in 2002, by Dave Dworsky, a 20-year industry veteran. Over the past several years, Dworsky has created an expansive footprint serving the greater Los Angeles area, leading the market with award-winning landscapes at some of Southern California’s most prestigious properties, including Hughes Center, Sun America and Nestle’s.

With several national and regional clients requesting service for their portfolios in the Los Angeles area, Brickman identified Dworsky Landscape Services as the best choice for a local partner to ensure continued quality and value to Brickman’s Los Angeles-area clients.

“My team prides itself on providing personalized best-in-class service to our customers,” said Dave Dworsky. “This merger will allow us to take that next step to not only continue providing the best service and value, but to improve our ability to serve our market by taking advantage of the refined processes and resources that Brickman brings to the table, as well as professional growth opportunities for my team.”

“The Dworsky team has impressed me with the energy and passion they bring to their work,” said Mike Bogan, Brickman’s executive vice president. “They have an excellent reputation in the market and the same strong set of values and service ethic as we do. I am confident the integration will be seamless, and I’m proud to have this leadership team creating the Brickman brand in the greater Los Angeles market.”

Existing Brickman clients with locations in the Los Angeles area will now receive the same Brickman service seen at their other locations, while Dworsky customers will benefit from the enhanced resources (equipment, training, best practices, etc.) that Brickman offers. With eleven branches from San Diego to the Inland Empire and four locations in the Los Angeles metro area, the combined company footprint will serve virtually all of Southern California, as Brickman continues to expand on the West Coast and throughout the country.
