BrightView has acquired TDE Group, a snow removal and commercial landscaping company headquartered in suburban Detroit with operations in Windsor, Ontario. Terms of the transaction were not disclosed.
TDE Group is the 34th firm to be purchased by BrightView under its long-term acquisition growth strategy.
“BrightView continues to execute on our ‘strong-on-strong’ acquisition program in which we actively seek out exceptional businesses to expand our existing operations in attractive markets. Bringing TDE under the BrightView umbrella allows us to grow in a profitable market and bring highly trained and motivated team members into the company,” said Andrew Masterman, BrightView president and CEO.
In addition to snow removal, TDE Group provides landscaping maintenance services in the Detroit/Windsor metropolitan areas and beyond. Among TDE’s most prominent clients are auto manufacturers and the Detroit Metro Airport. TDE employs more than 125 people.
“The addition of TDE Group and their skilled crews is a great enhancement to our operations in the Upper Midwest,” said Jamie Gollotto, president of BrightView Maintenance Services Seasonal Division. “Their expertise in both winter services and landscaping makes them a perfect year-round complement for our existing branches in this important region.”
“TDE Group is happy to have become part of the BrightView family," said Eddie Conte, TDE’s president and CEO. "This partnership will provide our employees with significant growth opportunities both in the USA and Canada. Our clients will continue to enjoy our meticulous self-performed approach to snow removal with a larger depth and breadth of landscape service offerings that far exceed what TDE could have done on its own.”
