WESTLAKE VILLAGE, Cali. — Sperber Landscape Companies has added Bemus Landscape . The partnership marks Sperber’s return to the Southern California region, where ValleyCrest was founded by Burt Sperber over 70 years ago.
Headquartered in Orange County, California, Bemus was founded by Bill Bemus in 1973 and provides commercial landscape services in the areas of Orange County, San Diego, and the Inland Empire.
“The Sperber partnership creates an exciting new chapter for the company my family has carefully built throughout the last six decades," said Bill Bemus, who retired from day to day operations in 2017. "We have a longstanding relationship with the Sperber Family, and I feel confident and comfortable joining forces with them for this next phase of Bemus’ growth.”
Bill Bemus’s three sons (Colin Bemus, Corin Bemus, and Spencer Bemus) will continue active leadership of the company. As a result of the Sperber partnership, they will now be shareholders in the company.
“When evaluating a variety of potential partners, it was important for us to choose a parent company that had a deep understanding of the nuances of our industry,” said Bemus CEO Corin Bemus. “Sperber’s seven decades of experience in landscaping reinforces our confidence that this partnership will allow us to retain our culture, treat our employees well, and take care of our clients properly.”
"We are excited at the opportunity to partner with the Bemus Family and work towards the shared vision of becoming Southern California’s leading landscape service provider,” said Managing Partner Richard Sperber. “We not only view Southern California as a market of unmatched growth, but it is also where we call ‘home.'”
Bemus was exclusively represented by CCG Advisors, an Atlanta based investment banking firm.
"We are thrilled to have been a part of this deal bringing together two families whose names are synonymous with southern California commercial landscape maintenance," said CCG Managing Partner, Brian Corbett.
