Landscape supply distributor SiteOne Landscape Supply Inc. (NYSE: SITE), Roswell, Georgia, announced this week that it has acquired Burnco Landscape Centres Inc., a wholly owned subsidiary of Burnco Rock Products Ltd. Financial terms of the deal weren’t disclosed.
Burnco serves the three western Canadian provinces of British Columbia, Alberta and Saskatchewan from 12 locations focused on the distribution of hardscapes and landscape supplies to landscape professionals.
“Burnco Landscape Centres is a market leader in Western Canada and a great fit with SiteOne as they expand our product offering in these provinces to include hardscapes and landscape supplies, complementing our growing irrigation and agronomics presence there,” said Doug Black, chairman and CEO of SiteOne Landscape Supply. “This addition moves us strongly forward on our mission to be the best full-line distributor to landscape professionals in all major U.S. and Canadian markets.”
Scott Burns, chairman and CEO of Burnco Rock Products, added: “The Burnco organization has developed a strong relationship at the leadership level with SiteOne over a number of years. We believe SiteOne acquiring our landscape supply business opens a new and winning chapter for the landscape centres’ employees, customers and suppliers in Western Canada. We expect SiteOne will be an excellent owner for the business and look forward to continuing to work closely with them in future.”
