Bartlett Tree Experts has acquired the business operations of Tree Medics located in New Orleans, Louisiana. With the addition of this new location, the company now has offices in 26 U.S. States as well as Canada, Ireland and Great Britain.
“This is a great start to 2012. We’re thrilled to work with customers in Orleans and Jefferson Parishes to help maintain their trees and shrubs,” said Greg Daniels, president of Bartlett Tree Experts. “As we move forward, we’ll continue to look for acquisition opportunities like this that promise strong growth and a good fit with our business model.”
This agreement follows other acquisitions that enabled domestic expansion in late 2011 in existing Bartlett locations in Hartford, Connecticut and State College, Pennsylvania. The company also grew internationally after the acquisition of Writtle Park Ltd. in November, serving London and East Anglia.
According to Daniels, acquisitions enable the company to enter new markets and gain clients, but it is the employees of Bartlett that build the customer relationships necessary for sustained growth.
“An acquisition is just the beginning,” he said. “We rely on our people to make each acquisition successful and they continue to deliver.”
