Hullson Partners has partnered with Hidden River Strategic Capital on an investment in Realty Landscaping, a full-service provider of commercial landscaping services to a variety of end markets and customers.
Headquartered in Newtown, Pa., Realty was founded in 1985 to serve the growing need for quality, service-oriented landscape construction. Today, Realty is one of the largest privately held landscape contracting firms and offers an array of services including landscape design, maintenance, irrigation and lighting and snow removal. The company employs more than 150 individuals and operates out of four locations throughout the Pennsylvania and New Jersey markets.
“We are beyond excited to partner with the Hullson and Hidden River teams,” says Realty CEO Kevin Craig. “It was critically important that we find partners that shared our vision of building a technology driven landscaping platform. The partnership with Hullson and Hidden River provides us the opportunity to build on our legacy by executing on our ambitious growth strategy and will enable us to better develop our team and service our valued customers.”
“Realty is an exceptional company with a strong foundation of client service and we are excited to partner with them for the next phase of growth,” adds Sam Henderson, partner and co-founder of Hullson Partners. “This is a tremendous opportunity to continue to build upon the Realty platform by accelerating the Company’s acquisition strategy, leveraging the existing suite of technology to further expand service offerings, and growing the geographic footprint. We look forward to working closely with Kevin and Hidden River to capitalize on these growth goals.”
“It was clear from our first conversations with Kevin that our investing principles aligned closely with Realty’s core values. Like us, they are committed to building a company with an extreme emphasis on investing in people and culture,” says Michael Hullings, partner and co-founder of Hullson.
The partnership with Realty is an extension of Hullson’s broader thesis on the commercial and residential services industry. Hullson will support Realty through both organic and inorganic growth strategies that leverage the Company’s technology to continue delivering best-in-class service to its customers.
