Yard-Nique recently acquired Estes Landscape in Sharpsburg Ga., and will mark the company’s third acquisition in five years. Estes posted $3.5 million in revenue in 2014 and employs 35 people.
“Rob Estes built an amazing company around his talented team,” said Brian DuMont, owner of the Morrisville, N.C.-based Yard-Nique. “Atlanta was not on our radar at the time it was brought to our attention but after meeting Rob Estes and his team we were eager to pursue.”
Dumont said he will keep the Estes name for now, and eventually roll the company into Yard-Nique’s operations. DuMont said that acquisitions will continue to play an intricate part of Yard-Nique’s growth plans.
“Acquisitions along with internal growth are vital to continued growth,” he said. “Every situation is different and we believe both are needed in order to be diversified.”
