Gothic Landscape, one of the largest privately owned landscape companies in North America, has acquired Orange County, California-based Terra Pacific Landscape, one of the premier landscape service providers to Class A commercial properties in Southern California.
Gothic has been family owned and operated since 1984. Headquartered in Valencia, Calif., with regional offices in Arizona and Nevada, Gothic provides landscape construction and maintenance services. Terra Pacific, founded in 1988, has branch offices in San Diego, Los Angeles and the Inland Empire, and is managed by founder and owner Richard Wingard.
“Our two companies are a perfect fit,” said Jon Georgio, chief executive officer of Gothic Landscape. “We share the cultures of family-owned businesses, we are both focused on the needs of our employees and we both are committed to providing exceptional client service.”
“This acquisition is a significant benefit to Terra’s clients and employees,” said Wingard, who will continue in a senior management role working closely with Ron Georgio, president of Gothic Landscape and chief executive of the maintenance division. “It expands the services and resources available to current Terra customers and provides professional growth and advancement opportunities for our employees. We couldn’t have found a better partner.”
“Our acquisition of Terra furthers our objective to be the best-in-class landscape services provider, extends our maintenance footprint into Orange and San Diego Counties, diversifies our portfolio of services and clients and provides additional synergies, particularly in tree, water and sustainability strategies,” Ron Georgio added. “We welcome Rich and the entire Terra family of employees to our company.”
