Bartlett Tree Experts Expands in U.S. and Canada
Domestic and international expansion continues to be a priority for Bartlett Tree Experts. As such, the company is pleased to announce the completion of three acquisitions to date in 2008, resulting in new growth opportunities in the U.S. and Canada.
Bartlett has been committed to further developing its presence in Canada since entering the country over ten years ago. The acquisition of Tops Tree Service will aid Bartlett in that goal and help the company build a stronger client base on Southern Vancouver Island.
In the U.S., Bartlett will add a new office as a result of the acquisition of Four Seasons Tree Care. Under this agreement, Bartlett will establish a location in Kenmore, Washington – its first office in this state. The company will also bolster its existing presence in the greater Chicago area through the acquisition of Synnestvedt and Associates.
“These three companies are a great fit with Bartlett, sharing our mission of protecting trees and shrubs and offering excellent growth potential,” said Robert A. Bartlett, Jr., Chairman of Bartlett Tree Experts. “Over the coming months, we’ll be working to provide a seamless transition for customers while also bringing the employees that join us the unique career development and training opportunities that only Bartlett can provide.”
