WICHITA — In a move that could make it the area's largest grounds maintenance company, Complete Landscaping Systems has purchased Green Thumb for almost $1 million.
"It's in a strategic position for sales because they brought in with them some key accounts we were interested in pursuing," says Peter Salmeron, who owns Complete Landscaping.
Green Thumb has $2.6 million in annual sales.
This year, Complete Landscaping had almost $10 million in sales. With the acquisition of some additional national accounts and the purchase of Green Thumb, Salmeron expects sales to double in 2010 to almost $20 million.
Earlier this year, Inc. magazine named Complete Landscaping No. 1,582 on its annual list of the 5,000 fastest-growing private companies in America.
