The Davey Tree Expert Company has acquired Monteleone Landscaping Company of North Royalton, Ohio. The family-run company, which provides landscape and snow management services throughout the Cleveland area, will join Davey’s Commercial Landscape Services division.
“We’re pleased to welcome this very successful organization to the Davey team,” said George Gaumer, vice president and general manager, commercial landscape services. “They have a strong history of quality service, and the fact that the entire Monteleone team will be joining Davey makes this a very positive development for both organizations.”
Frank, Vito and Pasquale Monteleone, Jr., will serve the branch in leadership positions and Angela Bova will continue as office coordinator. They will continue to serve their current customers throughout the Cleveland market. The company was founded by their father, Pasquale, Sr., in 1976, who recently retired.
Frank Monteleone, who has been named branch manager, points to the similarities between Davey and his company.
“Both started as family businesses and both reflect a commitment to delivering what you promise,” he said. He adds that from the start of discussions with Davey, the Monteleone family was struck by the values the two companies share.
The Davey Company, with U.S. and Canadian operations in 45 states and five provinces, provides a variety of tree services, grounds maintenance, and consulting services for the residential, utility, commercial, and government markets. Founded in 1880, Davey is employee owned and has more than 7,000 employees.
