Terms of the deal were not disclosed.
Bissett is a 53-year-old family business with locations in Holtsville and Dix Hills that distributes nursery supplies and equipment. SiteOne plans to maintain both of Bissett’s Long Island locations, which cover nearly 50 acres of land. SiteOne was formerly known as John Deere Landscapes before changing its name when it went public in May.
SiteOne, which has more than 465 locations across North America, is a distributor of wholesale irrigation, landscape lighting, nursery, hardscapes, maintenance products and supplies for the green industry and golf and turf care professionals.
In a company statement, Doug Black, SiteOne CEO, said Bissett is a terrific fit with SiteOne on Long Island.
“Both Bissett Nursery and Bissett Equipment are clear market leaders and they complement our existing business in the agronomics, irrigation, and outdoor lighting markets,” Black said in the statement. “Joining forces with the Bissett team makes us the largest supplier of all landscaping supplies, material and equipment to green industry professionals on Long Island and in New York City.”
Attorneys Christine Malafi, Alan Weinberg, Arthur Yermash, and Vincent Costa of Ronkonkoma-based Campolo, Middleton & McCormick represented Bissett in the deal, along with selling agent Bruce Newman of Protegrity Advisors.
