HOUSTON, TEXAS (January 30, 2023) – Statesman Corporate Finance, LLC (“Statesman”) is pleased to announce the sale of All Brite Landscape Materials (“All Brite”) to Ewing Irrigation & Landscape Supply, (“Ewing”). Statesman served as the exclusive sell-side financial advisor to All Brite on the transaction.
Founded by Mark Milhon in 1993 as a fencing contractor, All Brite eventually transitioned to a landscape materials supplier and has built its strong local brand on superior customer service and immediately available inventory. All Brite’s 7-acre site in Goodyear, Arizona is one of the largest landscape material supply centers serving the Phoenix/Scottsdale markets, with products including: aggregates, boulders, blocks, pavers, soils, and other landscape/masonry related products.
All Brite joining Ewing combines the strength of a knowledgeable local team with the benefits of Ewing’s corporate abilities to provide greater opportunity for All Brite’s employees and provide its customers with a total landscape solution through a broader product offering.
“The decision on who to sell to was not taken lightly,” Mark Milhon said. “The Statesman team collaborated extensively with us on identifying, vetting, and selecting the right company to make this transition. As a family owned and operated business itself, I am confident Ewing understands the secret-sauce of our success and that my employees and customers will both continue to be well served.Douglas W. York, CEO and President of Ewing said, “The acquisition of All Brite will help us continue to provide exceptional products and services to current and new customers in one of the fastest-growing areas in the country. We are excited to build upon the solid foundation Mark has built and welcome the All Brite team into the Ewing family.”
