Silver Oak Services Partners leads recapitalization of Beary Landscaping

Silver Oak Services Partners, LLC, a private equity firm, led the recapitalization of Beary Landscaping in partnership with management.

Founded in 1985 and headquartered in Lockport, Illinois, Beary is a provider of recurring landscaping and snow removal services to commercial end markets, including utilities, multi-family living communities, office buildings, municipalities and others.  Beary serves more than 1,200 customers across Illinois, Indiana, Pennsylvania, Michigan and Wisconsin.

Silver Oak invested alongside Beary’s founder and CEO, Brian Beary, and other senior management in the transaction.  Existing management team members will continue in their current roles with Beary and retain a significant ownership stake in the business.

“For 35-plus years, Beary has served as a trusted partner to our customers, maintaining best-in-class landscapes that enrich the environment.  We are excited about our partnership with Silver Oak, which provides us with additional capital and expertise needed to significantly grow the company, while continuing to provide high-quality service to our customers,” said Brian Beary, CEO of Beary.

Andrew Gustafson, partner at Silver Oak, said, “We believe the company is a strong platform from which to grow due to its excellent reputation, tenured employee base, service-oriented culture and experienced management team.  We look forward to leveraging the company’s strengths while further investing in people, infrastructure and sales as Beary continues to grow in new and existing markets.” 

Beary is actively looking for add-on acquisition opportunities.
