Swingle was recently recognized by Lawn & Landscape magazine as one of the largest landscape companies in North America.
Swingle Lawn, Tree & Landscape Care ranked 71 on the 2015 Lawn & Landscape Top 100 list, which was published in May and sponsored by Toro. This prestigious list showcases the largest firms in North America.
“Our Top 100 list includes some of the best and brightest leaders in the landscape industry,” says Lawn & Landscape Editor and Associate Publisher Chuck Bowen. “These companies have achieved a level of growth that very few others can claim.”
The Lawn & Landscape Top 100 is based on 2014 revenue from landscape profit centers, and is reported by each company listed. Companies on the Top 100 list earned total revenue in 2014 of $8,026,808,707. That’s $776,283,627 more than in 2013 – an increase of 11 percent. Companies on the list reported total employment (seasonal plus year-round employees) of 86,255 people. The list comprises 97 companies in 31 states and three firms in Canada.
“We’re proud to sponsor this annual ranking that recognizes landscape contractors who are at the top of their industry,” says David Alkire, vice president, residential and landscape contractor businesses at the Toro Company. “Innovative thinking is key to growth, and we support companies like these that are finding new ways to be successful every day.”
This year’s list was compiled by Lawn & Landscape editors during the spring of 2015.
