Next month marks the 39th anniversary of McAdam Landscaping, which means our business has been around longer than most people have been alive, including me!
That longevity doesn’t happen by accident. Through hard work and teamwork, we have beaten the odds; most businesses don’t last four years, let alone nearly four decades. Much of the credit for our endurance in a field of here-today, gone-tomorrow outfits goes to my father, Scott, and uncle, Rob. They launched the business in their early 20s, grew the business with the aid of a dedicated and skillful staff, and continue as active operational leaders in our day-to-day success.
But none of it would be possible without the trust placed in us by our clients, from the first ones who took a chance on a newcomer to our current customers. It is especially satisfying to note that some of those first clients from nearly 40 years ago still depend on us.
Grateful for the impact we have been able to make for our employees, clients and the communities where we serve, we approach 2018 with anticipation and excitement for what’s to come. From all of us at McAdam: heartfelt wishes to you and your loved ones for a happy holiday season!
