The partnership marks Sperber’s return to the Southern California region, where ValleyCrest was founded by Burt Sperber over 70 years ago. Headquartered in Orange County, California, Bemus was founded by Bill Bemus in 1973 and provides commercial landscape services in the areas of Orange County, San Diego, and the Inland Empire. “The Sperber partnership creates an exciting new chapter for the company my family has carefully built throughout the last six decades," said Bill Bemus, who retired from day to day operations in 2017. "We have a longstanding relationship with the Sperber Family, and I feel confident and comfortable joining forces with them for this next phase of Bemus’ growth.”
Bill Bemus’s three sons (Colin Bemus, Corin Bemus, and Spencer Bemus) will continue active leadership of the company. As a result of the Sperber partnership, they will now be shareholders in the company. “When evaluating a variety of potential partners, it was important for us to choose a parent company that had a deep understanding of the nuances of our industry,” said Bemus CEO Corin Bemus. “Sperber’s seven decades of experience in landscaping reinforces our confidence that this partnership will allow us to retain our culture, treat our employees well, and take care of our clients properly.”
"We are excited at the opportunity to partner with the Bemus Family and work towards the shared vision of becoming Southern California’s leading landscape service provider,” said Managing Partner Richard Sperber. “We not only view Southern California as a market of unmatched growth, but it is also where we call ‘home. '”
Bemus was exclusively represented by CCG Advisors, an Atlanta based investment banking firm. "We are thrilled to have been a part of this deal bringing together two families whose names are synonymous with southern California commercial landscape maintenance," said CCG Managing Partner, Brian Corbett. The presentation will include detailed information about lithium-ion battery technology and how users can extend equipment run times with Gravely, Inventus Power and Delta-Q's systems. The webinar will also highlight the advantages of electric solutions and how they improve productivity and share essential charging and maintenance tips for Gravely’s commercial electric mowers. “We are excited to co-present this webinar to provide valuable insight about the benefits of lithium-ion battery technology,” said Conway Hui, director of sales application engineering & customer support of Delta-Q Technologies. “There’s a growing and necessary synergy between battery and charger manufacturers to help scale innovation required to design and develop the equipment of the future. We’re confident attendees will gain valuable knowledge about the benefits of lithium-ion solutions and how best to charge these batteries.”
Landscape contractors and their customers in attendance will learn insights about the concept of Gravely’s FusionCore solution and Pro-Turn electric mower, the benefits of lithium-ion power outlined by Inventus Power and an overview of how to properly charge lithium-ion batteries demonstrated by Delta-Q. “Educational webinars, especially ones co-presented with companies that understand the technical requirements of the industry, can help the industry as a whole gain a better understanding of where EV equipment is now and where we're going," said Angie Ansorge, product manager of Gravely Commercial. “We’re proud to work closely with these manufacturers and play a role in this webinar.”
“It’s exciting to see a growing shift towards lithium-ion battery technology as more industries become aware of its benefits and total cost of ownership," said Tom Nguyen, VP business development at Inventus Power. "We're looking forward to teaming up with Gravely and Delta-Q to help educate the lawn & garden industry about the key advantages of lithium-ion battery power over internal combustion engine and lead-acid battery technology.”
