The Hoffmann Family of Companies has acquired Hillermann Nursery & Florist in an expansion of the Florida-based company’s agricultural business holdings.
According to the company's newsletter, the Hillermann family does not have a third generation succession plan, and so the family all agreed to the sale when the opportunity to sell arose. Scott Hillermann will remain president, there are no plans for changes and all employees will remain on staff.
"The Hillermann Family and Staff are grateful to the community and customers that have supported the business over all the years. We are excited to continue to offer the high quality products and services that have always been a priority to the family. We hope to continue to see familiar faces and grow the business with the community," Hillermann wrote.
The St. Louis-area independent garden center was No. 89 on Garden Center magazine’s 2021 Top 100 Independent Garden Centers List and just celebrated its 70th anniversary last year. The company was founded by Don Hillermann in 1951 and managed by the family throughout its history. You can read more about Hillermann here.
"It is bittersweet yet very exciting as Hoffmanns are doing wonderful things here in wine country!" said CEO Sandi Hillermann McDonald in an email to Garden Center magazine.
Hillermann Nursery & Florist follows Hoffmann’s acquisition of Town and County Nursery and Ferguson Valley Nurseries over the past year.
