St. Louis Composting, Inc., the region’s largest producer of STA-certified compost, mulch products and soil blends, has acquired Lawn-Corps. Family owned and operated for 27 years, Lawn-Corps is the only green waste company in South Kansas City. The acquisition will leverage the equipment that St. Louis Composting already has and increase the volumes of finished mulches and composting.
“Lawn-Corps is a great addition to our company and firms up our commitment to Kansas City, expanding our reach in the Midwest,” said Patrick Geraty, President of St. Louis Composting. “We will increase operational and production efficiencies as well as the amounts of compost, mulch and soil blend resources being supplied to the region.”
St. Louis Composting acquired Lawn-Corps through its operating company Organic Resource Management. They are not new to the region as they operate a location in Lee Summit, Missouri. Originally a $25 million company, St. Louis Composting will grow by $1.5 million with the acquisition.
Lawn-Corps is a 37-acre yard waste processing facility in Belton, Missouri that collects and processes yard waste into high-grade products such as compost and organically dyed mulches. Since 1992, Lawn-Corps has been providing Kansas City homeowners with reliable yard waste collection. The facility is state-permitted and in compliance with the Missouri Department of Natural Resources. Serving approximately 3,500 households in the Kansas City region, Lawn-Corps will continue to operate under its name and its staff of eight employees will stay onboard.
“St. Louis Composting wants to provide Kansas City with the same high-end soil mix that the St. Louis region receives,” said Geraty. “This new partnership will allow us to do that and expand our customer base, ultimately promoting the many benefits of compost to a greater volume of Missourians.”
