Green Thumb Lawn & Garden and Sun Coast Trailers Manufacturing Acquired by Sunbelt Diversified Enterprises, LLC

Sunbelt Diversified Enterprises, LLC is pleased to announce it has acquired Green Thumb Lawn & Garden, a leading professional landscape equipment sales and service center, and Sun Coast Trailers Manufacturing, providing high quality custom utility and equipment trailers. Both companies are located in Broward County, Florida and provide a one-stop-shop for professional landscape companies. Combined sales of both companies exceed $14 million.

Founded in 1975, Green Thumb sells and services the leading landscaping equipment brands of John Deere, Dixie Chopper, Scag, Stihl, Husqvarna and many others. Green Thumb has a strong reputation for outstanding customer service and repairs resulting in a high retention rate of its customers. A highly experienced in-store staff arranges equipment financing from third party finance companies; customers can be signed, sealed and ready to go in as little as 15 minutes.

A new 29,000 square foot facility houses a state-of-the-art show room, repair shop and the Sun Coast trailer manufacturing operation. Sun Coast is a premier manufacturer of high quality custom enclosed utility and equipment trailers and truck bodies for the landscaping industry.

Green Thumb Lawn and Garden and Sun Coast Trailers were founded by the Beisterfeld Family, whose knowledge and 30+ year devotion to their customers have made the company the largest Broward-based equipment supplier to the fast-growing professional landscape industry. John Beisterfeld and Joseph Beisterfeld, Jr. have signed long-term employment agreements to continue to run the company as CEO and Vice President, respectively.
