Bay Shore-based LandTek Group has acquired Carlson Fence, headquartered in Miami, for $10 million. 

Additional terms of the deal were not disclosed. 

Carlson, a provider of commercial fencing for the construction industry, will now operate as LTG Carlson Fence. The company has 55 employees and offers a wide variety of products, including chain link, ornamental, security, construction and athletic fencing. 

“The $10M acquisition of Carlson Fence strengthens our position in growing the Florida market,” Mike Ryan, LandTek Group’s president and founder, said in a company statement. “We are providing customers our expertise and our turnkey approach to sports fields and facility construction. Having Carlson Fence as a part of the LandTek family enables us to offer additional options for our growing client base up and down the east coast of the United States.” 

Eric Davis, former owner of Carlson Fence and now the regional vice president of LTG Carlson Fence, called Ryan and the LandTek team trend setters and innovators in the athletic facility construction industry. 

“Their experience, combined with our knowledge of the education, government and commercial market in Florida, positions us for strong growth in the years to come,” Davis said in the statement. 

This is the second company in South Florida acquired by LandTek. In Oct. 2018, LandTek acquired Sports Turf One, a Boynton Beach-based builder of synthetic athletic turf fields. 

LandTek, a provider of synthetic athletic turf and sports field construction services to educational institutions, governments and professional teams, now employs 300 people across 13 states.
