Four member companies of Landscape Ontario were recipients of awards by Snow and Ice Management Association (SIMA).

Total Facility Solutions and Clintar Groundskeeping Services, both of London, and Markham Property Services, were all safety award winners, while Snow Logic Snow and Ice Management of Kleinburg was awarded the Business Excellence Award. The award was handed out this summer in Louisville, Ky. at the annual SIMA symposium.

Snow Logic is a division of 4 All Seasons, a company that provides property maintenance, landscape design and build to the industrial, commercial, retail and high-end residential markets. The competition for the award included a large number of American companies.   

Snow Logic president Mark Scida began the company in 1988 with a push lawnmower and an after-school grass cutting schedule. Over the past 20 years, Scida has grown the company to its present size that has over 30 team members and increased sales of over 500 per cent.

Recently the snow and ice management side of the business has grown to the point where Scida has brought on a partner, Richard Faccio, in an effort to manage the new growth and maintain the high level of customer service.

Over the past three years, Snow Logic was able to capitalize on Mother Nature’s unpredictability by offering its customers specific solutions, such as specialty snowplows, to drastically reduce costs.

“When the opportunity to win an award that promotes business excellence was presented, we jumped on it,” said Scida.

“It was a real honour to win the business excellence award and share it with the Snow Logic team and our customers. We are very excited about our business model and hope to increase our customer base by continuing to give service that goes beyond their expectations,” said Scida.
