Systems began in 1972, with its headquarters in Dallas. Rather than rushing to
market to sell products, SBS spent considerable time
and resources on R&D. After consistent and desirable results
were obtained, SBS was open for business.
Many of the
lessons learned during this initial research period were in fact
contrary to the common wisdom of the day. Interestingly, as the
years passed, many of the early concepts conveyed by SBS were eventually
adopted within the compost industry.
Over the years,
SBS witnessed countless composting companies come and go. SBS weathered
the storms by staying true to its original objective - producing
only quality products. This guiding principal allowed SBS to endure
the test of time. Likewise, conscientious landscapers came to realize
that the performance of the installed plants was totally dependent
upon the quality of the surrounding soil. Furthermore, the success
and survival of the landscapers’ business would eventually
hinge on this same realization.
As the years
went on, SBS had many satellite locations around North Texas, including
composting yards in Boyce, Talty, Howard, Roundrock, Five Points,
Grifith Switch, and Hillsboro.
In 1993 SBS
opened its current and main processing center in Dallas. This new
location allowed SBS to better serve the landscaping community in
and around the Metroplex. Since that time, additional landscape
architects and quality conscious landscapers have found SBS by word
of mouth. As a result, SBS has steadily grown and expanded. Through
the 1990’s and into the new millennium, SBS’s reputation
for delivering quality and results has continued to gain momentum.
As evidence of this, when landscapers are doing work at their own
home, they consistently buy from SBS – this is a powerful
testament to SBS’s true success.
For years SBS
has been the best-kept secret in the landscaping community. SBS
is now increasing its scope by introducing a wider array of products
and services, and raising its visibility to a broader audience.
The principles and quality products that got SBS to where it is
today will continue to guide it into the future.
