MMC Land Management is a second generation family-owned and operated land management company that has grown from a small landscape and outdoor services company to a full-scale commercial operation.
The name MMC is derived from the first initials of the three sons of owner Harry Platt, who started in the landscaping industry in 1982, along with his wife Roseann Platt and father-in-law John Frasca. The oldest twin sons, Michael and Mark, both graduates of Washington and Jefferson College, developed a passion for the industry while growing up and working for their father during summer vacations. After pursuing other interests in banking and real estate, Michael and Mark longed for an entrepreneurial challenge, which brought them back full circle to the landscaping industry.
Christopher, the youngest of Harry’s son, joined the company after receiving his bachelor’s degree from Robert Morris University. He, as well, developed a passion for the industry while working for the company during summer vacations. Michael, Mark and Christopher manage the direction of growth and the overall company, with Mark overseeing sales and account management and Michael and Christopher directing the operations.
In 2008, Harry’s company was rebranded as MMC Land Management. It has grown to more than 80 employees who work out of three locations. MMC has expanded to offer a diversified list of services: landscape maintenance, landscape installation, snow removal, compost filter sock manufacturing, erosion control and homebuilder services.
Today, MMC Land Management still operates with the same small business approach as Harry Platt did in 1982 but has the capability to complete the largest commercial projects. No matter the size of MMC, we realize that the strength of the company resides in the day-to-day interaction with our customers. We maintain close professional relationships with each client and our management team is always available to ensure that each job is completed to the client’s satisfaction.
