The Delaware Valley Floral Group, Inc.

The customers of the Binghamton location will be served through DVFlora’s existing Wilkes-Barre, Pennsylvania location. Salespeople and other key personnel from both locations will be joining DVFlora. Chuck Macuga, President of CPF commented; “We are delighted that the members of our Binghamton and Syracuse staff will be joining DVFlora, a leader in the industry.”
Ken Wilkins, DVFG’s VP of Business Development, commented: “CPF has an excellent reputation for quality and service with the floral customers they serve. We are pleased the salespeople from the Binghamton and Syracuse locations will be joining DVFlora and will be continuing to work in their respective markets. This acquisition strengthens our commitment and expands our footprint in the Mid- Atlantic marketplace. We have had great success over the last few years joining forces with regional wholesale florists. Having the CPF team join DVFlora will make us a stronger company. We remain committed to our successful acquisition strategy and currently are seeking additional opportunities to grow our business through acquisition.”
