ABOUT OUR TEAM
Ofer Winkler is the founding partner of Land-Con Ltd. Descending from a very hard working immigrant family, at the young age of 16, Ofer decided he wanted to financially help his family and always visualized being financially independent. He knocked on neighborhood doors offering lawn mowing services in his community. He was not afraid of rolling up his sleeves and working hard. That was the beginning of Winkler Landscaping. Ofer accumulated many customers in the neighbourhood and began using some of his profits to buy advanced equipment and then hiring employees to keep up with the demand. By the young age of 25 He had a staff of 25 employees and over 1000 customers, a very successful business that he built with his own two hands. While he missed out on many trips and adventures with family and friends, he developed a sizeable company which he sold in his twenties and pivoted to pursue a career in landscape construction projects.
Ofer’s passion for the business has allowed him to be creative and versatile in growing the business to new heights. After a decade in the business, Ofer’s vision was to push the envelope and change the way in which people view the industry through innovative design, skillful workmanship, and impeccable customer service. He knew it was too much to take on alone whilst managing all of his ongoing projects. It was then that Ofer and Jeremy Lerner, who was a close childhood friend and esteemed colleague in the industry realized that they share the same vision, dedication and unstoppable drive for success. In 2010, they Co-founded Land-Con Ltd, and the rest is history….

Supreme Stone, a landscaping company Jeremy grew into a lucrative business in just a few years. He always believed in hard work, had no tolerance for complaining . When things needed to get done he would be the first one to get his own hands dirty, working alongside his employees, ensuring that every step was executed impeccably, which earned their respect.
Jeremy is a perfectionist, which was always an immense advantage to his clients. He has high demands of himself and his employees to provide top workmanship and impeccable customer service, which is the reason his business grew so quickly.

A company with immaculate workmanship, innovative ground breaking designs and a company that would set a new industry standard. It was then that he decided to partner up with co-founder, Ofer Winkler, a childhood friend and esteemed colleague. Together, they created Land-Con Ltd.
