Spotlight on Steve Mendez, Owner of Elite Landscaping

How does Mobil Delvac™ diesel engine oil help you succeed?

I depend on Mobil Delvac 1300 Super 15W-40 to ensure the equipment has a long engine life. I’ve used it since I first started the company in 1999. We do some of our maintenance in-house and also use commercial mechanics. I can’t afford an equipment breakdown and when my equipment is running smoothly, so is my business. There’s no substitute for the peace of mind I get by using a high quality, high performance product like Mobil Delvac diesel engine oil.

How do you own your success?

As a Marine Corps veteran, I use the discipline and extreme work ethic I learned in the military to fuel my business success. It’s a tough market and we stand out for our elite craftsmanship and extraordinary customer service. If the customer is not completely satisfied, I will start over from scratch if necessary. Our slogan —“Working Hard with Pride and Integrity” — perfectly sums up our company culture. Most of our business comes from referrals so every job is a potential marketing tool. I am very detail focused and put in the hard work needed to exceed customer expectations. In a tough market, it’s the relationships you build that keep you going when other landscape businesses fail.
