Sunset Property Services was established in 1967 and has been family owned and operated ever since. The company was originally located in Monterey Park, California and started with just one ride-along sweeper. In 1970 John Howhannesian took over as president of the company and began laying the foundation to grow Sunset and its capabilities. At the time, the only service Sunset offered was parking lot sweeping, but John’s vision was to expand beyond that. In 1974 Sunset began utilizing truck mounted vacuum sweepers to increase capacity and by 1976 they had added six sweepers to the fleet. In 1978 the company got its first major contract in Orange County which included twenty six properties with the Irvine Company. Sunset’s headquarters was relocated to Orange County, California to better service this new contract and to enable Sunset to further its expansion into the Orange County market. The company continued to grow, signing contracts with other high profile companies, providing multi-service support and gaining respect and trust in Orange County. Another significant milestone was reached in 1993 when John, partnered with TYMCO, introduced the first compressed natural gas (CNG) sweeper. His growing concern for and passion to improve the environment inspired his vision to build a fleet that included alternative fuel vehicles. That vision would continue to evolve as the company grew and after years of utilizing CNG sweepers, Sunset introduced into its fleet its first liquid propane gas (LPG) sweepers in 2009. After 50 years of hard work and dedication, Sunset has grown from a single ride along sweeper into a company that services multiple municipalities, offers a variety of street sweeping and custodial services and includes a fleet of over thirty five vehicles including alternative fuel sweepers. Sunset Property Services is proud to be part of the Orange County community and continues to proudly serve its clients in Orange County, Los Angeles County and the surrounding Southern California area.
