Surrey-based Grounds Care Group has strengthened its offering in the Thames Valley region having completed its acquisition of Green & Tidy Landscapes Ltd.
As well as Green & Tidy’s client base, Grounds Care Group will also take on all staff members, equipment and facilities, including the Green & Tidy depot in Moulsford, Oxfordshire. The additional infrastructure will enable Grounds Care Group to expand its geographical reach and expertise in a range of grounds care solutions and services, including gritting, grounds maintenance, invasive weed removal, tree works and soft landscaping.
Green & Tidy will continue to trade under its own name across Oxford, Milton Keynes and the wider Thames Valley region and will move under the Grounds Care Group brand from November 2021.
The acquisition is part of a growth strategy by Grounds Care Group, which has bold ambitions to further grow its services across the South of England.
Grounds Care Group CEO Adam Brindle explained: “The acquisition of Green & Tidy is a fantastic opportunity and a significant milestone in our strategy to create a Group offering clients the very best landscape maintenance, invasive weed removal and winter gritting services.
“Both companies and our employees share similar values and a devotion to providing high quality grounds maintenance services and a commitment to customer satisfaction, striving for a long-term relationship with our customers. We pride ourselves on our talented workforce, so we are delighted to welcome the new Green & Tidy team to our Group. As a family business we are proud of the growth and success we have achieved and look forward to continuing our journey of expansion with plans for both organic and acquisition-based growth.”
Green & Tidy Landscapes Ltd MD, Paul Gittus, said: “I am delighted that Green & Tidy has joined the Grounds Care Group family. Their professionalism and innovative approach to landscape maintenance, gives them the leading edge with their advanced communication systems, which I believe will bring great benefits to our customers.”
