Inscape, a sports ground engineering company based in South Wales, has acquired Bedfordshire-based Evergreen Irrigation, a deal advised on by GS Verde Group.
The acquisition will strengthen Inscape's irrigation offering, gaining access to new markets and additional services that will benefit Inscape's existing customer base including sporting clubs, golf courses and royal palaces. All Evergreen Irrigation staff will be retained and the company will continue to operate under the Evergreen name.
Gareth Rees, managing director of Inscapes said: "We are delighted to have completed the purchase of Evergreen Irrigation and we see this as an important step forward for the company as we strengthen our team and our overall offering. It's a fantastic opportunity for us to grow into new markets and provide existing clients with new services while offering Evergreen customers an enhanced experience."
"Evergreen Irrigation has been a leader in its field for almost 30 years, and has set the standard for designing, supplying, and maintaining quality water systems. This complements our existing offering perfectly and will help us to future-proof our business as we continue to provide industry leading services to sports grounds and other commercial and private land owners.
"We are excited to be working with Evergreen Irrigation and its dedicated team of staff going forwards, and we would like to thank Jeremy Green for his support in this purchase."
Jeremy Green, managing director of Evergreen Irrigation, said: "We are pleased to announce the purchase of Evergreen Irrigation by Inscapes, one of the leading businesses in the sector.
"With this purchase I am confident that the future of Evergreen Irrigation and its fantastic staff are in the very best of hands moving forwards. I am incredibly proud of everything Evergreen Irrigation has achieved in its almost 30 years of business and it has been a privilege to oversee the company as it has grown from strength to strength. I wish the team every success for the future."
