Squire’s Garden Centres announces that D. J. Squire & Co. Ltd has acquired the shares of Barnsfold Nurseries Limited with effect from 1 January 2023.
Sarah Squire, chairman of Squire’s Garden Centres, comments: “Barnsfold Nurseries is a business we have worked with and admired for many years. We very much respect the leadership team at Barnsfold as well as the commitment, knowledge and experience of the whole team. The great plants they grow speak for themselves. We look forward to working with everyone at Barnsfold as, together, we enter a new phase in the history of both companies.
“There is great synergy between the two companies – two long-established horticultural businesses with shared values. We are certain that, together, both businesses will prosper and thrive.”
John Turner, Barnsfold Nurseries Limited, comments: “We have a longstanding relationship with Squire’s as a supplier to their sixteen garden centres. We are delighted that they have become the new owners of the business. We are confident in the next chapter, that being part of the Squire’s Group will bring exciting opportunities to grow together in the future.”
Barnsfold Nurseries Limited will remain a separate company as a wholly owned subsidiary within the Squire’s group. As such it will continue to be business as usual at Barnsfold. The existing Barnsfold management team remains in place and the company is committed to fulfilling all its obligations to its customers going forward and indeed expanding its customer base further in the future.
