Turfsoil is a long-established Kent-based grounds maintenance contractor.
Will Clark, MD, Gavin Jones said: "We are delighted to confirm this, our latest acquisition. Turfsoil has forward orders of £20m to the end of 2025 comprising significant grounds maintenance contracts. With the added benefit of some exceptional people working within the business, we very much look forward to welcoming them to the Gavin Jones’ team".
John Newton, grandson of Turfsoil’s founder commented: "It is always a wrench to sell a family owned company, especially one with such a proud record of public service for over 70 years. However, with no family member to succeed, I am very happy to see the company pass into the safe hands of Gavin Jones, an organisation with very similar values and standards of service to our own."
He added: "I am confident that those employees that have served me so well for so long are going to a good home, where their career prospects will be positively enhanced."
