06 June 2017
DTE Corporate Finance is delighted to announce that they advised on the sale of Countrywide Grounds Maintenance Limited and Countrywide Garden Maintenance Services Limited (“Countrywide”) to The Dwyer Group (“Dwyer”).
With its Head Office based in Cheadle, Manchester, Countrywide offers a range of commercial grass cutting, landscape maintenance, sports grounds maintenance and winter gritting services.
Founded by Martin Stott in 1985, he and his family have grown the business into a nationwide provider of grounds maintenance with over 50 franchisees.
Dwyer is a portfolio company of The Riverside Company, the global private equity firm. The deal marks the 10th acquisition for Dwyer which now has 19 service based brands with over 2,850 franchisees across North America, UK and Germany.
Corporate Finance advice was provided to the vendor by Matt Beckley and Alex Wilson of our Corporate Finance Team.
Matt commented; “It has been a pleasure working with the Stott family on a transaction which is a testament to the hard work they have put into the business over the last 30 years. The business provides the perfect platform for Dwyer to continue to increase their global footprint in the service based sector.”
