Agrovista acquires Terra Firma for its amenity division


Article taken from AgriTradeNews, Issue 25. 


Agronomy services company Agrovista UK has bought the Terra Firma (Scotland) business to integrate into its Sherriff Amenity turf and landscaping division.

Stirling-based Terra Firma was established by Simon Gough in 2000, and has grown into one of Scotland’s largest suppliers to the amenity and local authority markets.

Agrovista is to combine the two operations in Scotland under Mr Gough’s leadership and the Sherriff brand. It says the integration of the existing technical expertise and broad product ranges into a single business will provide land managers, local authorities, contractors, groundsmen and greenkeepers in Scotland with a full agronomy service, research-driven advice, new product innovation and access to an extensive local distribution network.

“We are delighted to welcome Simon and his team from Terra Firma into Sherriff Amenity,” says Agrovista managing director Chris Clayton. “The acquisition will strengthen the business in Scotland and provide synergies across the business which will ultimately benefit our customers. This, combined with further product developments, will generate exciting opportunities from the combined business.”

Mr Gough adds: “Terra Firma joining with Sherriff Amenity is a really exciting prospect. The combination of both companies’ industry knowledge, experience and customer service ethos will form a strong, sustainable and service focused business model moving forward.”
