Following the acquisition, Barenbrug UK and the Watson group of companies will continue to function as separate identities. They will maintain the same business relationships and ensure customers continue to receive the high-quality services they are used to, while benefiting from each other’s expertise.
Johnny Watson, founder and owner Watson Group: “I’m delighted to see Watson Group acquired by a company that truly understands our business. This is a meeting of minds between two companies with a shared commitment to excellence in grass. With Barenbrug’s formidable resources – global R&D, genetic know-how and technical support – we’ll be able to address even more of our customers’ challenges and opportunities. An exciting chapter lies ahead!”
Paul Johnson, Managing Director Barenbrug UK: “We are very proud to welcome Watson Group to the Barenbrug family! Barenbrug UK’s acquisition of Watson Group reflects the strength of our long-standing relationship, and the close alignment of our ethos and values. Making Watson Group part of our company will significantly enhance our offering in Scotland, adding to our existing locations and strengthening our position across the UK. As such, it’s a major milestone for our growing UK business!”
