Acquisition sees idverde expand its green services portfolio

Green services provider, idverde, has acquired Acorn Environmental Management Group, specialists in arboriculture and landscape management services in the Midlands. This strategic move bolsters idverde’s capabilities and enhances its service offerings, marking a significant milestone in its growth trajectory.

Headquartered in Redditch, Acorn Environmental Management Group is known for its comprehensive range of expert services, including tree surgery, arboriculture consultancy, landscaping, rope access, vegetation clearance, ecological mitigation, and the control of invasive and noxious weeds.

With annual sales of approximately £11 million, Acorn employs approximately 100 employees who manage several high-profile contracts throughout the Midlands. This acquisition not only strengthens idverde’s arboriculture expertise but also provides complementary services to existing clients and expands idverde’s ability to self-deliver arboriculture services.

Together, Acorn and idverde UK become a leading European Arb business with key sector credentials. The partnership will open greater opportunities to tender for more work, successfully addressing a large and growing market and provides wider solutions to customers while generating employee growth.

Kristian Lennard, CEO of idverde UK, commented: “We are pleased to welcome our new colleagues from Acorn Environmental Management Group into idverde. The company has been developed on strong foundations and is underpinned by innovation and a focus on training and development of their services. This has resulted in long-term contracts being secured with several key high-profile clients.”

Kevin O’Rouke, Owner of Acorn Environmental Management Group, added: “We sought to find a genuine partner who will help us move the business forward and continue its development. I am confident that idverde is the right home for our business to continue its growth journey. I am immensely proud of the business we have developed since it was first established in 1994 and would like to take this opportunity to thank all of the Acorn team for their support and dedication over the years.”
