Alltami landscapers Wrights has been taken over in a £2m acquisition by Hultons Landscapes.

Wright Landscapes has a turnover of £2m a year and employs 15 staff across its offices in Alltami and Wrexham. ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​

Wright’s clients include Flintshire County Council and HMP Berwyn the new £212 million prison being built in Wrexham. ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​

The company will continue to operate under its existing Wright Landscapes brand name as part of Hultons Landscapes. ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​

The acquisition will see Hultons, a £7 million turnover business expand its UK presence into North Wales, and follows growth into the West Midlands and South Yorkshire regions earlier this year. ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​

The firm, which was founded in 1968, currently employs 65 people in its office in Lymm and is soon to open an office in the Midlands. ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​

Lee Webster, managing director of Hultons Landscapes, said:

“This has been a landmark year for Hultons and the acquisition is another milestone for us. ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​

“We continue to achieve exceptional sales growth year on year and this has allowed us to secure further investment to strengthen our business. Meanwhile, our work in the sector is also gaining increased recognition and saw us win two awards from the British Association of Landscaping Industries this year. ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​

James Wright, founder and managing director of Wright Landscapes, added:

“We’ve had a number of offers for the business however Hultons Landscapes’ brand, vision and culture make them an ideal fit. ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​

“Our clients will continue to receive the same high standards they have come to expect as both companies integrate over the next 12 months. Coupling Wright’s in-house experience and local supply chain relationships with Hulton’s own expertise will allow the group to further build upon its strong credentials.” ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​
