Following the announcement that Countrywide Farmers is exiting the turf and amenity market, the company has transferred its T&A division to an alternative provider.
Advance Grass Solutions will take over management of the T&A division from its base in Reading, Berkshire.
Sam Honeyborne, managing director at AGS, said: “We are excited by the opportunity that this new business presents and confident of a seamless transition from Countrywide, as we continue our growth plan in the UK amenity sector.
“The T&A team has made excellent progress in the past five years and has adapted to suit the evolution of the market, with the increased customer appetite for long term agronomic support.
“I would like to thank Countrywide for the help and guidance through this transition and assure our loyal customers and suppliers of service continuity throughout.”
AGS will provide a UK‑exclusive range of high quality turf maintenance products to include Sustane, Growth Products and Polyon in addition to established brands such as DLF Seeds, Farmura, Aquatrols and Bathgates.
Sam added: “Haulage and delivery has been problematic in recent years in the industry and most of our competitors presently outsource this requirement. Initially we are committed to delivering directly to our customers in the south but are aiming for national coverage by 2020.
