Brackley, Northamptonshire (31 October, 2022) – Neighbourly® UK, one of Britain’s largest home services organisations, announced today its acquisition of Greensleeves®, a professional lawn care company headquartered in Huddersfield, West Yorkshire, with 108 locations across the UK. Neighbourly UK welcomes its sixth brand into its group with this acquisition. Additionally, this acquisition takes Neighborly’s global home services brands to more than 30 across 18 service verticals.
Upon the acquisition news, Neighbourly Managing Director Philip Carr commented, “Greensleeves is a brand that Neighbourly has admired for several years. Their dedication to customer service and excellence complements our other brands in the UK. Being one of the UK’s most long established lawn treatment businesses is a fantastic accolade. We are excited to build on these strong foundations and welcome an additional 108 locations to Neighbourly UK and the wider Neighborly global family.”
David Truby joined Greensleeves in 2004, becoming its Managing Director and owner in 2008. Mr Truby commented, “It’s an exciting day for Greensleeves and all of our franchise owners. I have been proud to be part of the journey that has grown our locations from 2 to 108. But it is now time for Greensleeves and Neighbourly to write the Company’s next exciting chapters collaboratively and benefit from all of the support and tools Neighbourly offers. Neighbourly was founded on the principle of entrepreneurship and customer service, just like Greensleeves. Neighbourly’s depth of experience in the home services industry and background of growing and supporting brands highlights that this is the right next step in our evolution.”
David and his team will continue in their roles, operating the business and supporting the network of franchise locations across the UK.
