2 December 2022

Coventry-based Fallons Ground Maintenance Ltd  has been bought by Nurture Landscapes Group in Surrey.

This acquisition places Nurture Landscape Group firmly amongst the fastest-growing businesses in its industry with group revenue set to top close to £130 million this year. With annual sales of £2.6 million, Fallons is focused primarily on providing high-quality services to corporate clients throughout the Midlands region.

Founded in 1976 in the heart of Coventry, Bill Fallon started Fallons Grounds Maintenance originally as an addition to an already successful milk round business.

From the local filling station and a single mower bought locally for £25 per cut, Bill worked tirelessly over the next forty-plus years to build a professional grounds business focusing mainly on the education sector in and around the Midlands. As the business grew, two further generations of the Fallon family joined the team, to support Bill and they continue to work in the business today.

Although the education sector still represents 70 per cent of its client base, new customers have consolidated the reputation and excellent commercial performance of the family-run business. Alongside its core grounds maintenance service, Fallons has extended its offering to include landscaping and winter maintenance, areas in which Nurture Group is successfully building a fully nationwide network of provision, alongside its other services.

Integration of Fallons into Nurture Group will take place over the remainder of 2022 being prior to trading under the Nurture brand from 1 January 2023.

Building upon the relationships Fallons has established over the course of its 46-year history, Bill’s son, and co-founder Lee, along with fellow family members Chris and Kieran, will continue in their respective operational and management roles, working with Nurture’s Midlands head of operations, Chris Notley.

Peter Fane, Nurture’s founder and executive chairman, said: “This is our sixth acquisition of the financial year and an important building block and milestone on our journey to be the most successful and respected green services group in the country.

“I am delighted to welcome Fallons into The Nurture Group. Our two companies share similar values and cultures, and we both believe in providing high quality products and service to customers.

Cultural fit alongside professional excellence are important elements on our path to growth.“In addition to its strong presence in the education sector, Fallons’ capabilities will help to augment our wider portfolio in hospitality, industrial and healthcare facilities alongside clients’ FM professionals and partners.

We are really looking forward to onboard this well-respected organisation and taking them on our venture to extraordinary growth”
