Boyes Turner has advised on an acquisition for a leading international agri-services company to complement its amenity business portfolio in the UK.
The corporate transactions team from Reading-based Boyes Turner acted for Origin Enterprises on its acquisition of Greentech.
Origin provides specialist on-farm agronomy services, digital agricultural services and supplies crop technologies and inputs.

Boyes Turner advised Origin on the acquisition, as well as employment law and commercial property issues. The acquisition team was led by Chris Dobson, corporate partner at Boyes Turner. He said: “Boyes Turner is delighted to have advised Origin on this deal, allowing it to enhance its offering to customers across the UK, drive product development and support growth. It is always exciting to help a business expand, especially when the deal offers potential for continued growth.”
Commenting on the acquisition, Origin chief executive officer, Sean Coyle, said: “Green-tech is an excellent strategic fit for Origin and extends our amenity offering in the UK in a segment we expect will grow further in the coming years. We are delighted to welcome the Green-tech team to the Origin Group”.
