GL events UK has officially announced its acquisition of fellow events infrastructure provider, Field and Lawn. The move sees GL events UK assume 100 per cent ownership of Field and Lawn, which has operations in Broxburn near Edinburgh, Bristol, and Runcorn.
Founded in 1986, Field and Lawn now operates across four divisions: event marquees, temporary industrial buildings, placemaking, and festive lighting. Field and Lawn is currently involved in the provision of placemaking ahead of next month’s Platinum Jubilee celebrations. Its festive lighting division caters for some of the UK’s biggest Christmas Light collections, including the West End of London, and Edinburgh.
Nick Radcliffe, managing director of Field and Lawn, said: “Joining the GL events Group is a hugely positive step for Field and Lawn. We are enthusiastically embracing the opportunity to develop the business with the support and experience of the GL events team. The strength and stability of the GL events group globally, and the security that this backing affords, is a very positive thing for our current client base and our team and we can’t wait to get started.”
Scott Jameson, CEO for GL events UK, commented: “We are excited to welcome Field and Lawn into the GL events Group and look forward to working with Nick and his team to take the business from strength to strength. While temporary structures, both for events and the industrial market, are very familiar territory for GL events, we are pleased to further diversify and grow our UK offering through placemaking and festive lighting divisions, building on what is already an extremely solid business.”
The acquisition will see Field and Lawn continue to operate as a separate business and brand supported by GL events’ senior management team.
