0 Old Scottish rivals do business

Stewartsturf Limited has recently announced the sale of its Sports and Amenity Business, Stewart and Company Seedsmen Ltd to Richard Aitken Seedsmen Ltd.

These two old rivals formed in 1894 and 1964 respectively, have been the mainstays of the industry in Scotland for generations. Richard Aitken said he was delighted to have purchased Stewarts with all the connections, history and relationships involved. "We can now move forward expanding the quality of service that we offer to our customers in Scotland and England," he commented.

For his part, Graeme Forbes of Stewartsturf said "following our decision to concentrate on our turf growing business we enjoyed the successful management buyout of our contracting business to Sportsmasters UK Ltd in July. For our Sports and Amenity Business we could not have found a more appropriate buyer than Aitkens whom we have always held in great respect, both as a business and a family."
