County Group snaps up Taylor Francis

GRP-owned Country Group has bought Taylor Francis Ltd, a retail commercial broker with offices in in Newport South Wales, and Aylesbury in Buckinghamshire from which it will continue to trade following the deal. It is County’s fourth acquisition this year.

Tim Taylor, founder and Taylor Francis, said: “In our discussions with Alastair Christopherson (CEO of County Group) he stressed that community roots were a prime driver of value for our business. Our local experience and knowledge were an important factor behind County Group’s interest in us and we fully intend to continue to ‘act local’ under new ownership.”

Christopherson (pictured) added: “A number of vendors have reflected on their position post pandemic and see the advantages in the support and firepower provided by County and GRP.

“We were really impressed with the entrepreneurial spirit in the Taylor Francis team, and the desire to continue to deepen their community footprint in South Wales and Buckinghamshire.”
