Freshgrass Holdings and Fane Valley Co-operative Society today confirmed that their 50/50 joint ownership of Drummonds will take effect from 1st February 2022 following clearance of the transaction by the Competition and Consumer Protection Commission in early January.
Liam Woulfe, who will continue to serve as Chairman of Drummonds, commented “The reaction from everyone associated with the business since the joint venture was first announced at the end of November has been extremely positive. This partnership opens up many new opportunities for Drummonds and I am very pleased that all the regulatory and legal processes have been successfully completed and that we can now move forward.”
Trevor Lockhart, CEO, Fane Valley Co-operative Society, remarked “Drummonds is a long established, successful and trusted business and Fane Valley is delighted to have the opportunity to partner in it with Freshgrass Holdings. There is a very compelling strategic rationale for this joint venture and many synergies to be realised for the benefit of farmer suppliers, customers, and employees. We are hugely excited that this work can now get underway”.
Drummonds continues to invest in liquid fertiliser and we have recently completed a large-scale liquid fertiliser plant at our Drogheda branch. This facility will enable Drummonds to provide customised nutrient packages tailored to the specific requirements of your crop.
Drummonds was founded by William Drummond in Stirling, Scotland in 1760.
Originally sellers of a wide range of seeds, including flowers, vegetable and grass seeds, the company also distributed bulbs and nursery stock. Many years later the Drummond family established a similar business in Ireland with two shops in central Dublin and national distribution for all its products. In 1972, Drummonds added an agricultural division to its business based in Clonee, trading in grain, fertiliser, chemicals and agricultural seeds.
The company, over time, increased its branch network, opening grain intake points at Ardee, Drogheda, Kells, Knockbridge, Dromore and Navan. A seed manufacturing facility was developed at Drogheda and a ruminant feed manufacturing mill at Navan. Drummonds has over the years initiated a significant capital investment programme and developed the business across a more complete range of product lines, the animal feeds business has been developed and a chain of farm hardware shops added at our existing branches.
