Agrivert Acquires Chiltern Solar

Oxfordshire based Agrivert has acquired the entire share capital of Buckinghamshire based Chiltern Solar Limited from its founders Steve & Julie Gamston.

Agrivert has specialised in engineering and operating renewable energy assets for almost 30 years.  Since 2010, Agrivert’s primary focus has been on producing biomethane to generate renewable energy through the design, build and operation of anaerobic digestion facilities that treat food waste, agricultural wastes and energy crops.  The acquisition of Chiltern Solar broadens Agrivert’s renewable energy product offering, further enabling it to deliver on its strategy of delivering the best design, installation and operational services for renewable energy to customers.

Phil Earl, Agrivert’s Chief Executive said: “We are delighted to welcome the Chiltern Solar team into the Agrivert family.  Expanding Agrivert’s capabilities into other forms of renewable energy is an important next step for the group as we continue to grow, widening our customer base but also enabling us to bring new solutions to our existing customers and opportunities for our staff.  We have been very impressed with Chiltern Solar’s growth in recent years, their capability and expertise in solar PV and look forward to accelerating that as part of Agrivert.” 

Having built the business from scratch over a decade ago and undertaken well over 1,000 installations in the past five years, consistently getting five-star reviews from customers, Chiltern Solar’s founders decided the time was right for the next phase of growth to be under new ownership and management.

Steve Gamston, one of Chiltern Solar’s Founders said: “ Chiltern Solar are very excited to be joining forces with the Agrivert Group for the next chapter of business growth and expansion. This strategic move opens doors to new resources, expertise, and opportunities, and will enable us to extend our reach and increase our impact in the Solar PV marketplace. Our decision was made with confidence in Agriverts commitment to upholding our values, their proven track record in the renewable energy sector and their vision for continued growth and success. “

There will now be a period of transition as Agrivert integrates Chiltern Solar’s operations team and processes into the wider group and allowing, in time, for Steve & Julie Gamston to retire.
