The NFU and Acorus Rural Property Services have struck a deal to bring the company under the NFU umbrella, joining NFU Energy and CT Planning in a growing portfolio of professional commercial services available to NFU members.
The NFU Commercial & Investment Director Ken Sutherland said: “We’re really pleased to announce this partnership with Acorus. They are leaders in agriculture and architectural design and their expertise will be a real benefit to many NFU members across the country.
Acorus Managing Director James Whilding said: “Joining the NFU group of companies provides considerable opportunity to increase market presence within the property sector and capitalise on the wealth of knowledge within the NFU.
“At the NFU, we are always looking to grow our range of professional services and this acquisition will add further value for our members.”
Acorus is a well-established firm of surveyors, planning consultants and architects which provides advice and support to farmers, landowners and other rural businesses from its offices in Exeter and Bury St Edmunds. The day to day running of the business will remain largely unchanged, this collaboration is a perfect fit and one which offers a very exciting future for both businesses.
