Lorbex Acqusition, July 2015

Established 30 years ago as a supplier of bonsai trees to garden centres, Lorbex has since developed considerable expertise in house plant care, supplying products including specialist feeds, growing media and accessories.  Lorbex counts the leading garden centre groups amongst its loyal customer base.

Helen Broderick, whose mother, founded Lorbex, said: “The acquisition by Doff means I can fulfil my passion to grow the business whilst continuing to deliver great quality products and service.  We will continue our focus on specialist products for the garden centre market.”

Matt Jones, Doff Portland managing director, said: “With Doff looking after the manufacturing and upstream supply chain, Helen will be able to focus on her aspirations to deliver a wider product range and scale up distribution to specialist retailers. We really look forward to working together as we continue to build the group into a multi-channel home and garden business.”
