Consistent with our strategy to broaden the Origin Group’s current offering alongside our continued commitment to growing our existing businesses to give us a more balanced portfolio, the Amenity Division has grown significantly over recent years.
To meet our future strategic goals, the Amenity and Ecology Divisions are expected to experience strong organic, synergistic, and acquisitive growth over the next five years.
Origin Amenity acquires Groundtrax Systems Ltd, the UK’s number one specialist supplier of ground protection and reinforcement systems.

Simon Adams, Managing Director of Groundtrax comments ‘’I am delighted to be joining Origin Amenity. Having a strategic partner like Origin will allow us to accelerate our growth plans and explore new opportunities.
Origin shares our vision for Groundtrax and the development of sustainable drainage and this was a key driver in our decision to partner with them.
Origin’s core values align with my own, their commitment to the sector and their people is evident. This cemented in my mind that they were the only Company suitable for the Groundtrax business for the future”.
Commenting on the announcement, Origin Amenity Managing Director, Chris Clark, said: “Groundtrax are an excellent fit for Origin to broaden our product range for our existing customers as well as entry into new markets that Groundtrax currently serve.
Groundtrax products as part of Sustainable urban drainage systems (SUDS) are key to mitigating more frequent flooding events linked to climate change.
