In July 2019 Vanderbilt Homes acquired Southampton-based Crayfern Homes, award-winning developer of high-quality houses and apartments in Dorset, Hampshire and West Sussex.
Founded in 1992, Crayfern has become one of the South’s leading developers and, as testament to its build quality, has retained its A1 NHBC rating for many years.
“We are delighted to welcome Crayfern Homes into the Vanderbilt Homes Group,” comments Chris Chiles, Vanderbilt Homes’ Group MD. “Our vision is to generate sustainable growth through market leading operations and premium quality homes and to that end Crayfern Homes represents an excellent fit. Crayfern Homes is a robust business which has demonstrated impressive long-term performance. We look forward to harnessing our group expertise to further enhance our product, service and performance across a broader geography.”
“At Crayfern we have refined our business over nearly 30 years, establishing a strong reputation in the industry for our professionalism, reliability and specification, building some of the best homes in the South,” comments Kevin Wawman, Crayfern Homes MD. “Our acquisition by Vanderbilt will allow us to join with another likeminded housebuilder that shares our values and ambition to grow the business still further.”
Both businesses will continue to operate with existing brands, which have strong reputations in local markets.
