By joining the Dains Group, our ability to deliver an even broader range of services is enhanced and we look forward to joining the Dains team on this incredibly exciting journey”.

Luke Kingston, Partner at Horizon Capital, said “We are delighted to have supported Richard and Dains on their fifth acquisition and welcome the fantastic team at HSKSG into the Group.
