Village Vets was founded in 1980 and has c. 260 employees in 19 sites, predominantly in the Greater Dublin Area. The company is regarded as a premium operator with best-in-class facilities and general veterinary services for small animals, and also operates Ireland’s largest pet crematorium. The business has grown substantially in recent years, opening seven new sites through acquisition and six through greenfield expansion.
The Inflexion difference
Inflexion has recent experience in scaling pet care businesses through its investment in veterinary pet-care business Medivet, when it doubled both sites and headcount during the five year partnership. Funding from Inflexion will allow Village Vets to expand existing sites and open in new locations, allowing the business to provide an enhanced offering to pets and owners.
Village Vets is committed to delivering the highest quality of veterinary services in Ireland and Inflexion’s investment is an important milestone for us. I am excited that with additional funding in place, from a partner with experience in our sector and who shares our vision, we will be able to achieve our growth plans. This investment will help us expand our locations, bring opportunities to our teams, and most importantly, bring our renowned pet-care and expertise to more customers and their pets.
