Our History

2011

We decided to make our sole focus the removal of Japanese knotweed, creating a team of national regional managers to assist property professionals and owners of commercial and residential land. To reflect this we changed the company name from Environet Consulting Ltd to Environet UK Ltd.

2014

The business moved to its new Head Office near Woking, a 5,000 sq ft warehouse building to accommodate all head office staff, equipment and our R&D activities.

2016

We bought a parcel of land in Sussex infested with Japanese knotweed to use for our R&D field trials.

2020

On 31st July 2020 ownership of the business was transferred into an Employee Owned Trust, all staff being beneficiaries of the Trust. We also expanded our business into dealing with bamboo, and other invasive plants.

2022

We reformed our leadership and operating structure, giving significantly more responsibility to our team and supporting them as they flourish in their new roles.

2008

Environet designed and developed the Xtract™ machine enabling us to remove Japanese knotweed rhizome from infested soil both effectively and economically.

2013

Environet obtained the backing of an “A-Rated” insurer to underwrite our insurance backed guarantees when removing Japanese knotweed.

2015

MK3 of our patented Xtract™ machine was launched, with enhancements to improve the process rate and manoeuverability with addition of caterpillar tracks.

2017

Our 21st birthday – incorporated in 1996, nearly up to project number 10,000 and counting.

2021

Our R&D team have worked hard to develop an environmentally friendly way of dealing with Japanese knotweed waste, and we’re proud to announce that our method of converting excavated knotweed into biochar was granted a patent in October 2021.

2023

We launched JustCheck™, designed to support people buying and selling property to correctly answer the Law Society’s TA6 form – with the added benefit of a 5-year warranty.
