John Lewis Partnership acquires home improvement business Opun
The John Lewis Partnership has acquired home improvement project management firm Opun with a view to strengthening its position in the home services market and complementing its home product range.
Opun was established three years ago with the aim of removing the difficulties associated with home improvement projects.
Founders Rod Brown and John Cushing said: “We founded Opun with a view to revolutionising the home improvement experience, putting customer values first and delivering a world class service using technology as our backbone.”
The firm will operate as a wholly-owned subsidiary of JLP and the Opun brand will be retained.
Sean Allam, director of commercial operations at John Lewis, said: “Opun’s commitment to end-to-end customer service chimes with our values, and we think it’s a great fit for John Lewis customers.
“This acquisition will improve our capability in the home services market, built through our own trials with John Lewis Home Solutions.”
