Denbury Homes secures 3rd place for rapid growth among Suffolk’s Top 50 Fastest Growing Businesses

East Anglian housebuilder has ranked 3rd in Suffolk’s Top 50 Fastest Growing Businesses, marking a triumphant year of accomplishments as Denbury Homes.

The ranking, announced as part of the Suffolk Limited Report 2023 by Grant Thornton and Birketts[GU1]  epitomises the energy and ambition that Denbury Homes has demonstrated since rebranding in early 2022.

Formerly Hopkins & Moore, the housebuilder rebranded last year following the sale of sister company, Hopkins Homes. Despite being a relative newcomer, Denbury Homes has rapidly transformed and secured its position as a standout performer in a competitive market.

Joshua Hopkins, Land Director of Denbury Homes[GU2]  said: “The past year has been an extremely successful one, topped off by being recognised as the third fastest-growing business in Suffolk. It’s an impressive feat, especially against the backdrop of the economic challenges the UK has faced.

“Whilst some of these challenges may be here to stay in the upcoming year, we continue to see high levels of interest and engagement from prospective buyers. Our developments are progressing well, and we’re excited about the positive strides we are making with our future projects. We have a busy year ahead with work starting on several new developments in Suffolk, Essex and Cambridgeshire.”[NP3] [GU4] [NP5] 

Since the beginning of the year, Denbury Homes successfully launched two distinct developments in Suffolk villages: Barleyfields in Debenham and The Hornbeams in Elmsett. The thoughtfully designed homes seamlessly blend with their picturesque surroundings and have garnered significant interest since the recent unveiling of their show homes. Plots in Thurston, Mattishall, Badwell Ash and Laxfield[GU6]  are nearly sold out, reflecting the strong demand for a Denbury Homes home.

The year has also seen Denbury Homes secure a five-star rating from the Homes Builders Federation (HBF), adopt the New Homes Quality Board’s (NHQB) new Code of Practice, and successfully host multiple “Help to Move” events to support buyers amid rising inflation and the cost-of-living crisis. Most recently, the pioneering housebuilder joined HBF’s Deposit Unlock scheme, a support initiative that makes homeownership more accessible for every type of buyer.

Looking forward, Denbury Homes shows no signs of slowing down. With a new project in Clare set to unfold this December and further developments on the horizon in the coming year, the housebuilder is poised to consolidate its standing as a key player in the Suffolk business community. James continued: “As we continue to craft developments with a style, size and housing mix that complements their landscape, addresses local needs and contributes to the towns and villages they become a part of, I’m confident that we will sustain this growth.”

The housebuilder’s success was also reflected in its commendable 43rd place in Suffolk’s Top 100 privately-owned businesses. You can read the full report for 2023 here:
