Twenty years in the landscaping industry

Green-tech is celebrating 20 years in the landscaping industry. Founded by Richard and Rachel Kay in 1994 with a second hand van, £200 and an office in their house, Green-tech has grown today to a £9 million plus turnover business, operating out of massive 30,000 sq. ft. warehousing and office facilities, employing more than 40 staff and selling over 6000 products.
Chairman, Richard Kay told The Landscaper “We are incredibly proud of all that we have achieved over the last 20 years. We’ve had highs and lows but we have a great team behind us and business is booming so we have a lot to be thankful for. We don’t take our market leading position for granted and never rest on our laurels; we’re always looking to improve and grow. We plan to invest heavily in expanding our Green-tree topsoil business in the South for 2015, we’re looking at new markets for John Chambers Wildflower Seed arm and we will continue to develop relationships with Landscape Architects, contractors and designers, so as you can tell we have no plans to slow down at Green-tech any time soon”
“We’ve worked hard over the years to offer a wide range of products, quickly and as promised. We’ve built great relationships in the industry with customers and suppliers alike and this keeps us at the forefront of change. We know what the challenges, needs and expectations of the industry are and I think this has helped us stay ahead of our competitors, that and the fact that are prices are keen and we just do the all the simple things well.”
Green-tech has started celebrations with team social events, a joint open day with Johnsons of Whixley and the publication of a 20 page anniversary supplement that provides an in-depth look at their brands, products and people.
