Origin Enterprises PLC acquires Green-tech

Origin Enterprises acquisition

Green-tech, the UK’s leading manufacturer and distributor of landscaping, forestry and grounds maintenance equipment has been acquired by Origin Enterprises. Origin Enterprises is a focused Agri-services group providing specialist on-farm agronomy services, digital agricultural services, the supply of crop technologies and amenity inputs. Origin Enterprises’ vision is to be the leading and trusted partner of choice to Farmers, Growers and Amenity Professionals. Green-tech is expected to enhance the offering of Origin’s amenity businesses and offers potential in the areas of Environmental Land Management for their Agri focussed businesses.

Commenting on the deal, Green-tech owners Richard and Rachel Kay said: ‘When we started Green-tech we had great ambitions to be the ultimate one-stop-shop to the UK landscape trade. We have learnt and grown personally and professionally throughout this time. The Green-tech success story is beyond our wildest dreams and we are incredibly proud and grateful for what has been achieved. Throughout this journey we have made some lifelong friends, but none of it would have been possible without the dedicated team at Green-tech who are the backbone of the business. This deal reflects the ambition of Green-tech, very much onwards and upwards and definitely business as usual.’

Chris Clark, Managing Director of Origin’s Amenity business added: ‘We are delighted to announce the acquisition of Green-tech. Origin Enterprises’ long-term strategy is to further enhance Origin’s amenity brands and the Green-tech acquisition is an ideal fit. Green-tech has a very experienced team, an extensive sector-focused product range, operates in complementary markets and brings a level of diversification. The Origin investment in Green-tech will allow us to better serve our customers whilst driving product development and accelerating growth.’
