For over 17 years Green-tech has supplied landscape, grounds maintenance, forestry and agriculture markets with innovative products that protect, enhance and improve plants and their environment.
Formed in 1994 by the current owners Richard and Rachel Kay, Green-tech started life supplying the Yorkshire golf course market with essential maintenance products. The business quickly developed with demand increasing for a broader product range and expansion into other related markets such as forestry, landscape and amenity. At this point Richard and Rachel employed 5 people and operated out of a small garage, a far cry from the 40 -strong team and the 30,000 sqft warehousing space that can be seen in Nun Monkton, York today.
Green-tech’s success can be credited to its ability to move with the times compounded with its experience of the industry. Last year Green-tech moved into two new markets, supplying products to both the Horticulture (Professional Growers) and Garden Centre retail markets. Both markets are proving to be an astute move for the company. To support the new business venture Green-tech has employed 5 new people from the local area.
Operating within the landscaping industry, Green-tech is aware of the importance of the impact of business on the environment. Green-tech’s own-brand Green Tree Topsoil is manufactured using organic compost and overburdened sand from quarries, all products which would otherwise hit landfill. The product is of such a high quality and promotes sustainability that it is a renowned Green Apple award winner. Green Tree Topsoil has been used on many high-profile construction sites across the UK and is currently in great-demand, this is resulting in the creation of 2 new soil production sites in Scotland and Kent within the first quarter of 2011.
A recent customer survey commissioned by Green-tech, highlighted the company’s commitment to its customer base. 95% of customers surveyed thought that overall Green-tech offered an excellent or good service level. 82% of respondents said that Green-tech was their first choice of supplier when purchasing landscaping products. Plus 95% of respondents rated the Green-tech team as excellent or good in the survey.
Rachel Kay Managing Director of Green-tech comments:
‘Green-tech is growing from strength to strength, we have a great team in place and excellent, long-standing relationships with our customers. Our first million pound month in 2010 was a milestone for the business and personally I believe we can attribute our main successes down to our flexibility and the ability to rise to the challenge. The recent survey results highlight Green-tech’s strengths- excellent customer service and a team in place that can deliver on time, every time. 2013 is going to be an exciting year for Green-tech, our developments in the Horticulture and Garden Centre markets are already seeing great returns. As a team we have managed to replicate what we have learned over the past 18 years, apply it to our new customer base and so far it seems to be working! ’
