Best trading year in Green-tech’s 23 year history
Leading landscape supplier Green-tech is celebrating a record year since its formation in 1994.
Green-tech completed the year with a turnover of £12.7 million; the highest in Green-tech’s trading history. They had 12 consecutive record breaking months; a first for the company. March was the ultimate high for the company when they achieved a whopping £1.5 million of sales.
Green-tech’s head count has been on a sharp increase over the last four years and they ended their financial year with a record high 77 employees, 31 of these form the sales team; their largest team yet, with yet more plans for further growth scheduled. They successfully took on a number of Apprentices earlier this year and are hoping to take on more apprentices to provide the skilled workers that they believe will be the future of Green-tech.
Green-tech will be celebrating its two year anniversary in November at purpose-built premises, Rabbit Hill Park, just of the A1 in North Yorkshire. The new premises, which cost in excess of £3 million to build are home to Green-tech’s head office, warehouse and distribution facility and customer collection store. Since moving to the Business Park Green-tech has gone from strength to strength and has plans to reach a turnover of £20 million over the next few years.
Green-tech is an avid supporter and regular contributor at industry events and exhibitions and has supported an unprecedented number of 40 this year. They are the headline sponsor of the glittering BALI National Landscape Awards, a sponsor of FutureScape, the APL Awards, the APL UK Worldskills Landscaping competition and Soils in Crisis: Parliamentary reception.
Green-tech has long since been recognised for its excellence and commitment to the industry. They have been announced as a winner in the prestigious BALI National Landscape awards 2017 ‘Affiliate Exceptional Service category.
Earlier this year Green-tech purchased another business, Flexible Lining Products (FLP), the specialist online distributor of Terram, pond and lake liners, erosion control products and porous paving systems. The product range compliments the 6,500 plus product lines Green-tech currently stocks and offers their loyal customer base a broader scope of supplies for their projects.
Commenting on their financial year, Chairman, Richard Kay said:
“It has been a tremendous year for Green-tech, I am delighted that our hard work and commitment to the industry and our clients has paid off and we have increased our turnover by 23% from 2016.
