FORESTRY and landscaping supplier Green-Tech recently held a VIP open day to mark its 25th anniversary.

More than 150 customers and suppliers attended the open day at Green-Tech’s business park in North Yorkshire, where they were invited on a tour of the company’s operation. A number of seminars covering distribution, soils, wildflowers and urban tree planting also took place hourly.

Work on phase two of the business park, which includes additional warehousing, was temporarily halted and guests could look around and get a feel for the scale of the Green-tech operation.

80 people joined the Green-tech team for dinner at the Cedar Court Hotel in Harrogate, where they raised over £340 for York Teaching Hospital Charity, which cares for local hospitals from York to the Yorkshire coast.

 Chairman Richard Kay said: “25 years in business is a big achievement and Rachel and I were delighted that so many people were able to join us at our celebratory open day. It was a great opportunity to bring our customers and suppliers together and for them to meet the team behind the Green-tech machine.

“Guests got to see where it all happens and were amazed at the scale of our site and warehousing operation. Many of our suppliers and customers have been trading with us for a long time and I appreciated the opportunity to thank them for their loyalty, commitment and support.”
