Green-tech invited its customers and suppliers to help celebrate its 25th anniversary at a VIP open day last week.
More than 150 customers and suppliers attended the open day at Green-tech‘s purpose built business park in North Yorkshire.
Guests were invited on a tour of the Green-tech operation where they could see the UK’s leading landscape supplier in action. A number of seminars that covered distribution, soils, wildflower and urban tree planting took place hourly. Visitors were invited to show off their competitive streak with a laser pigeon shooting competition and enjoy a traditional Yorkshire Hog Roast.
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 sheer scale of the Green-tech operation.
80 people joined the Green-tech team for dinner at the Cedar court Hotel in Harrogate, where the generous revellers raised over £340 for York Teaching Hospital Charity; Green-tech’s chosen charity which cares for local hospitals from York to the Yorkshire Coast. They help by funding the extras to improve the healthcare facilities above and beyond the NHS to make patients feel better.
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.”
The sun was shining and the day was a huge success. Green-tech has received numerous emails of thanks.
