Green-tech hails "storming month" for sales in November

Green-tech is celebrating its most successful month of sales in its 22-year trading history.

This comes as the company also celebrates its one year anniversary in their new purpose-built business park which has enabled them to increase their sales and administration support plus warehousing and distribution facilities.

Earlier this year Green-tech predicted this tree planting season would be their busiest yet, but said November’s sales figures had "far exceeded their expectations".

Head of sales Richard Gill, BALI NE and Yorkshire chairman, said: "November was a storming month and the good news is that it looks set to continue. We hold the largest stocks of tree shelters and stakes in the UK; our current stockholding is two million tree shelters. We can generally offer next day delivery and this coupled with our competitive pricing and sales expertise is a winner with our customers."

Earlier this year the company restructured its sales team and promoted internally. Headcount now exceeds 60 employees but this is set to rise during 2017 as Green-tech continues in its drive to double its turnover by 2020.

Chairman Richard Kay said: "I am thrilled at our present position. Trading conditions and the market continue to be tough but overall it has been a great year for Green-tech.  A record month is always something to celebrate. I am delighted that our hard work has paid off.  We are already looking forward to smashing this month’s figure so watch this space."

Kay has been invited to join the main BALI board where he has taken up the position of director responsible for affiliates.  For a second year Green-tech was the headline sponsor for the BALI National Landscape Awards which took place last week.  The company was also a finalist in two award categories – Employer of Year and Affiliate Exceptional Service.
