Leading landscape and forestry supplier, Green-tech has today unveiled its new head office and warehousing facility, located just off the A1 in North Yorkshire between junctions 47 and 48.
To celebrate the Green-tech team released 50 balloons with messages attached. They are hoping to find out how far the balloons travel.
The purpose built premises at Rabbit Hill Park, consulted on by Carter Jonas Planning Consultants, designed by Lawrence Hannah Architects and built by Sutcliffe’s Construction has cost in excess of £3 million to complete.
Green-tech also worked with long-term industry partners Smeedon Foreman, Landscape Architects to create a landscape design that not only complemented the development but achieved the ecological and biodiversity goals that are close to the heart of the business.
Owned by Richard and Rachel Kay, Rabbit Hill Park will house Green-tech’s £10 million business; the HQ office, warehouse and distribution facility. As well as home to Green-tech, Rabbit Hill Park also has a number of offices which have already been let and meeting rooms for local small or start-up businesses to hire.
Richard Kay, Chairman commented:
“Over two years in the planning and we’re in! It’s a great personal achievement for Rachel and I and we’re delighted with the finished result. It’s a big site with a number of buildings but they have been completed sympathetically and fit in well with the local landscape. We’ve had fantastic support along the way from our key suppliers and I’m delighted with the work of Sutcliffe Construction. The new site has been well planned and built and will have a number of facilities and services to support local businesses and people. We have already had to increase our workforce and have further plans to recruit. I am confident that Rabbit Hill Park will support Green-tech’s future growth as well as supporting the local economy.”
Managing Director, Rachel Kay, continues
“I am thrilled with the results. 2015 has been a bumper year for Green-tech and moving our 50 strong team, two dogs and over 6000 product lines into Rabbit Hill Park without missing a beat is the perfect end to an amazing year. Leaving our current premises in Nun Monkton, York after 14 years was bitter sweet but we have ambitious plans to double our turnover to £20 million by 2020 so we really need bigger and better premises and facilities. I’m looking forward to the next chapter in Green-tech’s story.”
