A presentation that followed explained the working partnership between Green-tech and Tubex, a brand of Berry Global, and how the Aberdare site is at the forefront of full circularity in tree shelter manufacture. They support this with their Collection and Recycling Scheme, which ensures responsible disposal of tree shelters, and closes the loop to increase the usage of recycled materials. Green-tech is an official Tubex partner and the largest distributer of their products. Green-tech’s premises in North Yorkshire has recently been announced as an Official Tubex Collection & Recycling Programme Drop-off Hub.

The Green-tech delegates were given a detailed overview of the new Tubex Nature™ Tree Shelter and the recent upgrades were explained.

Green-tech’s Sales Director Richard Gill comments, “The day was a huge success. 21 of our customers joined us for an informative and interesting day at the Tubex manufacturing site. It was fascinating to see the scale of the operation and the process of recycling shelters and production of new tubes. It provided a great opportunity to bring all parties today – the manufacturer, us as the intermediary and the end user. We rounded off the day with a private dining experience which was enjoyed by all.”

Pete Stevens at Tubex, “It was great to host Green-tech and some of their customers.  We have a close working relationship with Green-tech, so we enjoyed showing them our facilities and explaining our planned developments. Its always nice for us to actually meet the end user and I was proud to see how impressed they were and to have the opportunity to answer their questions regarding our planned R&D and to take away their feedback which was incredibly useful.”.

Green-tech is the largest supplier of tree planting protection materials in the UK. They offer traditional shelters and a choice of biodegradable and environmentally friendly alternatives including the Tubex Nature™ Tree, Rainbow Terra shelters and the NexGen range.
