Alex Reihl, director of G Plants, said: ?The last 12 months has been a period of significant growth for our business, however this is only the start of our long-term vision for G Plants.

?Our new office facility is reflective of our development goals in that we are able to immediately increase capacity and offer improved customer service levels, whilst also providing us with the room to grow even further as we carry out the next steps in our plans.

?It is incredibly exciting to be stood on the precipice of our next chapter, and hope that our customers ? both new and old ? are ready to join us on this exciting journey.?

In addition to the new office facility, which will see production levels peak at 50,000 kilos of grass seed per day, and deliveries expand to 10 trailers per day thanks to the five new loading bays, G Plants has also confirmed it has also benefitted from a UKTI grant, which will enable the company to create 10 new jobs.

Reihl continued: ?Growing our team is a key priority at present. We are currently looking to recruit sales personnel to help increase our coverage across the UK, with a particular focus on the south-west, the Midlands, the north and Scotland.

?We are interested in hearing from anyone who wants to join our team, and to help us develop our offering further in 2015 and beyond.?
Finally, Reihl confirmed some exciting plans for G Plants? flower, vegetable and grass seeds.

Following a successful year of trials at Myerscough College ? a specialist agricultural college based in Lancashire – G Plants has launched several new varieties for the 2015 season.

A special tasting day will shortly be held to help retailers appreciate the stunning flavours that G Plants offers.

Additionally the Myerscough trials will continue into 2016, meaning the company will be best placed to deliver the best possible seeds for the 2016/2017 season.
