Tony formed GreenMech Ltd in 1993 to design, manufacture and market a British range of wood chippers and shredders to professional arborists, landscapers, contractors and local authorities across the world. Over the last two decades, GreenMech has successfully developed a unique and innovative range of professional machines which are now exported to over 30 countries. Among many significant achievements are a prestigious Queen’s Award for International Trade in 2005 and a second for Innovation in 2009.

Very much a family-run enterprise, in 2002, GreenMech was joined by Tony’s son Jonathan in the role of Managing Director. Following that, Jonathan’s cousin David Turner became Operations Director and now Tony’s grandchildren, Guilhem and Emma Pages-Turner head up the French side of the company. These two represent the third generation of the Turner family to become involved in this award-winning business.

We now employ over 120 people. Export sales have doubled and, in tandem with that rise, our worldwide sales and support service, through appointed dealerships across four continents, continues to flourish.

We are passionate supporters of British manufacturing and work proactively with our regional Chamber of Trade & Commerce to lobby the UK government on its behalf. Since 2006 GreenMech have partnered with the UK Health & Safety Executive in their ‘Buy Quiet’ campaign to reduce workplace noise emissions.
