'We are pleased to announce that Alpine Nurseries and the Green family have today agreed terms for the sale of the Alpine business. The sale is expected to be completed before Christmas.
The sale will result in Peter and Kay Knox leaving the business after 16 very successful years. Apart from this change it will be business as usual for Alpine - all current arrangements, employees, quotes, orders, bank accounts etc. remain unchanged.
Peter Knox - Managing Director of Alpine Nurseries said that "When Kay and I decided to sell Alpine, one of our main objectives was to ensure that the key values and culture of Alpine continued. This is particularly evident in the Alpine team and the quality and teamwork that is embedded in our people, the quality stock and our processes. We are very proud of the legacy we are leaving and have thoroughly enjoyed our time in this wonderful industry. Despite other offers I chose the Green family because of the shared visions we have for the industry and because with their nearly 40 years as a family nursery business they understand how and why we do things. We wish them every success".
Tony Green said "The Green family want to assure all Alpine stakeholders that it will be business as usual at Alpine. Peter Knox has built up a great team at Alpine and Ken Bevan (General Manager of Alpine Nurseries) will continue to lead the Alpine team forward. The Green family wish Peter & Kay all the best for their future”.'
