Enterprising nursery supplies ambitious airport project
Johnsons of Whixley has supplied a range of trees, plants and grasses as part of the construction of a new £15m link road at Manchester Airport.
The products were supplied to the new Enterprise Way at Airport City North throughout the month of November, in partnership with landscapers Blue Wigwam.
The range supplied includes large single and multi-stem trees, ground cover flowering plants and low maintenance grasses.
The construction of the new link road, which is a part of Airport City North at Manchester Airport, marks a major milestone that will help underpin future development, including the creation of offices, advanced manufacturing units and new hotel beds, creating a total of 11,400 new jobs.
Enterprise Way will connect new development plots to the rest of the landmark site and the wider transport network.
Johnsons of Whixley senior amenity sales manager, Tony Coles, said: “The development at Airport City North is truly exciting, and it’s been a privilege to provide products to Enterprise Way section of the wider project.
“Working with our partners at Blue Wigwam, we have delivered to an exacting specification and deadline.”
Blue Wigwam director, Richard Hughes, said: “I have worked with Johnsons for the last 17 years, and in the last year they have given me support and a quality of service and product that I can’t get from other tree nurseries.
“I believe that my loyalties lie with Johnsons of Whixley, and for a good reason – they look after me and my company.”
Johnsons of Whixley is one of the largest commercial nursery businesses in Europe, and a trusted supplier of plants and trees to the amenity sector in the UK.
