History

Riccardo Castiglioni, Founder & Managing Director, George Georgiou, Finance Director and Iain Pentney, General Manager spearheaded the operation from the nursery in Waltham Abbey.

Over the past 27 years the company has achieved steady and controlled organic growth to a level where it now commands in excess of 7 acres of prime agricultural land and dedicated despatch facilities to service the nursery, garden centre, architectural, design and landscaping sectors.

From humble beginnings and with careful guidance the Company can now boast a headcount of 25 experienced and passionate personnel who over the years have facilitated in excess of ¬£70m of domestic sales; over and above this there is also a dedicated team, in London, who oversee all the arrangements relating to the ‘direct shipment’ and ‘fly-buy’ offerings.

Comment from Riccardo:

“At ClassifloraZelari, we have a simple philosophy: we continually target and ultimately source quality stock from reliable, enthusiastic and established partners. Our years of experience have helped us refine this highly successful approach, creating a powerful and comprehensive range of acclimatised stock available in differing quantities 12 months of the year.”
