Exciting things are happening at Orange Plant


The 1st June 2016 marked an important date in the future of Orange Plant with the launch of a new business collaboration with Först wood chippers!

Since its launch to the market just 3 years ago, Först has fast become an industry leader in the UK. A staggering number of units are now out there working hard for tree surgeons and contractors across the UK and Europe. The phenomenal success of this machine tells the story for itself, it’s an outstanding product designed and built to do exactly what the tree surgeon and contractor needs. It’s tough, it’s fast and it’s built to stand up to a hard life, with a 3 year warranty as standard (no asterisks after the Först warranty statement) this is a product and back up tailored for you – the demanding arborist.

Why the change?

It’s simple. We want to get better and want to serve our customers better. Orange Plant is the UK’s largest independent wood chipper dealer and hire company with 7 depots across the UK. We’ve teamed up with Först to put outstanding product alongside our outstanding service.

Why Först?

There has got to be something to be said for a brand which in just 3 years has over 1000 units out there working in the field. The machines are robust, fast and give a no quibble 3 year warranty. The backup is second to none and the Redwood culture and team is outstanding. We as Orange Plant want to part of that.

The collaboration also works for Redwood / Först themselves. As a company based in Hampshire Redwood were actively looking for ways to enhance their penetration and service in the North to make the outstanding product more available to the entire UK. What better way to do it than with Orange Plant?

New to Först? Don’t know much about it?

Först is a brand owned by Redwood Global. One of the longest established suppliers to the market and a team with exceptional knowledge and experience in the business of selling chippers. Först was launched to market in 2013 from a passion and dedication from Redwood to build the best chipper on the market with the best customer service. That’s what has been done!
