Elite Greenhouses

Elite Greenhouses Limited is a third generation family business based in Kearsley, near Bolton, Lancashire. Developed from an idea by founder Joseph Simpson, an expert craftsman of commercial greenhouses, and current Managing Director, R.W. Hannant, Elite Greenhouses began trading in 1974. The company was launched on the back of the success found in the commercial greenhouse markets where both founders were key players in the successful growth of Elite's sister company, Unique Dutch Light.

Whatever your budget, Elite Greenhouses has the capacity to cater for all. We can not guarantee the weather, but we can guarantee a great product.


Standard items in an Elite Greenhouse include:

  • Finger Tip sliding door
  • Strong integral gutters giving strength at the eaves
  • 4ft sq roof vents
  • Stainless steel clips
  • Maintenance free, rigid aluminium frames which will not rust, warp or rot
  • Comprehensive instruction manual
  • 10 year guarantee

A wide range of powder coated paint finishes help personalise your choice of Elite greenhouse. Our extensive collection of accessories including shelving, automatic vents and staging together with different options of glass ensuring that not only do you have a unique product to brighten your garden, but one that is built to last, season after season, year upon year.

Each Elite greenhouse is carefully flat packed and comes complete with a comprehensive instruction manual to guide you with its construction. If you experience any problems in its assembly, Elite's in-house technical team are more than happy to assist you with any query you may have.

GBC, as Elite's largest UK outlet, also has a fabulous collection of greenhouse package deals . Combining all the normal benefits of an Elite greenhouse with staging, shelving, toughened glass to safeguard all, and much more, there really is nowhere better to buy an elite greenhouse than from GBC.

GBC and Elite Greenhouses

GBC Group are the biggest supplier of Elite Greenhouses in the UK. GBC are located at some of Britain's most prestigious garden centres from the South Coast to Scotland and display a comprehensive range of Elite Greenhouses.

All branches of the GBC Group display the Elite Craftsman, the Elite High Eave, the Elite Compact, the Elite Streamline, the Elite Belmont and the new Elite GX greenhouses. We also display the Elite Garden Supreme, the Elite Lean-to range and The Elite Dwarf Wall greenhouse at selected locations.

Each year we sell off all our showmodels and replace them with the latest versions of the Elite Greenhouse range with up to date specifications so you can be sure that we are always clean, tidy and up to date. We put our display models up for sale on July 1st each year for installation during the winter so if you want to be considered as a potential customer for one of these please let us know.

GBC have also taken a lead nationally in fitting all of our display Elite Greenhouses with toughened safety glass to ensure our customers' safety. Our displays are easily accessible along level pathways so less able customers are able to view the products without difficulty.

So its easy to come and see Elite Greenhouses at GBC group display centres, but that doesn't explain why we sell so many ! There are several reasons : we always have an eye for price and it would be unusual to find anyone offering a better combination of price, service and display in the UK. Just as important, our staff are fully trained to explain the benefits of each Elite Greenhouse : they know the Elite Greenhouse range inside out and back to front ! Prices can vary from £ 203 to over £ 5000 so it's as well to deal with people who know what they are talking about !

Fantastic displays, knowledgeable friendly staff and open all year round - there's no better place to buy your Elite Greenhouse from than the GBC Group.
