The small model scenic manufacturing business is to continue post-2022 under new ownership.
Squires Model & Craft Tools is to purchase model scenic manufacturer, Greenscene. In a joint statement by John Lloyd of Green Scene and Roger Lewis of Squires, the future of Green Scene has been secured post-2022.
After 34 years of owning and running Green Scene, starting the business from scratch and building it to be the respected scenic materials manufacturer and supplier that it is today, John Lloyd is to retire. John is to remain in charge of Green Scene up to the end of Model Rail Scotland in February 2022, when the formal handover will be complete.

John said, “Pat and I have enjoyed developing the unique manufacturing processes employed in Green Scene and thoroughly enjoyed meeting so many customers over the years, many of whom have become friends as well as loyal customers of Green Scene. I am delighted that Roger has purchased Green Scene, who I know will uphold the quality of manufacture and service that has been at the core of Green Scene.”
Roger added, “Having been a previous stockist of Green Scene, we know the quality and popularity of the products produced by the manufacturer. We are truly proud that John has entrusted us with Green Scene and look forward to working with John to ensure continuity and quality is maintained.”
