Hartlebury trading estate in Worcester is home to leading UK timber supplier Forest Garden, they manufacture and supply high quality garden buildings, structures and fencing.
Robert Hall and David Coton both partners at gardensite.co.uk were welcomed at the head office by Guy Grainger, CEO at Forest Garden Products and Paul Taylor, National sales Manager for Garden Centres, on the 21st of February, 2013.
They were given access to look around the production facility in full swing and to see the work involved in manufacturing garden sheds and fencing.
Robert Hall (Senior Partner) said:
"I was amazed with the sheer scale of the operations and the stock holding within the site. Everyone works as a team to ensure demand is met and quality is kept to the highest standards. We look forward to another successful year in selling Forest Garden sheds, and the balance of the significant Forest Garden range, both locally and nationally."
Overall the day was a very successful and a great opportunity to see at first hand the way sheds and stores are manufactured and brought to market by the leading garden timber manufacturer.
All Forest Garden products are FSC certified and as a manufacturer Forest Garden are fully committed to using the timber responsibly and in an efficient manor.
