New products are the lifeblood of many industries and it’s no different in the gardening sector and most of us above a certain age will know the Rubbermaid brand well, particularly if you have ever been in the cleaning industry.
Zest 4 Leisure manufactures a large variety of timber garden furniture, fencing and leisure products, David Coton visited their brand new nine acre site near Chester last week to find out more about current development and future plans.
There's no doubt that the new Zest 4 Leisure Direct warehouse and distribution centre is very imposing. Now fully up and running, it will allow the company to expand, enabling the company to increase both their product range and workforce.
After arriving in Saltney, which is situated on the River Dee, ten miles away from their head office, David met up with Simon Davison who is Head of Zest 4 Leisure Direct.
He was immediately impressed by the sheer size of the new facility.
“You really have to be there to appreciate the huge scale of this new development. It's the size of several football pitches and will undoubtedly aid Zest's expansion plans.
Zest have certainly invested a lot of time and money into a really modern site, and I'm sure it will pay dividends in terms of efficiency and customer service”
Simon added that “The new centre will enable the company to create new jobs which in turn will help us meet increased customer demand for our products.
This is in line with the strategic development of a family owned firm which has grown steadily since its inception only thirteen years ago”.
More will follow in a range that helps everyone make the most of their outside space, so it promises to be an exciting year with the new warehouse signifying an important stage in the company's development.
GardenSite is looking forward to sharing in this bright future and you can see all their products for sale on our Zest 4 Leisure Direct Garden Furniture pages, or alternatively on the official Zest 4 Leisure Direct website.
In these uncertain times it's reassuring to know that Barlow Tyrie have been designing and manufacturing top quality teak furniture for nearly a century, and they have announced several new ranges to coincide with their one hundredth birthday.
Keeping everything we offer on GardenSite fresh with the widest choice is always important, that's why David Coton recently paid a visit to Royalcraft, who offer an impressive selection of high quality outdoor furniture that we will feature next year.
It's autumn and David Coton is getting the garden prepared for the onset of colder weather but, at the same time, the arrival of spring bulbs in the garden centre is a reminder that we should also now be planning ahead for next year.
