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.
There's no doubt that television provides gardeners with inspiration, sound advice and good ideas, that's why we're all looking forward to new programmes and the return of old favourites during 2020.
Sustainability and a growing awareness of wildlife are two of the key gardening trends identified by the Royal Horticultural Society for 2020, with gardeners in a position where they can make a substantial impact regarding environmental issues.
Gardening is such a popular activity with interest only increasing over recent years that the magazine rack in your local newsagent or supermarket is packed with publications offering inspiration and practical advice.
Although the days are short and the view from our Garden Centre is dull and overcast, David Coton suggests various jobs that can be done in the garden during the month of January.
