Konstsmide Visit GardenSite

Recently the GardenSite Christmas showsite in Sutton Coldfield, Birmingham, was visited by several very important visitors from Konstsmide lighting, including Jonas Johansson (Director) and Toni Josifovski (Product Manager of Outdoor and Garden Lighting). 

The Konstsmide delegation were on a tight schedule and on their way back to Birmingham International Airport, however they were keen to see their products on display and gather feedback from the UK market. So the UK Konstsmide representative David Smith suggested they call in to meet with the GardenSite Konstsmide buyer Simon Whitehead.

During the visit Jonas Johansson described how 'the packaging that customers encounter in store is something we are very particular about. It needs to be robust, distinctive and uniform, instantly recognisable and giving our products long term protection'.
