Trimetals metal storage solutions continue to be popular best sellers on GardenSite and the company has now been officially recognised as one of Britain's 'brightest businesses'. Robert Hall learnt of this latest achievement on the Queen's birthday.
Well known for its metal sheds and storage units, Trimetals yesterday received the prestigious Queen’s Award for International Trade for their tremendous results in exporting products overseas.
Based in Dorset, the company are already market leaders in Europe and this award reflects their success in developing worldwide sales with foreign trade increasing significantly over the last few years.
Managing Director Garry Smith says that he is 'incredibly proud of the honour', and uses a gardening metaphor to describe 'vigorous new growth and blossoming results'.
Their metal storage solutions and sheds are currently the only ones recognised by the Royal Horticultural Society, they are ideal for many different gardening and domestic items that need to be protected both from the weather and theft.
Lawnmowers, gardening tools, equipment, and outdoor furniture can all be safely stored in a safe, dry environment and their highly successful range also includes top selling bicycle and motorcycle stores.
With security and longevity in mind the stores and sheds are made from PVC coated heavy gauge steel that has a 25 year guarantee against corrosion. Fire resistant and with tough integral bases, contents are protected by sturdy locks and locking bars.
This design is a police preferred specification and we sell Trimetals' products both to individuals and various organisations such as sports clubs and schools who need to secure expensive property outdoors.
Although the days are short and the view from our Garden Centre is frosty and overcast, Andy Taylor suggests various jobs that can be done in the garden during the month of January.
Showcasing young musical talent, this year's Winter Concert at Arthur Terry School was an outstanding success and took place against the stunning backdrop of a Christmas Tree donated by GardenSite.
It was quite an honour for GardenSite to be asked to supply the Christmas Tree to Birmingham New Street Station this year, and to celebrate we're offering a Champagne High Tea to the winners of a seasonal selfie competition.
With Storm Caroline reeking havoc many people are likely to be contacting their insurance companies at some time regarding damage caused to sheds, greenhouses, fences and other garden property. Robert Hall explains how GardenSite.co.uk can help with an independent insurance quote and claim.
