STAX STEPS UP GARDEN OFFERING FOR 2017

Leading non-food wholesaler, Stax Trade Centres, has just launched their eagerly anticipated 2017 Garden Catalogue ahead of the new season, allowing garden sector retailers to plan their new ranges well ahead of the peak Spring-Summer season.


Set out in the usual, user-friendly format with comprehensive product information the 264 page full colour 2017 garden catalogue has been specifically designed for ease of use by garden centre retailers.


Stax offer a garden range in excess of 3,000 lines from over 70 market leading brands including Scotts, Bayer, Doff, Fiskars and Ronseal to name just a few, as well as a comprehensive choice of own brand products.


The full range of gardening products are available nationally not only on a delivered basis but also cash and carry from each of the six Stax branches with a reduced range available from the Edinburgh depot.


Stax Purchasing Director, Simon Wright comments,

"During 2016 we have consolidated our garden centre business, continued our investment and seen significant growth - both in terms of new customers and increased business from existing customers.  We have focused on service, excellent stock availability and a first class delivery service to allow our customers to buy from us with confidence."


The national sales team of 15 dedicated gardening sales representatives ensures customers benefit from excellent knowledge and customer service. The team has recently been strengthened with the appointment of Terry Murphy as Key Accounts Manager.  Terry brings with him a wealth of experience and has been tasked with looking after and developing the Stax business with garden centre groups.


Wright continues,
"Our commitment to providing the best products and service for our retailers remains at the centre of our business. We have acted on feedback from our growing team of experienced reps, who visit garden centres on a daily basis, and have worked hard to source the best selling products at the right price, enabling our customers to pass on great value."


Stax remain committed to developing their market share in the garden sector business and are confident that recent growth will continue throughout 2017.


Joint Managing Director David Hibbert commented,

"We are totally focused on supporting UK Garden Centres, and have backed up our words by investing in a larger delivery fleet - now with 15 vehicles, new products and also our sales team, most recently with Terry Murphy joining Stax as Nationwide Key Accounts Manager.


We will once again be an official distributor of Pagoda Garden Furniture products in 2017 so believe that although there may be challenges ahead, we are in a particularly strong position to help our garden centre customers capitalise on growth opportunities."
