Published: 28 August 2020 - Neil Mead

The opening of a new purpose-built warehouse by Garland /Worth Gardening has proved to be timely as the company is experiencing unprecedented growth in sales for its extensive range of garden care products. 

Garland/Worth Gardening’s new warehouse facility increases the company’s storage capacity in the Midlands by 70 per cent

Already this season, the company has achieved an impressive increase in turnover of almost £1 million.  The warehouse, close to the company’s factory in Kingswinford, provides over 4,000 extra pallet spaces and extends Garland’s storage capacity in the Midlands by 70 per cent.

Commenting on the buoyant situation being experienced by the company, sales director Mark Dedman said: “The early completion of our new warehouse facility will enable us to deal speedily and efficiently with the high level of orders experienced so far this season and for the foreseeable future.  We have been amazed at the level of business throughout this season.  A great pre-season has been followed by record sales figures month after month, with both June and July registering increases of over 150 per cent and smashing all previous records.  Despite lockdown, we have remained positive and have been forward thinking by maintaining extensive stock levels in order to meet the demand when stockists re-opened for business.  That demand has been even bigger than we expected but our new warehouse capacity will ensure that we have the necessary stocks to accommodate the busiest of seasons and at the same time provide more space for our own manufactured products.”

The Garland Products Group specialises in the manufacture of plastic injection moulded products and is one of the fastest growing suppliers to the garden industry.  The products available to both keen and hobby gardeners have been designed through the company’s own experience as keen gardeners.
