Smart Garden Products French team picked up a prestigious award for Supplier of the Year in the Lighting Category, this week, voted for by garden centre buyers in France.

The decision was based on sales potential, product range and innovation, service and availability.

Smart Garden Products picked up the accolade at the Jardin Plus awards, which are organised by French trade magazine, Jardineries. It is the first year this specific award has been included a Lighting category, which the company believes, “underlines both the continued growth of solar lighting and Smart’s market leading position in this sector”.

Smart Garden Products, which has its head office in Oxfordshire and sells throughout the UK and continental Europe, was particularly pleased that its efforts were recognised by numerous garden centre customers in France. The company feels this shows that, despite Brexit, “a British company can hold its own in a challenging environment in France”.

Managing director Jonathan Stobart said of the accolade: “Apart from our fantastic sales team throughout France, headed by Xavier Faure and Celine Branquart, it’s a great testament to our logistics, NPD and administration teams who work so well together across the whole business. We really value and appreciate this recognition and it is very motivating for our whole team”.
