Smart Garden Products has announced further investment in its new product development and supply chain  teams, with the appointment of Michelle Lee as category management co-ordinator and Darren Bailey as supply analyst & planner.

The new recruits will provide much-needed support, as the company ramps up its programme of range and category extensions.

Smart managing director Jonathan Stobart said: “Bringing Michelle and Darren into the team will help us to accelerate development of new items, build on the strong relationships which we have with our suppliers and maximize stock availability.  We are predicting strong growth in 2019 so we need to expand our head office team to ensure we can maintain high levels of service and fully satisfy customer demand.”
