An impressive 97 per cent sales increase and the acquiring of several new accounts have resulted in Tony Robson being voted the Garland/Worth Gardening ‘Sales Agent of the Year’. The award was presented to Tony at the company’s Annual Sales Conference held in the Midlands on 20th and 21st of August 2015. Tony Robson is responsible for sales in the north west of England.
Second place was awarded to Joe Lydon who covers Scotland, and third place to Andy Burton who is responsible for the south west of England.
During the conference it was announced that Garland/Worth Gardening’s sales are expected to increase by around 20 per cent for the 2015 financial year and that export sales are on schedule to achieve a 13 per cent growth.
Commenting on the continuing buoyant situation of the company, operations director Tony Dedman said: “Our 16-strong sales agent team that covers the whole of the UK and Ireland has produced sound results again this year. All members of the team will be present on our exhibition stand (18H10-K11) at various times during Glee 2015, where they will be helping to launch over 80 new products to the garden and hardware trade. In addition to new products, we will be adding several new promotional and purchasing aids in order to support our many customers. There will be nineteen new promotion bins, two pallet deals and one new display stand.”
The Garland Products Group specialises in the manufacture of plastic injection moulded products, and supplies a wide range of products for keen and hobby gardeners. The company opened a new distribution warehouse in February 2015, and the resulting increased capacity of over 70 per cent more pallet space has meant greater stock holding and despatch of most orders on the same day of receipt or no later than the next day.
