Ebert and Sankey link to supply European garden centres

Fiskars has launched a new brand after combining Sankey with its German sister company Ebert to form international label Ebert Sankey, which will sell container gardening products for indoor and outdoor use.

The 1,000-product range is being marketed to independent garden centres, B&Q and Homebase. The range is designed to sell alongside giftware such as orchid pots and also includes balcony, patio and self-water pots.

New MD John Grayson said this year's rain hit water butt and cutting tool sales and that a new SAP replenishment programme in the last year had caused a "blip" and "let one or two customers down" but the company was now on track to deliver top customer service.
