Gardman warehouse nears completion

The Gardman sales team visited the almost completed 415,000 sq ft National Distribution Centre last week as part of the briefing for Glee and its 2018 growth plans.

The new warehouse, located in Daventry, will reduce road miles by almost 20% says Gardman, and includes solar panels and rain water harvesting to achieve a BREAM ‘Excellent’ rating for environmental construction.

The site will have a customer centre that will showcase products from Gardman Wild Bird Care, lighting, garden décor and core gardening products.

Chief executive Pete Utting said: "2017 has been a very exciting year for Gardman with major
developments now in place. We have upweighted our sales team with not only with quality but also
numbers, we have built this fabulous facility and we are launching 30 new concepts at Glee that,
with our customers’ support, will build on the growth from 2017."
