Lydon has achieved a 22 per cent increase in sales for his area and has been voted the Garland/Worth Gardening ‘Sales Agent of the Year’. He is responsible for sales in Scotland. The award was presented to Joe at the company’s Annual Sales Conference held in the Midlands on 18-19 August. 


Second place was awarded to the Stevensons Agency that covers both southern and Northern Ireland, and third place to last year’s winner Tony Robson who is responsible for sales in the north west of England.


Operations director Tony Dedman said: "At Glee last year we launched over 80 new products, and Joe Lydon and other members of our 12-strong sales agent team have capitalised on the company’s continuing product innovation.  All members of the team, covering the whole of the UK and Ireland, will be supporting our other sales and management staff on our exhibition stand (18H10-K11) at Glee 2016.  We look forward to welcoming existing and potential customers, and presenting over 100 new products that will be on show alongside our other tried and tested garden and hardware items.  There will be completely new product ranges, additions to existing ranges and various in-store promotional material."


The Garland Products Group specialises in the manufacture of plastic injection moulded products for keen and hobby gardeners.  The company opened a new distribution warehouse in February 2015, resulting in an increased capacity of 70 per cent more pallet space.  This has provided greater stock holding and enabled despatch of most orders on the same day of receipt or no later than the next day.
