The GGS core product range is manufactured by Suncast in America who have been market leaders for over 25 years. GGS hold an exclusive distribution agreement for the UK. The partners will be running ‘business as usual’ retaining the current UK team and the existing Suncast products. They plan to expand the range and sell the products on a direct dispatch basis nationally via new and existing relationships with national and independent retailers.

Richard Greenhill said: "Having developed long-standing, trusted relationships with retailers across the UK in the homewares sector, the acquisition is an exciting opportunity to replicate this success in the garden and leisure market.

"We’re looking forward to working with the existing team who, from day one, have shared our enthusiasm to drive the business forward. Their extensive experience is invaluable to the business."
