Meanwhile Smart Garden Products will open its new hub, the Eureka Building, in Peterborough in October providing a 300% increase in pallet storage.
The £18.5m investment will service a planned £100million worth of annual sales, helping the Smart team increase its year-on-year growth, which has exceeded 85% in the last 18 months.
Chairman Paris Natar said: "Standing still isn’t an option for us. Consumers continue to demand more and we want to provide our stockists with the products, tools and services to meet these growing needs."
Natar’s property company, PA Properties, is behind the new site.
Smart has taken much of the business left behind when Solus went into administration in 2014. In 2016 it moved into birdcare from its core lighting ranges by buying the former Solus brand Chapelwood from Scotts.
The project is being managed by Natar’s daughter Sara, a commercial property investment specialist.
