Stax to extend Plantworks' stock range

Nationwide wholesaler Stax Trade Centres is for the first time stocking the full retail range of Plantworks' Empathy and rootgrow products.

This means that independent garden centres and gardening retailers will be able to purchase products from Plantworks' full range via Stax Trade Centres, which is to stock more than 20 Empathy bio-fertiliser lines. Until recently only rootgrow, the popular RHS-endorsed mycorrhizal fungi, had been available from Stax.  

Aaron Sanders, Stax Range negotiator, said: "Since listing the rootgrow products in March this year the Stax field sales team and Stax outlets have been impressed with the level of service provided by Plantworks and the popularity of the product. The decision to list the full Empathy range brings us closer to providing the most comprehensive range of garden care products available to garden centres and other retailers."

Simon Taylor, head of sales at Plantworks, said: "As our product lines increase our customers are keen to extend the empathy ranges, the most efficient way to satisfy this demand has been to engage with wholesalers. Stax have proved to be highly efficient with a strong sales force and great reputation in the sector. With UK mainland distribution coverage, Stax is the ideal partner to take our products to a wider market."

The full retail range will go live on Stax ordering system soon with a full page dedicated to the range in the new products catalogue.
