Stax launches garden centre tools range at Glee

Wholesaler Stax Trade Centres will be exhibiting for the first time at Glee this September, launching a range of Ambassador premium garden tools.

Ambassador is aimed at garden centres and includes spades, forks, rakes, hoes, secateurs, loppers, shears, planters and other small garden hand tools with lengthy quality.

Both the digging and hand tools are available in carbon or stainless steel variants with
ergonomically designed handles. The digging tools have either wooden shafts, poly shafts or ash handles.

The hand tools are available with a soft grip or wooden handle.

Purchase director Simon Wright said: "Our aim is to provide retailers with a three-tier choice of digging tools giving them a good, better and best proposition.

"The carbon steel range with a wooden shaft are the entry level tools with the stainless steel range with poly shaft providing the better option and the top of the range being the stainless steel tools with an ash shaft."

Secateurs, pruners, loppers, shears and planters complete the range. All loppers have coated high carbon steel blades.

As part of the launch Stax will be offering extra discounts as well as a range of stock-and-stand
deals.

Customers will be able to place orders both at Glee and Stax’s Big Brands Show later in
September, with stock available for delivery from January.
