WoodBlocx sees commercial sales rise

Last year saw WoodBlocX increase its domestic sales while growing its commercial division, supplying its landscaping solution to developments across the UK.

The company, which is based in Scotland, has experienced a 60 per cent rise in sales from commercial projects and sold more than 3,500 of its self-build kits to domestic customers in the past 12 months.

Working with Urban Planters, WoodBlocX provided raised beds to builds including UNITE’s Stratford One apartments and also the roof garden at the Angel Lane site, which features WoodBlocX largest raised bed. In addition, raised beds and a stepped planter have been installed at Westfield London and £6,000 worth of raised beds were donated to North Tyneside General Hospital in autumn.

WoodBlocX managing director Henry Blake said: "We are extremely pleased with how well the business has performed in 2015, our partnership with Urban Planters has been extremely beneficial and we are making plans for 2016 to build on the successes of the past 12 months.

"Our domestic work continues to grow too, we offer our customers a design service to ensure they get exactly what they need for the space they have available, we created 2000 bespoke designs in 2015."

WoodBlocX has also expanded into the wider European market working with a distributor in the Czech Republic, giving those based in the Czech Republic, Austria, and a number of German states access to WoodBlocX.
