Zest 4 Leisure announces new distribution centre plan

Zest 4 Leisure has a new distribution centre at Saltney, Flintshire, which will allow for the planned future expansion and strategic development of the company.

Zest 4 Leisure, which is part of the P&A Group of timber businesses will be showcasing new products at Glee (Birmingham NEC 11-13 September). Products on display will include a diamond trellis arch, a new pergola seat, al fresco dining sets, planters, grow your own and more.

P&A managing director Steve Morgan said: "I am very proud of what we have been able to achieve and the new purpose designed warehousing and distribution centre is such an exciting opportunity for us as a company.

"It will mean that we can broaden our offering and supply garden centres, e-commerce retailers and major purchasing groups in line with our strategic development plans." 

Zest is planning to set up the new warehousing and distribution site and move in before Christmas to be ready for the 2018 garden leisure season.

Zest has also recently announced its collaboration with Cardiff Metropolitan University in creating the new graduate product development role, to focus on innovation and new product ranges.

Morgan said: "Working alongside Cardiff Metropolitan University, it will enable us to monitor and develop future trends and initiatives and we expect our innovation offering to go from strength to strength and our 2019 products to be even more cutting-edge and on-trend."

GIMA award-winning Zest 4 Leisure is known for the reassuring quality of its timber garden products. Manufactured from pressure treated timber all of Zest’s garden furniture will stand the test of time with a 10-year guarantee against rot. The timber used is certified by the Forest Stewardship Council and has been harvested from responsibly managed forests.
