Forest Garden has taken on 100 new staff to produce fence panels and garden sheds as a result of 2014’s high winds and gales.  Production levels are reaching four times the norm.

Group chief executive Guy Grainger said: "We’re extremely pleased to be able to report the significant expansion of our team here at Forest. "

"The beginning of 2014 has brought with it some incredibly challenging weather, and as a result we have had to ramp up our production levels to meet demand for product across the board. 

"The introduction of 100 new workers will allows us to continue to meet this demand, whilst also demonstrating our commitment to our business and employment in the local area."
