LifestyleGarden® invests in new showroom & distribution centre to facilitate UK growth
Having enjoyed a phenomenal start to 2019, which saw sales targets smashed, unprecedented demand from retailers for additional stock due to much higher than expected sales, and all future ordered stock already pre-sold before arrival, LifestyleGarden® is celebrating further growth with the opening of its new showroom and distribution centre.
Located in the heart of Essex, the new LifestyleGarden® showroom offers 14,000 sq ft of outdoor furniture perfection. Previously the home to LifestyleGarden®’s head office and distribution centre, the newly design showroom features two floors of product, enabling the company to showcase its entire portfolio under one roof.
Initiatives such as the Ocean Recovery Project are helping to raise awareness and encourage UK consumers to take responsibility for local ocean clean-up operations.
But what happens to the ocean plastic that is recovered? In the case of the DuraOcean chair from LifestyleGarden®, it becomes a beautiful piece of outdoor furniture – the first of its kind in the UK. A representative of a significant period of research and development, the DuraOcean chair showcases true product innovation.
It’s a point of principle for many businesses to be as environmentally friendly as they can be, however there is one company that is priding itself on setting a new benchmark, and that is LifestyleGarden (under its parental company, ScanCom International).
ScanCom, together with LifestyleGarden, is raising the bar in regard to sustainable business in a way that has not been seen before within the garden and leisure sector. From corporate social responsibility, human and labour rights, and environmental management practices, every part of the business, from production to people, is heavily focused on ensuring the company’s motto ‘Doing Business the Right Way’ is carried out.
But what does being a sustainable business really mean? We focus on the extensive efforts that ScanCom’s team undertakes every day to achieve a true sustainable status.
Investing in truly green materials
We’re all familiar with terms such as FSC, ‘low-impact’, minimal waste and ‘recyclable materials’ but in a world that is waking up to the dangerous impact of certain materials, these terms are just the tip of the iceberg when it comes to better material control.
In a true industry first, LifestyleGarden® has confirmed that the leading outdoor furniture brand will be working exclusively in partnership with the Eden Project, helping to further drive their common goal of promoting environmental responsibility and sustainability.
This new partnership will see LifestyleGarden®’s garden furniture ranges supported by the Eden Project branding, helping consumers to make a more considered decision at the point of purchase. The new Eden Project ranges – available for the 2020 season – will also provide retailers with a unique point of difference in this normally traditional product category. The company will also have access to the Eden Project’s exclusive designs and patterns, providing the new range with an exciting selection of add-on sales opportunities, including accessories such cushions and deckchairs.
