New Year Update 2015

Almost through January already and we are busy preparing for the season ahead. Bradstone and Stonemarket have launched their new product ranges as discussed in our post a couple of months ago. A late addition to the new products by Bradstone is “Mode”, a modern porcelain paving available in two surface finishes, each available in four colours. The porcelain paving concept seems to be gathering increasing momentum and popularity, which Bradstone have picked up on. The Mode paving slabs come in 600x600mm size.  Both the Bradstone and Stonemarket 2015 brochures are available to collect in store and we are impressed with both in clear easy to follow formats, neatly illustrating their range of products and providing inspiration to customers. Our new price guide has also been printed and again this can be picked up in store. We are looking at refreshing our outdoor show areas with some of the new Bradstone products as well as some existing popular ones. We have several new display boards on order from both Bradstone and Stonemarket and are hopeful of receiving these soon to showcase a number of additional paving ranges. Furthermore we now have an account with Brett paving and are ably to supply their products to order. We look forward to developing this relationship. Talking about displays, we have a couple of new display sheds due to arrive this week and we are excited about the Sunningdale Summer House we have coming in. A modern style summerhouse.   Regarding other new products for 2015, Grange our main fencing supplier are launching a couple of new continental style panels as well as new types of...

In the last couple of weeks a website has been launched where you can buy full packs of Bradstone online and have them delivered nationwide. Check out the site. We are in the process of building our new main website as well. A few final things need to be sorted but we expect to launch the site in early October. We hope our new site is going to be user-friendly with a more clean and modern feel to our current site. The aim is to have simple navigation and an improved search function. You will also be able to add products to a basket/list for a quote request. Having been quite busy this year we have had to purchase another teletruk forklift to cope with the loading and unloading of lorries in our yard and to keep the place tidy and organised. Mini Me is happy as this one has a “door” so he can stay nice and dry! We have also invested in a device called “Nail Biter” which is in effect a large magnet on wheels that can be pushed around the yard to pick up loose nails etc. With regards to stock issues, we are pleased to say that the fencing situation finally seems to be easing with lead times shortening. Lap panels should be readily available for all sizes within the next couple of weeks and our suppliers are also trying to get the lead time down on closeboard panels as well. Bricks are also becoming more readily available and we have stock of the Warnham Red,...
