Kelkay, the market-leading manufacturer and distributer of aggregates, is continuing to expand their sales and market share.
To support this sales growth, Kelkay has an ongoing investment programme for the purchase of new machinery and processes that will increase and develop the company’s product offering.
To maintain and increase this level of growth, Kelkay is also investing in several areas of management, including the appointment of two established senior sales executives. The details of which will be revealed shortly.
These recent developments mean Kelkay is continuing to invest to meet ever increasing demand for its products. According the Garden Centre Association (GCA) Barometer of Trade, year on year sales of hard landscaping products are up by 17.47 per cent across the industry.
Anthony Harker, managing director at Kelkay, said: “We have had a terrific start to 2015, we have gained many new customers and we are preparing to welcome many more, justifying our decision to invest over £1 million in new machinery and the addition of two new sales professionals to our team.”
Kelkay continues to ensure ‘industry leading’ stock availability and delivery lead times, especially at peak times and offers a £500 carriage paid order service across the UK facilitated by Kelkay’s dedicated transport logistics department, ensuring that orders are delivered within three days of being placed and in many instances, within two days.
Kelkay’s brand portfolio includes Borderstone®, Build Mate, easyfountain® and Henri®, providing retailers with a single source of supply for a wide range of garden products. These include aggregates, stone, water and garden features, paving, edging and walling, building materials, horticulture and winter products.
By promoting aggregates, paving and fountains with eye-catching point of sale, merchandising units and display stands, garden retailers have seen sales grow in these categories.
