Tony is responsible for the company’s sales of garden care and DIY products in the North West and achieved an impressive 23 per cent growth in sales over the year. This is the third time that Tony has clinched the award, having had previous successes in 2019 and 2015. The runners-up were Julie McLean who covers Hertfordshire, Bedfordshire, Oxford and surrounding areas. Third place went to Andy Looby who is responsible for sales in the Midlands.  The awards are based on a system that rewards continual growth over a twelve-month period.

The awards were announced during the Garland Products’ annual sales meeting, which this year took place for the first time by video link.

Following the sales meeting, Garland/Worth Gardening’s sales director, Mark Dedman said: “Congratulations to all of this year’s winners. Their achievements have helped us to drive sales through to a new level. In early September, when we announced the launch of 54 new lines, including environmentally friendly and GYO products, we had sales growth of around £1 million. The fact that this increase has now surged to £2 million and is still growing at an exponential rate is testimony to our dedicated nationwide network of sales agents and the support received from our manufacturing and administrative teams.”

The Garland Products Group specialises in the manufacture of plastic injection moulded products, all of which utilise 100 per cent recycled or recyclable plastics, including the product’s packaging. The company supplies a wide range of products for keen and hobby gardeners.
