Truck Helps Garden Firm Deliver Summer Sales
Leading national garden machinery distributor Henton and Chattell has had a great summer with the warm weather prompting increased sales across the UK.
To keep its supply chain moving, Henton and Chattell invested £40k in a new delivery vehicle, anticipating the busy summer which saw deliveries and sales grow substantially helping to achieve their highest annual sales.
As part of its commitment to keep Britain gardening, Henton and Chattell bought a new flatbed truck from our Lenton Lane site.
It is the only truck on the site which has a fleet of eight vans, delivering everything from replacement parts to ride-on mowers. As well as its trade arm Henton and Chattell is a premier dealership for John Deerre plus has its own retail showroom ‘MowerWorld’.
The warm summer prompted increased sales of garden machinery across the UK, with consumers spending more money on garden equipment in the first half of 2014 than in the same period last year!
Wayne Hallam, Service Manager at Henton and Chattell, commented: “The investment in our fleet was essential to meet market demand this summer. From our 80,000 square feet of warehouse in London Road, the Logistics Team need to be able to despatch, on demand, any product, to any destination, countrywide, in most cases the ‘next day’ and having trucks we can rely on is a massive part of our service.//php comments_template( '', true ); ?>
