Ivyline makes itself at home with new headquarters

by | Oct 18, 2022 | News | 0 comments

Ivyline, one of the sector’s garden, home and giftware suppliers, has recently undertaken a move to a new facility at the heart of Stoneleigh Park; a move designed to support the brand’s ongoing growth.

Moving from its old location in Coventry, Ivyline’s new headquarters has become home to the complete in-house team, which has seen its numbers double in the last year due to growing demand for Ivyline products. From sales and marketing to design, sourcing, and order management, the full team is now working under one roof, with the benefit of an onsite trade showroom to support product development and customer relations year-round.

Scott Thomas, Ivyline managing director, said of the new headquarters: “After a period of significant growth we came to realise that we were about to outgrow our old premises, so a move was vital to ensure that we could continue to service all our customers, both old and new.

“Stoneleigh Park is a superb location. Not only does it bring key events and exhibitions to our doorstep but, more importantly, the central location allows easy access for our customers that wish to get up-close and personal with our complete offering. Providing year-round access and support during the exhibition cycle, our showroom is an invaluable resource, and one we know our customers will appreciate, as we look to expand Ivyline’s reach even further.”

Since moving to Stoneleigh Park, Ivyline has expanded its offering into furniture, introduced new Christmas ranges, and, most recently, lifestyle gardening collections, whilst creating even more outdoor living ranges. The expansion of the in-house design team has also enabled Ivyline to create more design cohesion across multiple collections, whilst the team – alongside Ivyline’s dedicated sourcing team – has been better placed to find new supply partners that uphold the same sustainable values across material management and manufacturing processes.
