Kelkay wins Great Western Partnership business

by | Feb 7, 2020 | News | 0 comments


Kelkay has won new listings for their aggregates in the seven-strong Great Western Partnership (GWP).

The win comes after the successful launch of the new look range at GLEE in September. Fiona Newton, buyer for GWP, met with the Kelkay sales team.
New orders are being processed and merchandising is underway in Castle Gardens, Brimsmore Gardens, Poundbury Gardens, Plymouth Garden Centre, Bernaville Nurseries, Monkton Elm Garden Centre and Merry Harriers Garden Centre.
The new category set up will be ready for the expected upturn for landscaping products in Spring. Fiona Newton commented “I dropped on to the Kelkay stand at GLEE on the recommendation of a colleague. I had no real expectations.
“But when I saw the aggregate offer and the new point of sale, I was keen to bring the proposition to the whole group.
“We’re very pleased with the way the Kelkay range fits into our offer. The service from Scott McCabe and the rest of the team has been great.” Kelkay expect their business with GWP to grow as a result of the new category listing.
