Fordingbridge – the leading specialist design and build contractors of inspiring canopy, walkway and building solutions for the garden retail sector – are delighted to announce a guest feature for their Statement Stand at Glee 2019.
With over 50 years’ experience in helping businesses grow through their nationwide canopy and building service, the firm is excited to be partnering with the SOLEX Award winning DuraOcean® range from LifestyleGarden®, with each set containing 7kg of recycled “ghost gear” fishing equipment and ocean plastic.
“It certainly is a wonderful concept,” said Stephen Toone, Managing Director of Fordingbridge. “We take huge stock in our environmental impact, both commercially and personally, so it is great to be able to showcase this product, whilst also giving GLEE visitors a place to take in our stand.”
Fordingbridge has supported a number of ecological fundraising initiatives on a corporate level, such as Final Straw Solent which focuses on marine pollution, but many of the team also go on litter-picks and sponsored events in their own time.
“As we’re based near the coast, it’s only natural so many of the team feel an affinity with the sea,” Stephen confirms. “The state of the oceans and our approach to plastic is a very real problem and it’s great that products such as these from Lifestyle Garden are coming through.
“Fordingbridge has long had a focus on sustainable engineering and we’re excited to be showcasing a number of our latest projects and innovations from under our beautiful hybrid canopy next to the Retail Lab. We will be on hand to catch up with existing customers, welcome new clients, and even give visitors a chance to look around some of our larger projects for themselves.”
The DuraOcean® products from LifestyleGarden® will be on display on the Fordingbridge Statement Stand, number 19L20-M21
