A Year In The Life Of A Grass Factory

As 2012 draws to a close, we thought it appropriate to look back and share with our readers a little insight into what's been happening at our artificial grass factory - the oldest established factory of its kind in the whole of Britain.

Factory Open Day
In March we kicked off the Spring season by hosting a special event, opening our factory doors to landscapers.

We were inundated with requests for tickets and the day was a great success.

Landscapers from all over Britain came and observed our production line processes. They also were afforded the opportunity to receive specialist advice on installing artificial grass.



Popular Grass
The biggest increase in demand we witnessed this year was for artificial grass for pets, particularly dogs.

The British have long been regarded as a nation of dog lovers and this is proof if we ever needed it! It's not surprising to see this increase to be honest as artificial grass offers lots of benefits for pets.

Sports Grass
SIS Group Ltd is our parent company which this year has enjoyed unprecedented growth. Now recognised as one of the leading international suppliers of sports surfaces, our factory has been busier than ever working in support of their artificial pitch building and we are delighted to be a part of that success.

Special Offers
Having our own grass factory enables us to occasionally offer some great deals on a wide range of artificial grass carpet and 2012 has seen more people than ever before taking advantage of that.

Finally, we end this post by saying a big 'thank you' to all our customers, distributors and installers. We look forward to continuing our good relations with you all in 2013!
