A year ago one of the new exhibitors at Glee was Crest, set up by Nick Davies with backing from Westland Horticulture. A year on, Glee Daily News asked Nick about the reaction to Crest, one year on from their initial showing at Glee 2014.
“The reaction has been extremely good, we’ve had great reaction on our range of tools, we’ve had a lot of interest and a number of big orders placed on the new range of Garden Life and Flopro has been a resounding success.
“We have created a good alternative for the market on watering. We’ve got a good, better, best option we have re-designed a lot of the guns, a lot of the fittings, very much tuned into the customer requirement of no leaks.”
“Flopro is the good, Flopro plus is the better and then Flopro elite which is the metal option.
Flopro and Flopro plus are both made from virgin polymer, with the Flopro plus range being made from ABS plastic which is stronger, highly polished and it has super a supergrip connection which means it has a permanent connection that allows the hose to fit in deeper, therefore reducing the possibility of leaks, explained Crest's Lisa Blackmore, pictured with Nick Davies.
