Helping independents strengthen their decorative aggregate ranges

Published:  02 May, 2014

The recent NMBS Exhibition provided an excellent opportunity for Long Rake Spar to showcase more of its exclusive products, which have seen an unprecedented uptake by merchants.

The show offer – a free pallet of compost on all orders placed on the day – proved a huge incentive for merchants, who can enjoy the easy margin return this add-on product ensures.

The two competitions we ran to guess the weight of the aggregate contained in our cubes were a great talking point with more than 30 individual entries, featuring a wide scope of guesses between 4-38kg.

A free pallet of the product on display goes to both our winners:

  • Cube A - Actual weight 11.044kg – Winner, guessing 11.1kgs = Chris Jones, EH Smith Builders Merchants at Bovingdon
  • Cube B - Actual weight 11.316kg – Winner, guessing 11.3kgs = Kevin Gardner, TG Builders Merchants at Ellesmere.
