Celebrating its 10-year anniversary in 2014, Natural Paving Products (UK) has enjoyed its most successful year to date – with an unprecedented growth in sales, significant expansion of its Indian supply chain and a string of medal wins during the show garden season.
Malcolm Gough, business development director at Natural Paving Products, said: “Our tenth anniversary year has truly been our most successful to date, as we continue to develop our position both in our home market and our overseas production operations. This has been achieved through a clear and unwavering commitment to high-quality products, produced in an ethical and responsible manner, as well as the strong relationships we have forged over many years with our merchant partners. We’re looking forward to building on this success for many more years to come.”
As a key importer of Indian stone, Natural Paving Products has invested heavily in its own quarries – meaning it is the only supplier that is able to offer a truly end-to-end service, with complete assurances of both quality and ethical supply processes. This year, the company has also heavily invested in its two factory facilities close to the quarries, which will enable it to offer an even wider range of the sawn and bespoke stone products that are becoming increasingly popular within the UK market.
What’s more, the new centrally located factories will greatly reduce the amount of waste material that is generated and will slash the carbon emissions associated with transporting the stone, thus minimising Natural Paving Products’ environmental impact.
Closer to home, Natural Paving Products has cemented its route to market, by formalising its Merchant Only Policy this year. From the beginning, the company has sold its products exclusively through its network of merchant partners and by setting this policy in writing, it hopes to make a clear commitment to supporting and protecting this mutually beneficial dynamic long into the future.
