Published:  18 April, 2011

BIRMINGHAM: Acheson & Glover (A&G), supplier of premium hard landscaping products, has joined Unimer to demonstrate its commitment and support to independent merchants.

Commercial director Stuart Cook explained: “Although A&G is well established in Ireland with most merchants stocking our hard landscaping products, we recognise we need to build our brand and reputation in Great Britain. Our focus is on independent merchants and on making a real difference to the way they do business.

“Unimer is an excellent vehicle for A&G to trade with customers using electronic invoicing. It’s a well-run organisation and important in being able to do business with independent merchants and buying groups.”

A&G is a family business with a head office in Northern Ireland. It is hard landscaping market leader in Ireland with a stunning and comprehensive range, produced in the most modern and advanced hard landscaping plant in the UK.

A&G is expanding in mainland Britain from an office in Birmingham and a nine-strong mainland based sales team. Its slogan ‘making it personal’ reflects A&G’s commitment to helping merchants grow their sales of hard landscaping with its fresh Outside Rooms concept, personalised service and support, and a merchant friendly attitude.
