Pagets visit to A&G's headquarters 'exceeds expectations'

Published:  30 April, 2012

IRELAND: Acheson & Glover (A&G) recently invited merchant customers to visit its headquarters in Ireland.

Martin Kirk of Pagets in Sheffield was among the group of customers who attended. He described his visit as "exceeding all expectations", and was extremely impressed. "A&G has an excellent setup and it was clear a lot of investment has gone into achieving that. The team is excellent - everyone is courteous and knowledgeable, and I was seriously impressed particularly with how helpful and knowledgeable the factory staff were. The whole visit gives me even more confidence in A&G's products, the company and the staff."

A&G is a relatively new supplier for Pagets, but is rapidly becoming their main supplier for their basic and premium hard landscaping products. Martin continues: "Until now Pagets has been mainly stocking A&G's Country Cobble block paving and some of its Plaza and Terrapave flagstones. But we've had such fantastic feedback from customers on their range, supported by the display A&G put in last year, that it's time to bring in the rest of the range. We will now be taking stock of A&G's River Stone, Boulevard, Strada, more Terrapave and adding Setts and Kerbs to our offer too.

"A&G's broad colour choice helps us stand out from competing suppliers - it really is quite different and unique from competing brands and their new Outside Rooms brochure is great too."
