Garden Trading invests £2m in next chapter of expansion

British outdoor and indoor furnishings brand, Garden Trading, has announced a strategic investment of £2m into its growth infrastructure.

Having established itself as a household name for over three decades, the company was acquired by Yorkshire Private Equity House, TIM Group Holdings, in December 2022.

Embarking on its new chapter of expansion, the company’s investment of a substantial £2m into the relocation of its operations is illustrative of its desire to uphold this vision.

Garden Trading’s move is to a state-of-the-art facility in Swindon, a new home for the business that features a bespoke product development space, which is devoted to sourcing and designing innovative pieces that align with the brand’s ethos.

Alongside this, the relocation includes a four-fold increase in warehouse capacity, promising distinct benefits to both retail consumers and trade partners.

Liam Gill, Managing Director of TIM Group Holdings, said: “This year’s been all about embracing change in the name of excellence. As part of a wider growth strategy, the relocation of our operations is a key milestone in Garden Trading’s journey, and we are really looking forward to embracing the opportunities that it will create.

“Our investment builds on the business’ ability to develop products that blend form with function and is demonstrative of our unwavering commitment to bring new designs to the market which will continue to elevate the everyday and offer timeless appeal to our ever-growing customer base.

“Our improved location and significantly increased warehouse capacity will also unlock an enhanced delivery proposition in both the consumer market and trade partner channels. This leaves us very excited for the year ahead, particularly as we prepare for the brand turning 30 in 2024.”
