Planters, UK firm in containers deal
Dubai, March 5, 2009
Planters Horticulture (PH) has entered into a partnership with UK’s Clarke and Spears International to produce plant pots and containers using the latest composite fibre technology.
The collaboration will help PH to use Clarke and Spears’ advanced composite fibre (AC) technology to produce containers that replicate the look and feel of materials in the ‘natural’ state, such as wood, metal and ceramics but are in fact manufactured from plastic and fibres, by incorporating many new techniques.
The units are said to be stronger, less expensive and it would be difficult to tell them apart from the genuine material.
The AC planters are also suitable for both interior and exterior landscaping and are available in a vast range of finishes and can be tailored-made for various environments.
Established in 1992, Clarke and Spears are now the largest designer and manufacturer of professional plant pots and containers in the UK. The containers produced using the AC technology are said to comply with UK environmental and ethical standards.
Planters are the leading interior landscaping company in the Middle East and the addition of Clarke and Spears to their portfolio will enable them to deliver greater choice to their customers, while remaining cost effective. All containers will be produced in Dubai to Clarke and Spears specifications.
“Clarke and Spears are a renowned name in the horticultural industry, their cutting-edge contemporary designs will bring more choice and versatility to the Middle East markets,” said Jonathan Pardoe, director, Clarke and Spears.
“Client satisfaction is of the highest priority to all at Planters and as such we feel it is important to present new and exciting designs and ideas to our clients,” he added. – TradeArabia News Service
