The growth in demand for landscaping materials, particularly over the last year with more people spending time at home and renovating their gardens, coupled with our commitment to increase their product offering for our customers, meant we were looking for a composite decking product. Having previously stocked a composite decking product that didn’t meet our requirements, it was crucial that the new product was a high quality, easy to install system with consistent stock levels.
In 2018, Taylor Maxwell partnered with Composite Prime to supply their composite decking range. Made from FSC 100% wood flour and recycled plastic, Composite Prime decking is engineered for durability, sustainability and ease of installation. With a range of different board sizes, colours and finishes, Composite Prime decking is a quality product that Taylor Maxwell are proud to supply to over 100 stockists across the UK.
Along with Taylor Maxwell, we are members of the National Buying Group (NBG), a UK-wide partnership of independent merchants. Formed in 2003, its partners are dedicated to improving profitability and business opportunities by committing to buy products together, whilst providing an efficient route to market for suppliers. With an existing relationship in place through the supply of roofing battens, the NBG provided an opportunity to establish a closer relationship between us and Taylor Maxwell.
Taylor Maxwell were pleased to put forward an offering for Composite Prime decking, a product which provided the perfect solution for use. Beginning with eight of our branches, we have seen great success from sales of Composite Prime year on year. Steve Blackmore, Branch Manager for Grant & Stone, High Wycombe said that “Composite Prime decking works well for us a business because of the quality of the product and the easy clip and screw system. Customers also love the range of options and colours available.”
We stock the HD Deck Dual and HD Deck XS ranges. The HD Deck Dual is dual-sided decking board, available in three reversible colour combinations including walnut/oak, antique/carbon and natural oak/slate, finished with a natural wood grain texture. The HD Deck XS is also a dual-sided decking board, available in three contemporary colours – lava, silver and walnut and finished with either thin or wide grooves. Steve Blackmore said, “Taylor Maxwell offer top quality service and we’re very pleased to be working together to offer this superior product to the market.”
Last year, Composite Prime launched a rewards scheme aimed at customers and suppliers of their composite decking. Customers who purchase the decking can submit a copy of their receipt to be entered into a prize draw and be in with a chance of winning several prizes, from a Lay-Z-Spa hot tub and pizza oven to a cheese tasting subscription and selection pack of wine. Suppliers of Composite Prime decking are also in with a chance of winning, as customers who submit their receipts state where they purchased their decking. The stockist with the most submissions in the month, wins! We are pleased to be involved with the rewards scheme and enjoy encouraging our customers to take part.
