For many British businesses 2012 has been a tough year full of challenges and difficulties, many provoked by the persisting economic situation.
Here at Bulldog Tools, particularly because we still manufacture in the UK, we have not been immune from these events. However, the Bulldog name is better known in 2012 than ever before and customers continue to tell us that we are their brand choice, no matter how tough the job.
Our highly skilled workforce continue to produce great quality tools for contractors, builders and gardeners, further strengthening the reputation of Bulldog Tools both within the UK and around the world. In the USA where we sell our tools under the ‘Clarington Forge’ brand, both our online and offline sales continue to grow with American gardeners who obviously recognise quality when they see it!
In 2013 we will continue to build the strength of the Bulldog brand and will be attending several shows so that we can meet and get to know our customers even better. We would welcome the opportunity to meet you at the following shows and exhibitions:
Top Drawer 13 Jan – 15 Jan (Trade Only)
Spring Fair International 3 Feb – 7 Feb (Trade Only)
Totally DIY 10 Feb – 12 Feb (Trade Only)
PHS Philadelphia Flower Show 2 March – 10 March
RHS Chelsea Flower Show 21 May – 25 May
RHS Hampton Court Palace Flower Show 9 July – 14 July
RHS Flower Show Tatton Park 25 July – 28 July
GLEE 2013 15 Sept – 17 Sept (Trade Only)
These shows will all be attended by our friendly staff who will be keen to answer any questions, help customers select the right tool for the job or just chat about what makes Bulldog Tools so special. We would thoroughly recommend that customers visit the RHS shows and in particular The Chelsea Flower Show which this year celebrates its centenary and showcases the very best in garden design.
We will also be featuring our new brand, Ethel Gloves at many of these shows including the RHS shows, where customers will have the chance not only to try on the gloves, but also to buy them too! Ethel will play an important role in our expansion plans for 2013 with many garden centres and retailers carrying Bulldog Tools and Ethel Gloves side by side.
Finally, Bulldog Tools would like to thank all our customers, friends and followers for supporting us over the last twelve months and wish you a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.
