SMART celebrates Suffolk Day with a ceremony
SMART Garden Rooms, Offices & Studios, the leading Suffolk-based manufacturer of quality outdoor buildings this week (21 June) hosted a gathering of staff, clients and local dignitaries to celebrate the opening of its Thurston-based showroom.
Founded over two decades ago and successfully acquired through a management buyout in 2019 by its current owners, the company has experienced a massive growth in sales, turnover and staff levels – especially over the last two years.
Matt Moss, SMART’s managing director, explained: “As well as investing in our online and social media experience, we’ve also significantly upped our game in terms of the environmentally-friendly vans driven by our installation teams, our upgraded customer service teams and now in our newly-launched indoor showroom.”
This showroom, which is made up of fully furnished versions of all seven of the company’s designs, was formally opened on Suffolk Day by Mark Pendlington, a Deputy Lieutenant of Suffolk and a much-respected campaigner and businessman.
Mark commented on SMART’s focus on quality and praised both its growth and its ongoing support for Suffolk-based charities before cutting the ribbon and formally declaring the showroom open.
Matt added: “That was lovely to hear that from Mark. Although with a national reach, SMART is a Suffolk company with a Suffolk heart and we’re all about sharing our successes with our staff and the wider community.
“The new showroom really demonstrates the high standards of products, manufacturing and installation that has been the hallmark of the company. It offers potential customers a real-life experience to view and look around the solutions to their space and commuting problems.”
The SMART showroom is open to the public: Monday to Friday 9-5pm and Saturdays 10-3pm.
