A Danish company, wishing to bring the production of their garden tools collection back to Europe from China, is looking for a manufacturer with experience in producing high quality garden tools under a manufacturing agreement. Ideally, the partner will be located either in Poland or Slovakia, but other East- and Central European countries will also be considered.
The Danish company has been active in home and garden products retail sales for the past 15 years and, in addition to selling their own collections which are designed in cooperation with several award winning industrial designers, they have also introduced new international brands with similar products to the Danish market. Their collections are sold online as well in Bauhaus, for example.
Their product range includes fire extinguishers, indoor miniature herb gardens, knives, smoke alarms and garden tools. The garden tools collection, currently manufactured in China, comprises both a set of small and large tools, with the latter being the first to be produced in Europe.
The collection consists of a rake, cultivator, hoe and circle hoe.
Materials used are wood and stainless steel and the first order will be 500 pieces in total, but as they expect the orders to increase and there's a possibility of bringing the production of the smaller collection back to Europe as well, the factory should have capacity for larger quantities.
They are looking for a partner with existing experience in producing garden tools and although a Polish or a Slovakian manufacturer is preferred, they are open to partners from other Eastern- and Central European countries, depending on the price/quality ratio.
The wood currently used is rubberwood, which is not always easy to find in Europe, so another bright wood could be used instead, like ash for example.
The shaft will be coated in varnish.
The metal part will be made of hardened stainless steel and sprayed with a special paint that enables long-term use in soil.
For the large collection which is to be produced first, the sizes range from 9 - 31cm in width and 1.4-1.7m in length.
The first order will be 500 pieces per style/item.
The partner needs to have manufactured garden tools before.
The requested partner needs to have a proven track record in manufacturing garden tools since the expected quality of the requested products doesn't leave room for anyone attempting to manufacture garden tools for the first time.
