An Unprecedented Year...
2020 has been a year of turmoil and unpredictability for many, however one positive to take away from the last few turbulent months of restrictions is the re-discovery of our love for the outdoors.
This has led to the huge surge of visitors to pub gardens, outdoor dining areas and other outdoor communal areas, and with a need to remain safe, these desirable spaces have become country-wide hotspots.
And so, as a specialist supplier and installer of outdoor living products, we have seen a mighty increase in the interest of products that enhance these valuable outdoor experiences, such as retractable awnings, glass verandas, butterfly awnings and large umbrellas.
In a positive light whilst moving forward, now is a great time to start thinking about how you will be transforming your business’s outdoor space in time for spring 2021.
The demand for these outdoor solutions is huge right now, so we advise that you do start to consider what kind of product will be best for your business, so that you’re able to place an order before it is too late!
Here is a word from Nathan Dove, Samson’s managing director regarding this year’s unique circumstances:
Like so many companies in the UK, Samson Awnings and Commercial Awnings UK faced extreme uncertainty during the Covid 19 pandemic. It all happened at what would normally be the start of our busiest period in early spring. This year however, after the initial countrywide shutdown, the demand for gardening and general outdoor living products tripled and we, like nearly everyone else in this industry, have struggled to cope with demand. Manufacturers of goods also have large backlogs still and we now look towards orders placed now being ready for delivery or installation in 2021. We encourage anyone thinking of an awning, canopy, glass veranda, large umbrellas for commercial or domestic use to place their orders as soon as possible, even if it is required for next spring season onwards.
We see further possible delays on manufacturing as local outbreaks cause staff to isolate from factories and supply chains disrupted. Very little of what we sell is off the shelf and is generally made to order. We would like to thank all our customers to date, and also apologise for any who did not receive their replies or quotations as fast as normal.
We are staying positive about this country's future and see a lot of very beneficial changes in people's opinion about spending more time outdoors for their overall health and wellbeing.
Stay safe and healthy….
