Member Testimonials

  • “We wanted to become part of an organisation and what a great organisation to be a member of.  Good people to deal with, and some fantastic opportunities to meet like minded folks at organised networking events.”
    Steve Webb, Managing Director, Plant Magic Plus Ltd
  • “Joining GIMA has helped us gain insight more quickly and reliably than we could otherwise have done, and in a very friendly and supportive environment too. GIMA membership offers the opportunity to make great new contacts – not just buyers but other industry retailers and suppliers too. ”
    Susanne Pinnock, Sales & Marketing Manager, SteadyPost Ltd
  • “We chose to become a member of GIMA because the association sits at the very centre of the garden industry.  The Kärcher brand enjoys sales of over £100m in the UK, but as relative newcomers to the garden industry it greatly values the connections and support GIMA provides.”
    Phil Springall, Marketing Manager, Karcher UK
  • “Through GIMA membership, Briers enjoys profitable relationships across the entire garden industry. These relationships – and the ever-expanding network of contacts – have helped Briers become the business it is today. A highlight of our year was being nominated a finalist in the Supplier of the Year category at the GIMA Awards 2014.”
    Jackie Eades, Managing Director, Briers Ltd
  • Kelkay Ltd have now been a full member for over 6 years and [as much as we find the membership great value the financial benefits we gain are well worth the fee alone. Another important aspect is it also gives us an opportunity to speak with other manufacturers who are members to share ideas or issues we may have
