Company Background

Strata is a privately owned and financially solid company, manufacturing a wide range of Home and Office, Garden and Baby products for both the UK and worldwide markets. Strata bought the gardening brand Ward in 2001 and with that acquisition became one of the major suppliers of watering cans, water butts, compost bins and planters in the UK. At the end of 2013 the Company went on to buy the Sankey brand, creating an even bigger range of stylish, decorative planters, water butts and growing accessories. As well as manufacturing a large range of robust and attractive storage boxes for the home and office, including a variety of flexi tubs and baskets in different colours and sizes, Strata is also one of the leading suppliers of baby bath time products in the UK.

The Company’s manufacturing site is situated in the heart of the United Kingdom in Nottinghamshire, close to junction 28 on the M1 motorway, making it ideally placed to offer an unrivaled distribution to customers in all parts of the country and worldwide. The site enjoys state-of-the-art, 24/7 manufacturing with automation and ancillary equipment essential for highly competitive markets. The Company’s sound manufacturing base is enhanced by its use of real time computer-assisted stock control, linked to its sales order processing system. This sophisticated, networked computer system ensures that the Company copes efficiently and effectively with the rigorous demands of its customers.

All product development is carried out in-house. Strata’s product development programme is ongoing and the Company’s extensive market knowledge is incorporated into this process. As well as developing products for the general market, Strata also undertakes development of product that is customer specific and uses bespoke treatments for private label customers. As a UK based manufacturer, Strata is committed to meeting, and where possible exceeding, all UK and European legislation governing product quality, employment, health and safety, waste disposal and other environmental practices. Strata is proud to be one of the few remaining third generation, family run manufacturing businesses in the UK today and continues to grow year after year. The Company celebrated 25 years of manufacturing in 2014.
