Eden Industries Limited

Eden Industries Limited is a leading global supplier of shelving, bespoke fixtures and associated services. We provide in-store solutions to major retailers by offering competitive, cost effective, high quality products and an industry leading service. As store re-fits are inevitably time critical, we ensure that our customers benefit from industry leading delivery times and a reliable service.

As the retail sector is a fast paced environment, our aim is to ensure that we align our goals always with those of our customers to enable our business to form strong relationships so we can quickly respond to constantly changing needs.

As a Marmon Retail Services company we think globally to support customer needs, yet we keep things simple by offering a single source of supply across our extensive range of materials and manufacturing processes for anything from bespoke merchandising systems to modular shelving systems. Our international sourcing capability means that clients benefit from the cost efficiencies of our global purchasing power which helps to reduce costs.

Our turnkey approach means that we always deliver the complete concept from sourcing materials and manufacture right through to final delivery and installation. This is all supported by a complete project management service which our customers know they can rely on.

We are currently working towards the global environmental accreditation ISO 14001 as we recognise the increasing importance of sustainable issues to our business and our customers. As part of our work towards this accreditation, we have created a dedicated body that will be responsible for establishing and maintaining an environmental management system across each of our divisions so we can address both current and emerging sustainability issues.

The Sloane Group

The Sloane Group is a UK leading retail design and fixtures and fittings manufacturer. Its innovative approach improves the design, function and cost of major retailers’ fixtures and furniture and enables the successful delivery of new concepts to market making client’s stores better for their customers and easier for staff while increasing returns.

Sloane’s policy is to keep abreast of the latest developments in materials, process and technology, so it can consistently deliver savings without jeopardising the visual appearance of fixtures.

While recognising that initial cost savings are important, Sloane also encourages retailers to consider more than just the upfront cost to build a new store re-fit. As by focusing on the cost of manufacture alone, retailers could be incurring extra costs in other areas which could affect their business further down the line - and lead to greater environmental cost too.

So Sloane’s approach takes into consideration the complete lifespan of fixtures all the way through to disposal – in this way it can lower overall costs at the same time as reducing the impact on the environment and saving resources.

In recognition of the increasing pressure on retailers to be more sustainable, the Sloane Group has recently gained Furniture Industry Sustainability Programme’ (FISP) accreditation for sustainable best practice; this is also providing a basis of the company’s work towards ISO 14001 which it expects to achieve this year.
