North West-based company Vivark, part of the First Ark Group, has launched a new range fencing panels and gates for trade and fencing stockists which are socially manufactured, meaning that profits from the sale of the panels will be reinvested back into local communities.
The launch of the New Leaf fencing and gate range is said to be integral to Vivark’s plans to expand and diversify its products and services and is complementary to the grounds maintenance services it already delivers.
With a 15-year quality guarantee, the New Leaf range is ‘competitively priced and made with premium materials’. It specifically aims to minimise the continual replacement of fencing by using pre-tanalised timber for longer life and weather protection.
The range includes two styles of panel – Raven (ventilation panels) and Finch (feather edge) – which are both well-known for their durability and longevity, Vivark says. Produced in a professional workshop environment, the panels are created using a combination of hardwood and softwood, sourced from responsibly managed FSC (Forest Stewardship Council) forests. Both standard and bespoke sizes are available in a regular dark oak finish with other colours available on request.
Vivark executive director Tony Cahill said: “Vivark is always looking to deliver new products and services which are high quality and offer great value to local businesses and suppliers.
“By launching New Leaf, we’re ensuring trade and fencing stockists have access to quality, competitively priced products that are professionally manufactured by a skilled team based in the North West of the UK.
“As the panels are socially manufactured, the profits made from the sales of the fences and gates will be reinvested directly back into the community. Uniquely, this means that customers will be contributing positively to long-term changes in local communities through their purchasing.”
