Garden watering and spraying

Offering gardeners the most innovative and satisfying solutions. With its HOZELOCK, BERTHOUD, LASER and COOPER PEGLER brands, the EXEL Industries Group offers innovative and high-quality watering and plant protection solutions to gardeners and professionals alike.

The business

Accelerating urbanization means that consumers increasingly consider their garden, terrace or balcony as another separate living area; a place where they can also enjoy their gardening hobby or passion.

Given the increasingly unpredictable climate with alternating periods of drought and rain, digital technology, home automation and the growth of online sales are all drivers of growth for the plant watering and protection business.

In addition, with stricter European plant protection product regulations poised to shape the consumer market, the natural gardening solutions we offer are well positioned to boost sales of our products in Europe.

Strategy

EXEL Industries Group has a four-pronged strategy for its garden watering and spraying activity:

  • focus our development efforts on the European market and emerging markets;
  • to be a leading provider of solutions alternatives to treatment;
  • accelerate our growth by using the digital revolution;
  • provide premium service to clients on all of our markets.
