KINLEY MANUFACTURING PRODUCT INNOVATION AND DEVELOPMENT


What UK Manufacturing means to Kinley

At our East Sussex innovation centre our design team is constantly exploring trends in the landscaping industry, predicting and creating demand for new products. This design capability also means we can take new and bespoke products from design concept to installation in record time.

The innovation team also focuses on modifying existing products to make them even better quality, more cost-effective, more environmentally friendly, and both easier and safer to install.

We manufacture all our products to extremely high specifications and quality control standards, with rapid delivery of small batch production being one of our key customer benefits.

When the need for landscape edging was recognised by the founders of Kinley, back in the early 2000s, although the initial products were sourced in the USA, where garden and landscape edging was quite a mature market, our objective soon was to manufacture in the United Kingdom, for several reasons.

  • Reduce transport, improve our carbon footprint and our sourcing flexibility
  • We can develop and improve products according to the UK market demands
  • Nine stages of evolution before arriving at the current AluExcel design has given us a leading global product
  • Edging without bias concerning material, aluminium and steel, ExcelEdge can recommend what is best for the customer
  • Great products, with total flexibility and control of QUALITY, PRICES and LEAD times!
  • Opportunities to continuously develop new and better products for the future

The ability to negotiate and source raw material and manufacture both stock and bespoke products has been a major step forward for the company, increasing our value to the contractors, especially in higher demand like we are currently.

In addition to metal, having recently invested in a laser sintering 3D printer, we are now able to manufacture both prototypes and parts for the terrace system, enabling us to respond to recent urgent requirements after a wind uplift incident in London.  Such a response would not have been possible without this machine, so we are now building relationships with senior people in one of the largest developers in the country, which should prove a significant positive benefit in the future.

Manufacturing in-house could not have come at a better time, having invested throughout 2020 on some new machinery to increase our production output, with Brexit final and complete and additional paperwork required for importing of products.  Not to mention the additional transport costs, which have gone through the roof with so much higher demand and a higher level of administration and sometimes the duty, involved.

Whenever a situation arises that we are not able to manufacture products ourselves, our priority is always to source within the UK, as we believe in supporting our home economy.  Britain has entered a new era, and those who are geared up to meet the challenges, will surely be the ones to succeed!
