Softub will be exhibiting at this year’s FutureScape event. Pro Landscaper spoke to Softub ahead of the event to find out more about the company, the products it supplies and the next step for it.
Can you tell us a little about Softub?
We are a small friendly team based in York. We look after Softub customers across the whole of the UK and Ireland. We have been trading since 2011 but the Softub brand has been going strong for over 35 years.
What are the main products you supply?
Our main product is Softubs, a unique brand of American hot tubs that come in a range of sizes and colours and can be combined with beautiful surrounds made from either rattan or wood as well as a selection of luxurious garden gazebos.
What are the key selling points of your products?
Softubs are made from a very durable, lightweight insulation foam which was originally developed by NASA for the construction of space capsules. It is this unique material that makes Softubs light and easy to move and install, making them the ideal choice for gardens with tricky access or roof terraces and balconies. They are also incredibly energy efficient and luxuriously soft and comfortable. While these features are rather clever it is usually the beautiful design of our Softubs that customers fall in love with. A Softub is a garden feature in its own right; classy, understated and stylish.
Where do you deliver to and what are your delivery times?
We operate nationwide with lead times between one and six weeks.
What’s the next step for the company?
We have had an increase in enquiries from customers who are having their garden designed and are looking for a product that will add to the overall appeal of their design or will solve a logistical problem such as difficult access to a back garden or weight restrictions to a roof terrace. Due to this we would like to increase brand awareness among professionals in the garden industry and forge new partnerships with garden designers and landscapers at FutureScape this November.
