As the largest of the Independent Hardware Retailers, Orgill is a tremendously important Dealer Market.

The Orange County Convention Center in Orlando, FL was buzzing with excitement over Evolve Composites’ presentation of innovative Outdoor Lawn & Garden and Home Improvement products. The Orgill Dealer Market is a twice-annual trade show that exhibits manufacturers of hardware products with thousands of attendees from around the globe.

“Anyone wanting to make a real presence in the hardware and home improvement arena were at the Orgill Spring 2013 Dealer Market,” explained Steve Rizoti, Evolve Composites’ Director of Sales – Home Improvement and Building Materials. “This is Evolve’s biggest opportunity to build new relationships and reconnect with current ones about the exciting new products we have to offer.”

Attendees come to the show looking for new suppliers and the next ‘big’ product, which is exactly what Evolve is hoping to provide.

“We are very excited to be showcasing our top-selling products: the Fire Pit Kit, Garden Block, Handi-Block and the Polyslab Utility Base. These are the must-haves for every homeowner with their innovative design and practical versatility,” he said.

Two products that really came to the forefront at the Orgill Spring 2013 Dealers Market were the Garden Block and the Fire Pit Kit. The Garden Block is an existing product that experienced a substantial increase in interest with the release of the new Ridgestone pattern along with the addition of three new colors. Adding to the ever-popular Terra Cotta, the new Limestone, Charcoal and Earth colors have proved to be very popular with buyers. Along with on-trend colors, the double-sided Garden Block offers customers a unique flexibility, creating both straight and curved lawn and garden edging without the gap that traditional lawn and garden block edging created. This gap free edging, and the truly unique flexibility of trimming or cutting the Garden Block with standard tools, gives the Evolve Composites Garden Block the advantage for ease of transportation and installation in the manufactured stone garden block market.

Following the trend of the ultra lightweight and easily installed Garden Block, the Fire Pit Kit resonated with the hardware dealers as well. Incredibly lightweight and extremely durable, the Fire Pit Kit seemed to be a natural fit for the buyers and consumers attending the Orgill Spring 2013 Dealers Market. Unlike the cumbersome and heavy traditional fire pits on the market, Evolve Composite’s Fire Pit Kit comes complete, includes a reusable cover, weighs in at ⅓ the weight of most standard fire pits and at ½ the cost! Adding to the appeal is the ease of transportation and installation, making this Fire Pit Kit a natural fit with the DIYer as well as the retailer. This is a three-ring kit constructed of Evolve’s patented Evo-Crete Concrete, resulting in a lightweight composition while maintaining extreme durability. “The kit is easily assembled and dis-assembled for simple mobility and resists heat transfer far better than traditional concrete materials,” explained Rizoti. “With families investing more money on their yards, decks and outdoor living areas, the Fire Pit Kit is the perfect addition for spring sales growth.” The Fire Pit Kit can be used as a non-modular backyard accessory, or it can be disassembled for seasonal storage or even used while camping. The versatility of the kit is limitless.

Another product garnering attention at the Orgill Spring 2013 Dealer Market was the Polyslab Utility Base. The Polyslab Utility Base’s innovative design delivers superior performance by combining channel support with a patented rib structure that transfers weight directly to the ground. With the Polyslab’s super lightweight attribute and nesting ability, it also cuts down on space and time when transporting. “The Polyslab Utility Base can be used all around the home, on RV’s, at the beach and even sporting events. The list can go on and on because depending on the individual user’s need, this extremely practical utility base can be adapted for any situation. The versatility of the Polyslab makes it a great tool for any homeowner to have,” Rizoti said.

Leading the way within the deck building community is the popular Handi-Block. Handi-Block is an ultra lightweight, precast concrete deck pier made of a special formula that utilizes concrete and recycled poly fibers to create a product that is super strong and produces a much smaller carbon footprint. The Handi-Block is a proven multi-purpose foundation block for the home improvement DIY customer or contractor that can be used for a broad range of projects that include garden sheds, decks, patios and more, Rizoti explained.

Evolve Composites has proudly announced their partnership with Selleys, Australia’s top manufacturer of BBQ grill cleaning products, expanding the Selleys premium brand into the U.S. market. Selleys’ family of BBQ grill cleaning products will compliment the lineup of Evolve's outdoor home improvement products this coming spring.

Also included in the lineup will be a BBQ Tough Grease and Grime cleaner spray-on bottle, BBQ Exterior Clean & Shine to keep grills looking new and a BBQ Area and Furniture Cleaner that can be used to keep the entire outdoor area clean. “We are very excited to be partnering with Selleys. Selleys is one of the top five most recognized brands in Australia. These grill cleaning products are the must-haves for every homeowner with a BBQ grill,” explained Rizoti.
