Displaysense has reported a 15% increase in sales of their flat pack products in comparison to already healthy figures from 2008

With large high street stores such as MFI going into administration and other suppliers struggling with the economic downturn, the DIY industry is now heading into an unpredictable year of business. Displaysense, an online retail display provider, is however bucking this current trend with month on month increasing sales of their flat pack products.

Displaysense, an online mannequins and shop display provider based in Bishops Stortford, has reported a 15% increase in sales of their flat pack products in comparison to already healthy figures from 2008.

With a product portfolio of over 1600 products, of which 30% of its dedicated retail shop range is flat pack, the company is set to ride this success for some time, providing a glimmer of hope to the struggling retail industry.

The company has opted for more flat pack additions to their range over the past year as they are an affordable alternative to fully assembled products. The notable saving is in the cost of shipping, with reduced charges due to the compact nature of the packaging, which is a saving that can be easily passed onto the buyer. Investing more in flat pack is ideal for the company as their customer base ranges from retail and general business right down to home users, all of which are calling out for more of these items.

Steve Whittle the marketing manager at Displaysense has stated that he is not surprised with this activity, commenting that “as a business, we make a point of sourcing unique products that our competitors might not currently have available. From our display cabinets, right down to our collapsible clothes rails, all of our flat pack products have had a very successful year and we hope this continues right through 2009 as our range continues to expand.”

He continued, “We don’t sit on our success. We’ve already doubled our range over the course of the year having seen the initial successes of our display cabinet range.”

This news comes at a time when retail industry like for like sales has seen an unexpected growth of 1.1% in January, a rise which has not been seen since October 2008.

Displaysense, who have hinted at big changes in the coming months, are excited at the opportunities that 2009 will bring and hope that this flat pack growth bubble doesn’t burst or fall to pieces any time soon.

Leading Online Jeweler Welcomes Benchmark To Its Distinguished Roster Of Designers

Titanium-Jewelry.com, a leading online retailer of mens wedding bands, tungsten rings, titanium rings and unique contemporary jewelry designs for men and women, announced today the addition of Benchmark Tungsten wedding bands to its existing collection of the world’s finest titanium and tungsten rings and wedding bands.

“Like their namesake, Benchmark is known for specializing in exquisitely designed and crafted tungsten wedding bands, and it is an honor for us to make their designs available to our customers,” said Ron Yates, founder, Titanium-Jewelry.com. “Having the distinction of being Benchmark’s premier online distributor, Titanium-Jewelry.com reinforces its position as a leader in alternative wedding bands and jewelry made from state-of-the-art metals such as titanium and tungsten.”

With 40 years behind the name, Benchmark is engineered for comfort. As the first to introduce the “Comfort Fit” design to the United States, Benchmark’s designs create a better fit with curved inner design that doesn’t cut into the wearer’s finger. Benchmark uses the patented TC850 tungsten carbide, which is a hallmark of the only three licensed suppliers in the world authorized to sell and distribute the highest caliber tungsten carbide rings. As a member of this elite group, Benchmark has mastered precision-setting technologies, allowing a ring to showcase most of a gem’s surface while the secure setting protects the precious stones they support.

Elemis Has Added To Its Anti Ageing Body Care Range With The Introduction Of The New Pro-Collagen Body Serum Intensive Lift

Studies have shown that as skin ages, collagen and elastin degenerate and cell cohesion loosens as the skin loses calcium. Pro-Collagen Body Serum Intensive Lift is a non-sticky, easily absorbed gel-serum that stimulates the fibroblasts (network of skin fibres) to speed up cell-communication and aid the production of collagen and elastin.

The serum harnesses micro-lattice technology which has been designed specifically for the body to target ageing skin. The technology uses Mexican skin tree and amino acids to strengthen the cohesion between skin layers. A lattice forms to protect against external forces while the acids stimulate the skin’s Natural Moisture Factor (NMF).

As part of the Pro-Collagen range, Elemis Pro-Collagen Body Serum Intensive Lift is an anti ageing product designed to restore skin firmness and elasticity to instantly tighten slackened skin of the buttocks, abdomen, arms and neckline.

Noella Gabriel, the director of product and treatment development at Elemis, said: “An ageing skin is a thinning skin and as skin ages it starts to slacken and lose elasticity. Whatever your age, stress levels effect your skin so good skin maintenance is a must.

“Elemis recognises that consumers are more aware, educated and sophisticated in their needs from a body product than ever before. Not only do they want to moisturise but want to address their anti ageing concerns. I am very excited to have created a product to meet this demand.”

Noella continued, “We at Elemis have sourced natural, powerful ingredients from around the world to deliver a super soft after-feel on the skin, designed to be layered without feeling the overload.”

The natural ingredients used in the new body serum include paracress (a flower bud originating from South Africa), peptide pea pods (which stimulate skin firmness and elasticity while reinforcing the skin’s natural moisture) and acacia gum (which creates an immediate skin tightening effect and wrinkle filler).

The full Elemis anti ageing body care range, which was originally launched in February 2008, also contains Elemis Pro Collagen Radiantly Smooth Body Cream and Pro-Collagen Hand and Nail Cream.
