Sweeping Changes for Equestrian Industry!
With the all NEW Gorilla Broom® Complete System for Stable Yards premiering at BETA International 2016
Gorilla Broom® The trusted stable management system.
The originators of Tubtrugs®, Faulks & Cox Ltd. have developed and added to their super-successful Gorilla Broom.®
“The Gorilla Broom has been a fantastic part of our range and so we decided to expand the concept out to cover all the situations that occur in and around stable yards”, says Chris Birch, Sales Manager at FCL.
“The two stiff bristle brushes have built-in scraper blades for hard-to-shift lumps, an anti-clog gap which also cuts down on flying dust, and the new deep-set handle is the toughest on the market with a choice of four coloured tips. Solid plastic makes sure the heads don’t crack in the wet or lose their bristles. The head and shaft are of space –age aluminium colour which has proved really popular as it looks so professional.
The Gorilla Broom® range boasts a sturdy, improved design, with steel core and a weather resistant hard wearing plastic coating. Available in four popular colours, Pink, Pistachio, Purple and Yellow. All in all there are six styles including a rubber bristle brush with squeegee and a stiff bristle hand brush,” adds Chris.
“Gorilla Brooms® are fulfilling a need for a sensible quality approach to the multiple cleaning situations arising in the equestrian market” says Dean Cox, MD. “The whole range of broom heads plus handles can be displayed effectively and profitably on our Profit Pack™ stands which take little room of the shop floor. Header cards are provided and make picking a suitable brush easy and even pleasurable!
In the same way Tubtrugs® have dominated the equestrian market, Gorilla Brooms® are set to define the brush market and create a profitable trading environment for years to come.”

NEW POS designs for 2016
With improved product lines, comes evolved merchandisers.
Brooms can be tricky to display and sell effectively, but the newly designed Gorilla Broom® POS is minimum fuss for the modern retailer. The all-in-one structure holds an impressive 18 x 147cm coloured handles, and 18 x 50cm broom heads.
Free-standing, the structure saves valuable shelf space, uses minimal floor space, and effectively displays the Gorilla Broom® stock in an easy to access design under the Gorilla Broom® header card.
The colourful and lightweight alternative to the traditional shovel
Available in Pink, Sky Blue, Pistachio, Grey, Purple and red, the Tubtrugs Shovel® is sure to bring big colour to cleaning up the yard.
Engineered from one piece of durable Polypropylene, the shovel is non sparking, and virtually indestructible. Made to the same high standards as the Tubtrugs® Flexible range, the Tubtrugs® Shovel is light weight, UV Ray resistant, Frost resistant, food grade, and most importantly pet safe.
With its wide blade to shift more with minimal effort, customers will wonder why they ever used anything else.
