Absolutely thrilled with our new garden. Very friendly and professional service. Would recommend.
Artificial surfacing specialists Sportex AL is now operating on a more level business playing field thanks to advice and support from South Kesteven District Council working with the Lincolnshire Chamber of Commerce. With more than 10 year's experience of sub-contracting experience of installing artificial synthetic surfacing, business owner Andis Lilientals needed help to develop his own independent business. Over the last year SKDC4Business adviser Paul Parkinson has helped Andis to improve the marketing of his business installing artificial grass, resin surfaces and sports surfaces using a customer focused website with testimonials and social media promotion. Now Grantham-based Sportex AL, which has completed work in the town including childrens' play areas, is better equipped to land bigger contracts in its own name. Andis is keen to progress from the sub-contracting work taking his team all over the UK on work from leisure centre refurbishment, football pitches, athletic tracks, multi use game areas, tennis courts, streetball pitches, playgrounds and even driveways, lawns and back yards. He had praise for business adviser Paul Parkinson, saying: "I have tried to get help before and was not impressed, but Paul was totally different. Paul explained how we could get the website working for us and what we needed to do to shift the direction of the business. "Above all he made me believe in myself." Andis is committed to both getting the price right and delivering a quality surface. "We like to have happy customers. We are well equipped to tackle any job, both large and small and we will go anywhere. I was in Penzance two weeks ago for just two days doing a sports surface and now we are working in Luton on a complete leisure centre refurbishment." The company's installation and maintenance team is highly skilled and every installation work is completed in best quality. All staff have Level 2 Health and Safety in the workplace qualifications and valid CSCS cards for work on construction sites.
I have had the pleasure of knowing Andis for many years, who has completed some fantastic sports surfaces for my projects. He is always professional, polite, helpful, and is clearly an expert and highly experienced in his field. He has ability of providing quality surfaces in tight timescales, ensuring that health and safety is never compromised. I would have no hesitation in employing Andi and Sportex Al teams in the future, and would gladly recommend him to others.
We had our drive and garden paths done in June with small gravel set into gluey mixture with the old surface not having to be removed. The whole job was completed in 2 1/2 days. They worked very well, clean and tidy, no mess to clean up and the whole surface could be walked in 3 hours. Andis is very polite had nothing is too much trouble for him it doesn't matter whether, its a large or small job. Plus he will get all materials required to do the job. We are extremely pleased with the whole job and would recommend him to anyone.
