Lyte Supplier Trip August 2022

Lyte Supplier Trip Blog Header


Gareth Monger, our Operations Director, visited the Lyte factory in Swansea on Wednesday 10th August as part of our annual visit, visiting suppliers to help maintain a close and working relationship with our suppliers. 

Our main reason for visiting Lyte this time was to see their manufacturing processes and get a close-up look at some of the new products that will be available on the website soon. 

Let's see what he got up to:  

Richard Dain greeted me and showed me around the factory floor, where I got to see Lyte's upgraded robot welding robot, which I have to say is an impressive piece of kit to see first hand. 

I also got to see the Lyte podiums being constructed by their robot wielding machine. 

We had the opportunity to discuss future promotions that customers will be able to take advantage of in the coming months, as well as a promotion for Lyte roof ladders that is currently running throughout September  

We also discussed the fact that roof ladders keep getting damaged on the way to our customers because the hook on the roof ladder is repeatedly being stood on during transport, resulting in a less-than-perfect ladder by the time it arrives at the customer. To address this issue, we discussed the option of selling the roof ladder as a kit instead, so that the customer only needed to attract the hook one as it arrived. 

The trade triple section extension ladder is a product that we are particularly excited to add to the website and that should be live by the time this blog post goes live, as I was very impressed with the D shaped double bubble rungs, which give the ladder extra straight to the extension ladder. 

Overall, I had a fantastic time at Lyte; thank you for having me visit, and I hope to return soon. 


“It was a pleasure to meet with the Lyte team again, discuss future opportunities to collaborate and support UK manufacturing by increasing our offering of their products.
