Post date: 18 Feb, 2021
Products over the last 10 years have established themselves as market
leaders across Benelux and France, having built their success
designing cutting edge innovations in the form of user-friendly
landscaping solutions with water permeability at their core.
Stone Group have worked in partnership with ECCO Products from
conception, distributing and marketing the ECCOGRAVEL product under
their own brands CEDAdrive and CEDApath.
Products and CED Stone are building upon their long-established
relationship to drive awareness and expand the full range of ECCO’s
innovative water-permeable landscaping solutions across the UK and
Ireland. The first step in this process is for CEDAdrive and CEDApath
to be rebranded to ECCOGRAVEL.
we begin to introduce the full range of ECCO products to the UK
market, this rebrand is an obvious and necessary step. It will not
only help to create a familiarity between the customer and the
products but will also cement the bond between our two companies.”

a growing awareness of increasing flooding issues across the UK,
there is a significant need to accelerate the use of water-permeable
products and solutions in landscaping and construction projects, to
both limit and prevent the impact of flooding. The MET Offices “state
of the climate report”
suggests that extended periods of extreme winter rainfall are now 7
times more likely compared to previous decades and the risk of
flooding is up by at least 20% with some areas seeing a 90% increase.
The evidence is that this is only going to continue unless we take
use of water-permeable products and solutions in landscaping and
construction has become commonplace in mainland Europe due to its
lower land level. At ECCO Products not only do we understand the
importance of water permeability on the environment, but we also
understand that our products must be practical and effective for
installers and end-users. Whilst water permeability is at our core,
we design our products to resolve other issues and challenges faced
in construction and landscaping.
“The team at ECCO Products are excited to be investing significantly for
the first time in the UK market, it has always been an ambition, now
working with CED Stone and our UK team we hope to distribute our full
range of products across the UK and Ireland and support the UK in its
mission to reduce the impact of flooding.” Christophe
Van Hoorde Director, ECCO Products.
staged rollout of ECCO’s full range of products will take place
throughout 2021 starting with ECCOGRAVEL for providing a secure and
permeable solution for gravel surface and DRAINBASE a water buffering
support system for synthetic turf projects.
Christophe for the first time, all those years ago, it was easy to
see his enthusiasm, belief and excitement in his new product. It has
been a great pleasure of mine, together with a dedicated Depot team,
to drive the development and understanding of this innovative product
throughout the UK. CEDAdrive has enjoyed great success and by
utilising our six nationwide depots is now recognised throughout the country as a quality SUDS compliant solution for driveways, paths and
years have passed and I truly believe the time is now right to build
on the success of CEDAdrive, and introduce the full range of products
available to us. Our ultimate aim is to have all ECCO Products
available to purchase from your local CED Landscape depot, and we are
thrilled to be expanding our range of permeable landscaping solutions
and continuing our long-established partnership with ECCO Products.”
