Octoplus Products have been in touch to tell me of their new seat box, here's what they had to say:
Anglers across the nation have been snapping up a new superstrong but affordable Bank Seat Box from renowned British manufacturer Octoplus.
Launched in July, the seat box with adjustable legs and carry strap is made from a newly developed material which is virtually indestructible, even in cold temperatures. With an RRP of just £79.99, it was specifically designed to fill a gap in the market for a versatile, durable and great value all-purpose bank seat box which would appeal to anglers at all levels.
Enough stock was manufactured for the product launch to meet anticipated demand for the first six weeks. But in that six weeks the Lancashire-based manufacturer had to carry out two further production runs of the original quantity just to keep up with demand from retailers across the UK.
Feedback has been so positive that Octoplus is now launching three more options in the same great value range. The first is a spacious 62-litre lidded storage box made from the same super tough material and suitable for bait or any other equipment, launched with an RRP of £23.99.
Next is the same 62-litre box but fitted with a strong adjustable carrying strap with shoulder pad. Priced at £35.99 it is suitable for all types of angling, especially sea fishing. Finally there is a handy fishing toolbox with a hinged lid, removable insert tray and strong metal handle with ridged grip, priced at £20.49.
Octoplus spokesperson Lesley Henderson commented: 'Even though we believed there was a gap in the market, we were bowled over by the instant demand for our keenly-priced and built-to-last Bank Seat Box with adjustable legs.
'Because we manufacture right here in Lancashire we've been able to meet that demand at short notice, three times over, and get new stock out to our retailers and their customers. We've also reacted quickly to customer feedback and been able to produce new options in the same range, again without having to wait weeks for stock from overseas suppliers.
'That's the glory of British manufacture - our retail partners win and, more importantly, the end user gets what they want when they want it.'
