Only six months after launching, Irish company Global Flood Solutions has secured a major export deal with SG Baker, the UK’s largest international supplier of sandbags, and industrial/agricultural packaging. The Roscommon-based company will now supply 7,000 of its Big Bag System to SG Baker, in a deal that totals more than €2m in revenue.
The Big Bag System can be deployed faster than any other flood defence system and costs less per unit than more conventional measures. It is being supplied exclusively to SG Baker for the next three years.
The deal represents a major coup for the young company as SG Baker is already the biggest supplier of conventional sandbags in the UK; it has been the supplier of all sand bags to the British military for over forty years and also currently supplies eighty nine local authorities across the country.
