Over the years Horizon has been heavily involved in a plethora of product sectors, however, the primary focus has always been on UK Outdoor Living & Garden Lifestyle Products.

Our story began around the turn of the century, with the founders learning their craft through design, manufacture and export of hardwood garden furniture and handicrafts from South East Asia.

Thinking outside the box

Horizon has rather interestingly been involved in so many weird and wonderful projects that have run alongside our core outdoor living focus.  These include beautifully restoring and importing classic Vespa and Lambretta Motorcycles from Vietnam, developing rice husk fuel log manufacture and export from the Mekong Delta, pioneering dental industry products from southern China, importing recycled golf balls from the US, developing “faux grass” easy click tiles, developing di-bond sheets for commercial advertising and more recently a consice range of petrol and lithium garden power tools along with bespoke wheelie bins.
