Who We Are

Our Heritage

Our heritage in sustainable, environmentally-friendly products dates back to 2002, when one of our founding directors invented the Gutter Mate Rainwater Filter and Diverter.

Since then, our interest in cost-effective, environmentally-friendly living has gone from strength to strength. The GM8 Group is an umbrella for many brands with a common purpose – to help you protect the planet and save money.

We design, manufacture and source a wide range of sustainable living products that are available via our online brands. (Trade customers are welcome to contact us direct.) Creating and making our own product range gives us complete control of quality and, where needed, compatibility. This also assures you of pricing fairness across our sites.

Our roots as a family business mean that quality and service are extremely important to us. We strive to develop opportunities that offer smarter living and working – and are excited about our plans to bring you even more choice!
