Hallstone hits half-million milestone in bulk bag production

Hallstone, a leading manufacturer of premium topsoil products for the building and landscaping trades, has celebrated the sale of its 500,000th bulk bag.


The milestone sale comes hot off the back of Hallstone’s best-ever sales year with the business up more than 50% year-on-year from 2022 to 2023.


2023 saw the brand, part of the Rolawn group, firmly establish its position as a supplier of choice for the UK’s leading national and independent builders’ merchants, including Huws Gray, whose Grantham branch received the 500,000th bag.


To celebrate the achievement and to mark Huws Gray Grantham being the lucky recipient, Jonathan Hill, Sales & Marketing Director for the Rolawn Group presented them with a special point of sale package and vouchers for all staff at the branch to share in a celebratory meal.


Robin Hollingworth, Grantham Branch Manager thanked Hallstone, saying, “We’re delighted to be celebrating with Hallstone, it’s a pleasure working with the team and we really appreciate this gesture. Their collaborative approach makes them a go-to supplier and that seems to be reflected in their sales and this latest achievement.”


To discuss business development opportunities, contact Hallstone via or ring 01904 757374.
