Rolawn hit 160 million

Trade News / 16th August 2017

This week Rolawn proudly harvested and delivered their 160 millionth roll of turf. Since the company was founded in 1975 sales records have been kept allowing this unique moment to be identified. As a result, the roll of turf in question was photographed on its’ journey from the production field, through the unique Profresh® system that extends turf shelf life and then on to the customer. In true British tradition, this all happened on the wettest summer day experienced this year.

 

Turf awaiting dispatch

 

The lucky recipient of the turf in question is newly launched Rolawn stockist, Hassett Plant Centre of Pitsford, Northampton. Plant Centre Manager, Kevin Wells stated, “As a new business, the team and our customers at Hassett Plant Centre have been really pleased with the quality, service, and after sales that Rolawn and their products provide so it is no surprise that they have reached such a huge milestone”

Jonathan Hill, Rolawn Sales & Marketing Director commented, “We are very proud of this amazing achievement, and I would like to thank all of our customers who have made it possible. But, it would be remiss of me on this occasion not to highlight the work of the turf production team, the farm staff who work through all that the UK weather can throw at them, assisted by a first-class administration team, combining to manage a sophisticated and challenging process. They all help to make my life easier through their dedication and attention to detail which is why we are the growers of Britain’s finest turf!”

In recognition of this achievement Hassett Plant Centre have been provided with their turf order free of charge and a cheque for £500 is being donated to Rolawn’s nominated charity Greenfingers, who build sensory gardens for hospices in the UK providing care for children with life limiting conditions.
