Rolawn moves into new head office

Turf supplier Rolawn has announced that it has moved into its new purpose-built head office.

After 40 years based at Elvington, on the outskirts of York, the company has moved its administration, sales and management staff to its 21-acre warehouse and workshop site, seven miles away in Seaton Ross, East Riding of Yorkshire.

Managing director Paul Dawson commented: “This is a key investment for the company, as the provision of ever more consistent, high quality products and services is reliant on well-co-ordinated, focused attention to detail, requiring joined up thinking and actions, across all departments. By putting head office right where we process, blend and dispatch all our products, brings all staff much closer together. In addition to which, the site is centrally located within the area where we grow all our turf.

“We have also worked hard on the design of the new building to ensure it provides an improved working environment and after the first few weeks I could not be happier with the feedback I have received. I firmly believe this will be good news for customers as after over 40 years in Elvington, we are now focused on the next 40 years, delivering the right products for today and of course innovating for tomorrow in a rapidly changing environment.”

The company are planning an official opening ceremony in Spring 2018 after landscaping works have been completed.
