Turf supplier Rolawn added premium quality topsoil in a bulk bag to its range approximately 15 years ago; the business is now celebrating the sale of its one millionth bag.
Rolawn’s range has evolved to include task specific topsoil mixes for turf laying, growing of vegetables and fruit, and for planting schemes in beds and borders, with added benefits such as increased fertility levels and water retentive polymers. This year sales of bulk bags of bark have been particularly strong, helping achieve the significant milestone ahead of schedule.
The Travis Perkins branch in Peterborough were the lucky recipients of the ‘golden bag’. Branch manager Paul Marsh commented: “We are really pleased to be the customer who bought the millionth bag, the product and service from Rolawn is always good, and the product sells itself. What more could you ask for?”
Rolawn sales and marketing director Jonathan Hill commented: “We are very proud of this achievement. The sales numbers prove the high level of demand for Rolawn premium quality topsoils and barks – which are running at a 99.6% service and product success rate in this financial year. The Peterborough branch of TP deserve this recognition with great sales support of our products over the last few years. Paul and his team represent us in the market place fantastically well, the 50% discount on the stock order will also give them a margin boost. We couldn’t be happier.”
