Hall-Fast Scoops African Order Worth £50k

Embroidered workwear from Hall-FastDNCC member Hall-Fast Industrial Supplies has secured an order from a customer in Africa worth more than £50,000 to supply 3,500 work jackets and trousers.

The jackets will be embroidered with the company’s logos and all of the items will be individually packed to the customer’s specific requirements.

Commenting on the order, Hall-Fast Managing Director Malcolm Hall said: "This is the second such order within the last 12 months from this customer and it is a testament to our ability to supply any of our 100,000 plus products anywhere in the world. We have already supplied into 76 countries and with open enquiries from other regions our presence in new overseas markets is sure to grow within the coming months."

In addition to supplying local trade customers, Mansfield based Hall-Fast, which has been crowned Midlands Exporter of the Year for the past two years, now offers its full range, which includes specialist fasteners, workwear, tools, abrasives and access and handling equipment, to the export markets. It started exporting in 2009.

Hall-Fast is currently implementing a strategy to develop a number of fully multilingual websites over the next 12 months as part of the company’s strategy to expand its sales further overseas.

Mr Hall also believes that investment in the growth of the export business has also helped the firm have a positive impact on the local community. He said: "Our success in international markets has enabled us to employ local people and winning awards also helps to raise our profile which in turn helps to raise awareness of the local charity and fundraising events that we support."
