  • Hall-Fast New Website Now Live!

    We are really pleased to announce that our new website is now live!

    After months of issues with our old website we decided to move developers and invest in a new website that would help us to take Hall-Fast to the next level.

    We have invested heavily in this new website to give our customers the best possible user experience. It is fully responsive when viewed on mobile devices, it has an advanced search feature and is a lot quicker than our old website, the website is also built in Magento which will give us the ability to quickly and easily develop our site as we add new ranges, whilst not tying us to one developer.

    With a website and a range as large as ours there will inevitably be some teething problems, with some prices missing and possibly links broken. Now that the website is live we will be undertaking significant checks and tests over the next few weeks. If you do experience any issues please do email sales@hall-fast.com or call (01623) 645 645.

    Thanks a lot for your patience in this initial launch period

    The third annual Hall-Fast Charity Ball will take place on Friday 29 May 2015 at the John Fretwell Complex near Mansfield.

    Multi-award winning industrial supplies firm Hall-Fast has teamed up with the Derbyshire, Nottinghamshire and Leicestershire Chamber of Commerce to deliver the event, which will feature all of the glitz and glamour of the past two years, with a bit of extra sparkle thrown in.

    Mansfield’s Fountaindale SEN School, which helps youngsters aged three to 19 years with physical and sensory needs, will again be a beneficiary of Hall-Fast’s fundraising efforts over the next 12 months. Next year’s event will also raise money for Headway UK - the brain injury association, which works to improve life after brain injury. The Nottingham-based charity has a network of more than 100 groups and branches across the UK

    Hall-Fast intends to raise more than £30,000 over the next 12 months and have joined forces with former Nottingham Rugby legend David Jackson to achieve this, with the final amount being split 50/50 between the two charities.

    It is hoped that half of this figure will come from the Hall-Fast Charity Ball, with the other half being raised from a gruelling physical challenge in April 2015 and other charity events that are planned, including charity curry nights and events with Hall-Fast’s North Nottinghamshire community partners, Nottingham Rugby and ice hockey club the Sheffield Steelers.

    Hall-Fast owner Malk Hall said: ‘’I’m really pleased that the events team at our Chamber of Commerce is organising next year’s Hall-Fast Charity Ball. They have a wealth of experience of organising events and with an ever-growing membership of 3,800 firms, the awareness of both charities will be raised further afield.

    “We also hope that our fellow Chamber members from across the three counties will purchase tickets or sponsor what is now widely-recognised as North Nottinghamshire’s most prestigious annual event.’’
