Published:  25 July, 2011

NEWCASTLE UPON TYNE: JT Dove, a leading independent builders' merchant in North East England, has been appointed as a key stockist of topsoil, bark mulch and play chip by Hallstone, a sister company to Rolawn. 

With branches at Newburn, Ashington, Berwick, Birtley, Bishop Auckland, Carlisle, Hawick, Hexham, Marske, Stockton and South Shields, "we take our commitment to the landscaping sector seriously," said Martin Jakolins, general manager.

The merchant insisted on consistent, sustainable products that meet its customer expectations and it also wanted proactive supplier support. It recently partnered with Acheson &Glover to create a hard landscaping display area for a customer.

"We are pleased with the progress we have made since we agreed to stock Hallstone products. They work hard to support us with a number of initiatives already in place and we look forward to developing the relationship going forward."
