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 email@example.com or call (01623) 645 645.
Thanks a lot for your patience in this initial launch period
