Rock Fall walking on cloud nine

Bondholder Rock Fall UK has scooped top prize at the Midlands Family Business Awards.

This is the first time in 18 years of providing safety footwear that the company has won an award, and we are delighted. This is a fitting tribute to the hard work of all our staff. It was awesome when the results were announced, given the high standard of entries.
