Punchline Talks! The B!G Interview with Simon Ford, CEO of Allstones Group

The Allstone Group started in quarrying and slowly built up a waste management company alongside selling aggregates to the trade and public.

They also deal in property development, buying and selling land and getting planning permission.

The business now achieves around £20m turnover and employs over 120 staff and is growing all the time. Simon explains in the video interview how he has grown the family business, the mistakes made along the way and how he has had to adapt to survive.

He covers the impact Covid has had on the business - with at one point more than 5,000 Speedy Skips booked out, such has been the demand for DIY and the building trade.

There is a lot to learn from one of Gloucestershire's well known and respected business leaders. Mark Owen, www.punchline-gloucester.com editor asks the questions and gets the low down on the company and the person.
