MAXIMISING FULL POTENTIAL

NEWEY ROUNDSTONE STEPS INTO THE ELLEPOT SYSTEM

Alex Newey, Managing Director - Newey Roundstone

Newey Roundstone is one of UK’s largest propagators and producers of protected ornamental plants.
For more than thirty years they have grown, invested, innovated and distributed the highest quality plants to retailers and professional growers. Located in West Sussex the production facilities also benefit from the natural light levels specific to this area.

Challenge

When Newey took over Roundstone Nurseries back in 2015 they were very clear that their objective was to maximise the full potential of the business this including a significant investment strategy.

At Newey production relied heavily on buying in glue plugs for propagation which didn't meets the stringent demands that Newey Roundstone places on environmental sustainability and care.

SOLUTION

An important factor in Newey’s choice is that the Ellepot system is an environmental friendly and sustainable propagation system. 
With the new fully automatic Ellepot machinery, Newey now has production on site, meaning full control of all steps of the propagation. This has helped ensuring higher flexibility and reliability, without any compromise on capacity or quality of the finished plant.

Benefits

With Ellepot, production costs have been lowered significantly due to better and smarter handling & logistics.
