Pioneering farming enterprise, HL Hall & Sons, was founded by Hugh Lanion Hall in 1890. From the beginning, Halls has been a company in tireless evolution; confronted by changing markets and business challenges, the company developed and grew. Although rooted in fresh produce, the group continues to expand and progress as a diversified corporation. Property development and new investments, primarily in the fields of financial services and pharmaceutical products, carry HL Hall & Sons into the millennium and beyond.

Firmly planted, yes. Looking back, no. HL Hall & Sons takes  its responsibility to create value for both current stakeholders and future generations seriously and our bottom line is to focus on people, place and prosperity.  HL Hall & Sons has been making a difference both to the Lowveld and the communities in which we operate for over 125 years.

HL Hall & Sons Properties

In the 1980’s, HL Hall & Sons effected the company’s largest transformation in 90 years by diversifying into property development. The foundations of Halls Properties are firmly set in the ethos established by HL Hall and sustained through four generations – land is a valuable, non-renewable resource to be managed with careful planning and long-range vision for the benefit of the generations to follow.

These strong, traditional values don’t hold us back from proactively changing the property development landscape in Mbombela. Industrial, commercial and residential development is our business and visionary landmark development is how we do it.

Collaboration with specialist experienced partners is a cornerstone of Halls Properties’ business philosophy. Partnership provides increased opportunities for others to participate in the successful Riverside Park development; it also strengthens the project development team, if and when required. Teamwork and unity is strength.
