Revolutionizing the commercial vehicle industry with their bold vision, Oliver Lewis and Paul Ricketts of Hawkstone Commercials soar to success, embodying the spirit of entrepreneurship and innovation.

Oliver Lewis and Paul Ricketts were fed up with working for other people. They had a vision to build their own successful commercial vehicle supply company and in 2022, they launched Hawkstone Commercials. In just one short year, Hawkstone Commercials has already established itself as one of the fastest growing new commercial vehicles suppliers in the UK, supplying all makes and models.

Lewis and Ricketts’ vision, experience and industry contacts have been instrumental to the early success and growth of Hawkstone Commercials. Their ambitious business plan helped the company win the ‘Most Trusted Commercial Vehicle Supplier’ award at the 2023 UK Enterprise Awards, a remarkable achievement for such a new business.

The entrepreneurial duo now have their sights set on further developing their sister-company, Hawkstone Motor Finance, which provides competitive funding solutions to businesses and consumers looking to acquire new vehicles. They also plan to add more members to their growing sales team at Hawkstone Commercials.

With their entrepreneurial spirit and vision, Lewis and Ricketts have built Hawkstone Commercials into an award-winning business in just one year. They are finalists at the 2023 Great British Entrepreneur Awards, known as “The Grammys of Entrepreneurship”. The awards take place in November at London’s Grosvenor House.
