We invest in our purchasing team, providing training directly from mills as well as external specialists. This ensures our team is fully aware of the sourcing, certification, composition and production process that can impact cost and material application. Our team also looks for the best products that meet the combined criteria of quality, ethical sourcing and price. As a result, our customers trust us to provide products that meet their needs, at a competitive price that does not compromise on quality.
