This year sees Futures Supplies & Support Services Ltd celebrating its 20th anniversary in the cleaning industry.
Futures Supplies was set up in 1995 by entrepreneur Mandie Kemp, who has been responsible for the company’s growth and continued expansion over the past two decades.
The company which is proactive in its approach to the environment and committed to Corporate Social Responsibility, is now well established and respected within its sector and is recognised as a major player in distributing washroom, cleaning, janitorial and associated products.
Commenting on the business reaching its 20 year milestone, Kemp, founder and chief executive of Futures Supplies, said:
“Twenty years marks a significant milestone for Futures Supplies. We began as a small business working from home with a garage full of toilet rolls and cleaning supplies delivering door to door. We have now grown to become an award winning company with a turnover in excess of £3.5 million. Working with customers in London and on a national basis we are honoured to be able to celebrate this occasion with many of the people who have shared our journey and contributed to make the company the success it is today.”
The award winning business still supplies its very first customer, David McLeod, MD of Cresswell Office Services Ltd who said:
“I am delighted for Mandie and the highly trained and motivated team at Futures Supplies. Congratulations to them all on this fantastic achievement which has been accomplished through pure dedication and recognising the need to be a forward thinking company in a competitive market place. Always ahead of the game in innovation, strategies and with a ‘can do’ approach, the team are a pleasure to work with.”
In 2006, Kemp was named ‘Surrey Business Person of the Year’ at the Surrey Business Awards and has since led the company to win a host of numerous other accolades, including The South London Business Customer Service Award, the Green Apple Award and the Best Commitment to CSR Award.
Futures Supplies was one of the first companies in the industry to offer an online shopping website, to become Carbon Neutral and have an electric van on its fleet. With the company’s continued inward investment it now has its own premises in South London and a large fleet of vehicles, with a young vibrant team headed up by managing director, Marc Kemp. He commented:
“We are thankful to our many customers and partners for their loyalty over the past twenty years. Our industry has evolved and developed significantly, there has been substantial growth and competition is always fierce. Throughout these changes and with difficult economic conditions, we have always remained focused on collaborating to deliver added value, quality products and an exceptional first class service. We never forget the customer comes first, and positioned for long-term success are excited to have such a young, dynamic and forward thinking team to lead the company into the future.”
