Futures Supplies was set up in 1995 by entrepreneur Mandie Kemp and in the last two decades, Mandie has established the company as a pioneer, innovator and leader within the cleaning industry. The company is well respected and a major player in distributing washroom, cleaning and janitorial products. Remaining independent, the family run business whose ethos is deliver service, quality, value, reliability, with environmental consideration through technology and innovation, never forgets the customer always comes first.
More than 300 companies attended the Croydon Business Excellence Awards Gala Dinner black tie event, organised by White Label, to hear the best of the best announced. Held at Fairfield Halls and beating off stiff competition with a business community of more than 13,000 in Croydon, Futures Supplies was delighted to be awarded the highly desired accolade of ‘Best SME Business’. The award sets out to recognise and acknowledge the ongoing role that all SME businesses play in growing and sustaining the economy.
Award winning Futures Supplies celebrating its twentieth anniversary this year, was crowned the winner for demonstrating pro-active leadership and management, a commitment to the local community and green initiatives, a strong training and development programme, strong financial growth performance results, clear, concise and impactful plan for sustained growth, as well as innovation and differentiation within the business.
Councillor Toni Letts, of category sponsors Croydon Council, said: “Operating as an ISO and carbon neutral business Futures Supplies’ staff training and development programme is exemplary, as is its policy to offer opportunities to disadvantaged young people and commitment to become a ‘Living Wage Employer’.
“The company’s support of local as well as national charities is longstanding – a real example of giving back to the local community. Behind this family business lies a genuine success story of a women entrepreneur who has combated a challenging upbringing and presents a tremendous role model and inspiration to women and indeed all local entrepreneurs. She is really inspirational.”
Mandie Kemp, chief executive and founder of Future Supplies & Support Services, said “I wasn’t expecting it all. I’m absolutely overwhelmed and it’s great to have everyone here tonight – the dedicated young team who are equally responsible for our success, including my daughter and son who are so heavily involved in leading the business leading into the future.”
