Since we opened our doors in 2008, we have experienced substantial levels of growth to become a leading magnet supplier in the UK and across Europe, with over 20,000,000 magnets in stock at any one time. Our modern e-commerce approach has seen us become a pioneering company at the forefront of magnetic technology, shipping over 10,000,000 units in 2018 alone. Progress has accelerated since the impressive multi-million management buyout by Matthew Ellis-Mather (28) in March 2016, who is leading the business into previously untapped sectors of the industry whilst expanding on our current offering.
Managing Director Matthew Ellis-Mather spoke of his delight at the three nominations: “We are thrilled to be shortlisted in three categories this year. To be recognised for our key principles of a commitment to providing a fantastic e-commerce experience paired with customer centric principles which has allowed to be where we are today, is fantastic.”
