Wholly owned and debt free
One of our key strengths is our family and friendly approach. We are not a floated company beholden to shareholders. We have what is a fairly flat management structure which is designed to empower many levels in our team as far as possible. We enjoy to have a more personal relationship with our trade accounts and with our suppliers. This lets us all support and work with each other.
We are also debt free: we own our warehouse, the racking, the stock in it. Increasing debt is one of the causes of the financial crisis and whilst we do not view it as a bad thing in the short term, long term business debt is to be avoided.
