25th business anniversary (2)Yesterday we celebrated the company’s 25th Anniversary! In May 1991, Ken and Wendy Miller started the company with a view to providing industrial supplies to companies across the UK. The company’s very first office was… their living room. Little did they know at that time how much the company would grow.

Over time, they have achieved something not many companies can achieve nowadays when most startups only make it through to their 2nd anniversary. Ken and Wendy’s hard work and determination has been a true inspiration to Steve, who has transformed the business from a catalogue organisation to a successful eCommerce company. The Workplace Depot is now one of the UK’s largest industrial and Commerce companies, sourcing products from over 120 suppliers worldwide.

The Miller family has created and transformed a company that is now employing over 20 staff and winning retail awards year after year, making The Workplace Depot a great place to work for.

About Last Night

Last night, Steve has organised a surprise party to celebrate the company’s 25th business anniversary at The Bridge and Bayleaf. We went there straight after work and had a delicious Indian meal, celebrating Ken, Wendy and Steve’s business achievements. The atmosphere was great and the speeches even more so.

We just want to thank every single one of the Miller family for their hard work, commitment to the business and of course, for looking after their staff the way they do. Thank you for last night, congratulations on the massive achievement and good luck to all three of you for the next 25 years!
