Steve Rawlins, CEO, Anglia puts its success down to its core business model, which hasn’t changed over Anglia’s history. He said: “We have always been privately owned, retained a UK warehouse and maintained one of the highest levels of inventory in the business. Exceptional service and technical support set Anglia apart, providing the basis for stable and strong customer relationships.”
He continued: “With no outside investors, we have more freedom to make long term decisions, and to partner with our customers to create success for them – which is also success for us. We have outgrown the market for the last ten years and are confident that we can maintain that growth to reach £100 million by the time we’re 50.”
