After nearly 15 years of existence, it is a time to reflect on who we are and what we have contributed to society. Charity has from day one played an important part in our evolvement and our continued success has allowed us to be more generous and increase the number of charities we support.
It gives us great fulfillment as a business to be able to help those less fortunate than ourselves as well as charities which are focused on finding solutions to pressing medical problems.

Where did the business start?
The business started out of a small office in the Coda Centre in Fulham in June 2004 before a warehouse with offices was found in Wimbledon in September of the same year. At the same time a sales and marketing office was started in Cape Town, South Africa, to act as the commercial arm of the business and Guy Florin spent a lot of time to and fro between the various offices.
Initially, the business got off the ground with a contract to supply 65 bottled coolers to an institution previously supplied by
