National Business. Local Ethics
Welcome to Bates
Our founder, George Henry Bates , began trading from a small typewriter shop in the heart of London in the 1930's. From this humble beginning our business has grown into a major national supplier of business productivity supplies and services, delivering to clients across the UK from centres in Rochester, Crayford, Crewe, Wrexham, Chippenham and Halifax.
While Bates has grown as a company, there are some things that we are careful not to change. We remain independent, providing the same friendly service and hands-on approach that has always set us apart.
We understand that no two companies are the same, that trust reliability are paramount, and that the only way to achieve the best possible service for our customers is to listen to them. You will find our approach refreshingly different.
Thank you for this oppurtunity to introduce our services and please contact us if you require further information or would like to arrange an informal meeting to discuss your requirements.
