Professional joinery and hardware solutions firm Formed celebrated 50 years in business in September. Launched in 1971 with 'a customer centric approach at its heart', the company says it has been bringing its own innovative products to market since 2004, including the Slyder drawer system. It has also forged exclusive partnerships with manufacturers to the extent that the company had to relocate to a bigger head office and distribution facility in Lincoln.
To further support customers, the company says it has expanded the team in key areas of the business. The sales team has grown so customers in the South-East and South Wales now have a dedicated point of contact, and plans are in place to further grow the account management team.
Terry Haughton, sales director, commented: "The past 50 years have brought many exciting challenges – we couldn't have done it without the team. It's our values that drive the team daily that have led us to where we are now. We focus on being agile in an ever-changing marketplace and reacting to market and customer needs. All of these key values have been part of our ethos from the start and driven us to where we are today."
