The Thompson family have been in business since the 1930s, putting three generations of experience behind the Peter Thompson Group Ltd which was formed in 1982. This means that our customers can tap into our unparalleled wealth of personal knowledge and expertise in sourcing, consistently, the right product at the right price for our needs.
This experience and continuity of product knowledge gives us the very special ability to balance customers’ expectations against suppliers’ constraints and so provide imaginative solutions to sometimes exacting product requirements. It also enables us to identify and predict new market trends.
We use this knowledge to ensure the continued success of our own products but also to impress our customers with the popularity of theirs. This, combined with our exacting customer service standards explains why we are still doing business today with some of the companies we were serving more than 60 years ago.
