We supply products and services to a wide range of customers including schools, local authorities, charities, emergency services, the public sector, and other businesses such as nurseries and care homes.

We're 100% publicly owned, by our 13 member authorities, which means the profits we make are returned to our public sector customers, and we are committed and open about safety, as well as investing in our own people.
