National Business. Local Ethics

Welcome to Bates

Our founder George Henry Bates, began trading from a small typewriter engineering 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, Stoke on Trent, Bridgend, Wrexham.

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 and reliability are paramount, and that the only way to achieve the best possible service for our customers is to listen. You will find our approach refreshingly different.
