When you’re competing to be the best, we believe in the power of partnerships.


Having built trusted relationships over 30 years, up and down our supply chain, we’re able to source unique rates, terms, and agreements with the best providers of workplace supplies. Being able to get our hands on the latest developments also means that we’re quick to adopt competitive advantages, passing them onto you before your market catches up.

And by working with you in the same way, we can feed your experiences back to the providers to improve their products and services. It’s this partnership approach which results in continual added value, for every customer and supplier we work with.

Our in-house testing lab at Commercial, which we fondly call Area 51, is where we experiment with combinations and customisation for our clients. We never recommend or supply anything before we’ve put it through its paces and confirmed that it’s the best solution available.

Don’t just take
our word for it…

Commercial deliver more than workplace supplies. We are fortunate to work with some amazing partners. Here are some examples of great things we hear every day.

The Commercial team's expertise empowered a leading retailer to substantially decrease scope 3 emissions in their to-store deliveries at Pets at Home. Leveraging specialised software, Commercial streamlined the delivery process across their entire UK store network, eliminating the practise of making multiple deliveries to a single store each week. This transition to a single bi-weekly delivery not only resulted in significant carbon savings but also minimised disruption to our stores and in-store staff.


Better partnerships, better prices.

Finding the right price structure to match your needs is critical. We offer fixed, cost-plus, open-book, and discount pricing – to make sure that you can get the best solutions for your workplace essentials and office supplies, in a way that suits your needs.

Don’t just take
our word for it…

Commercial deliver. We are fortunate to work with some amazing partners. Here are some examples of great things we hear every day.

Commercial has revolutionised the stock reporting process for a leading retailer at Pets at Home, offering complete transparency on spending, down to the store and individual item levels. The retailer receives a comprehensive monthly dashboard that itemises data, highlighting areas where adjustments should and can be made. Additionally, Commercial conducts a thorough quarterly business review, focusing on high-spending items and exploring innovative alternatives that can lead to additional cost savings.
It was fascinating to hear Commercial co-founder Simone Hindmarch speak so inspiringly about their sustainability work to help mark Net Zero week at Womble Bond Dickinson. Simone took our delegates through the fantastic Social Impact Report, detailing the work Commercial have done since 2006 and their exciting plans for the future too. She discussed how partnerships with EcoVadis and Loop have helped support them with their Scope 1, 2 and 3 emissions. Our colleagues were able to come away from the session with some inspiration and really useful insights which were of great benefit as we work towards our own Net Zero target.
Commercial have operated with an open-book pricing policy to ensure that Currys are always receiving the best possible value across all our 150 different product lines. Offering full transparency on all items means that Currys are able to benefit from the cost savings, improvements or mitigations that Commercial are continuously seeking to make. This open-book policy gives us assurance that Commercial are always seeking the best possible prices and let to a cost saving of £140,000 in 2022.
Commercial were able to help Bellway make significant carbon emission reductions by completing a thorough analysis and consolidation of our deliveries. They were keen advocates of our Better with Bellway initiative and were able to analyse our deliveries across 25 divisions and 121 UK locations and implement a plan to cut journeys. By setting delivery days to Tuesday, they were able to consolidate the routes and journeys making annual savings of more than 2,000kgs of CO2 and in excess of £3,500
The Tesco procurement team have been delighted with the way Commercial share our desire to entrench sustainability into our supply chain – we really are kindred spirits. Our ethical and sustainability policies are of paramount importance to our reputation and the Commercial team reviewed and approved all products in a short timeframe. Commercial are already committed to the ETI base code and are working on achieving EcoVadis accreditation for all suppliers on the Tesco account.
The new Walsall Housing Group office is a fantastic, fresh and modern workplace thanks to the wonderful work of the Commercial interiors team. They created a steering group to work alongside us to understand our demands and held regular meetings during the design process to keep us informed of the progress. Our desire was for a more collaborative space, with meeting booths and one-to-one seating, rather than traditional desks – and they delivered a fantastic final fit-out over the full four-floor building.
Each year, Commercial supplies accessory packs to graduate trainees at a leading accountancy firm, which are then picked, packed, and delivered to their home addresses by the Commercial Foundation. This not only guarantees that every new employee has the necessary equipment to be productive from their first day but also allows their IT team to focus on other responsibilities. Collaborating with the Commercial Foundation generates substantial social value returns on investment for the firm and contributes to improving the lives of the Foundation's volunteers.
Wollens have enjoyed a long-standing and fruitful partnership with Commercial because they are always introducing innovations and improvements to our IT environment. As the threat of cyber-attacks increases it was vital that we strengthened our capabilities for dealing with a ransomware attack with a cloud-based backup solution. Our solution means data cannot be altered or deleted, giving us a crucial way of recovering data to minimise any potential downtime and financial losses
Working with Commercial for our branded materials has proved to be effective and collaborative. The team is efficient and they listen to requests for improvements. Commercial has made branded goods simple.
As E-commerce in retail continues to grow, Commercial’s stock-management and fulfilment expertise has allowed a leading UK retailer to free huge amounts of warehouse space. Commercial took on the stocking of our employee uniform, transferring to a new supplier with the management of the supply being consolidated into their existing supply accounts. Not only did this free vital space in their distribution centre, the consolidated supply of all GNFR delivered significant delivery cost savings.
