Our story

Family values are at the heart of Commercial.

The business was founded in 1991 by brother and sister Arthur Hindmarch and Simone Hindmarch, with Arthur’s long-standing university friend Alastair de Q Adams. We specialised in business stationery and operated from a one-room office.  

Since then, we’ve built a £60m organisation with expert-led divisions offering everything to help businesses run smoothly. From pens, paper and printed assets to office technologies and interior design. And from IT infrastructure services to specialist solutions such as managed document services. If your office needs it, we can do it.

The energy and enthusiasm of Arthur, Simone and Alastair is a potent mix that gets better with age. Responsible business with a continual improvement ethos has been core to Commercial’s culture since the 90s. Over the past decade, this has matured into a more purposeful and progressive approach that embraces environmental and social responsibility.
