Celebrating 20 years of excellence

Celebrating 20 years of excellence

This year is Greenmill’s 20th Anniversary. When we started the company in 2001, we had a pretty clear vision for Greenmill, and that original vision is still as strong and relevant in 2021...

...In Stock, On Site, On Time.

From the beginning we wanted to build a business that put customers at its centre. But first we had to build new doors for the old garage we were based in. As cosy as that garage was (especially with new doors), we always had ambitious plans for growth.

The opening of our first small trade counter in 2001 (with the added luxury of actual warehouse space), was swiftly followed by a succession of moves to larger premises, as Greenmill continued to expand. Like all businesses, our journey hasn’t been a completely smooth one. Inevitably, there have been a few bumps along the way, and maybe we’ve taken the odd wrong turn here and there (we’ll leave you to guess which ones).

However, after 20 years of planned and sustainable growth, Greenmill is now one of the UK’s leading suppliers of AC, Ventilation and Heat Pump install materials. Our team has achieved this by focusing on what’s important, giving Greenmill customers what they want, when they want it. In fact, this approach is so central to our business that it even has its own catchy name “focustomer” (which admittedly sounded a lot catchier in the original brainstorm).

None of us can predict what will happen over next few years (especially given the past 15 months, which have been extremely tough for everyone). But you can be sure that we will continue to challenge ourselves, build our customer experience and always strive for the vision we established 20 years ago. In Stock, On Site, On Time.
