QED Celebrating 25 Years in Business

QED Stand: 5/L125

Co-founders Ian Smith and David Arrowsmith said:

”This is an incredible milestone for any company. The business has achieved this success through the hard work, passion, and dedication of our team members and loyal customers.

In 2020, we made the decision to retire and hand over the reins to Matt Philp who has continued to strengthen existing relationships and make improvements on our strict distribution procedures and attention to detail; and our culture of customer service that exists throughout the entire company.

We have dedicated ourselves to 25 years of introducing security products and business process improvements and efficiencies to provide our customers with the highest quality solutions and services.”

Matt Philp, Managing Director, said:

”It has been a pleasure to work alongside such great guys over the last couple of decades they have truly built a great business and we will continue to grow on the strong foundations they have created.

Throughout 2022, we have been looking back at where we started, what we have achieved, and what our plans are for the future. In the summer, we celebrated by inviting all our employees to a fantastic day out to celebrate this incredible milestone.  We believe a team that celebrates together stays together and everyone enjoyed the celebrations with the highlight being clay pigeon shooting!

It’s been a tough few years for everyone and we are here to help in our small way, and we look forward to celebrating the next 25 years.”
