Nemo Evolve Member Boards Direct, which specialises in visual display products, including whiteboards and notice boards, boosted sales by 12 per cent in 2018, crediting its commitment to customer service and its wide product range.

Giving back to the community

Boards Direct’s success has enabled it to support local young people by providing apprenticeship opportunities. Two apprentices have gained permanent positions within finance and customer service earlier this year.

Paul Pinder (pictured), Chairman at Boards Direct said, “despite uncertainty in the British economy due to the negotiations in Europe, we are a company that is continuing to grow.

Quality and range

“Boards Direct achieved a 12 per cent increase in sales in 2018 and that is due to the quality and range of products that we offer, with 3,000 products now available on our website.

“We continue to develop new lines and introduce new products as trends evolve. This year we extended our Mobiglass collection with Mobiglass Plus. An exclusive range of mobile glass writing boards that are designed and manufactured here in Nottingham. Our continued growth is also helping to support local businesses.

“It has given us the opportunity to provide young people, who want an alternative to university, with experience and training across the whole of our business combined with real job opportunities.

An industry leader

“Since the company was founded eight years ago, we have established ourselves as leaders due to our commitment to customer service and the product guidance that we offer. We believe this ethos will support our continued growth as we look towards our 10th birthday.”

Boards Direct counts Nottingham Trent University, Fortnum and Mason, Lloyds and Barclays Bank among its clientele, which also includes SMEs and educational establishments across the UK.
