Twenty years of working with Central Source

Bott are delighted to announce that, in February, we will have been working with Midlands based company Central Source for twenty years.

In 1993 the Internet wasn't much more than a twinkle in Tim Berners-Lee's eye and Bill Clinton had just become the third youngest President in history. It was also the year that Schindler's List won an Oscar for ‘best picture’ and Nelson Mandela won his Nobel Peace Prize.

However, we remember ‘93 as the year we first met a young Ken Miller who enthusiastically suggested that we could be a supplier for his growing industrial supplies business.

In an age where business partnerships are frequently short-lived, transient, and seemingly disposable, we are incredibly pleased to be celebrating a thriving relationship spanning two decades.

Ken Miller, Managing Director of Central Source, commented; “Bott are our longest standing supplier – in fact they are our number one supplier too! In the twenty years that I have known them they have been a pleasure to work with and they have a fantastic reputation for quality and service.”

Central Source sell Bott products such as workshop and warehouse cabinets, drawers, benches, and seating via their industrial catalogue and through their new website,

We also have over 25 pages of our products featured in the catalogue (more than any other Central Source supplier) whilst on the website there are over 200 different items available.

Miller continued, saying “as well as a superb range of products, Bott provide a minimum of a three year guarantee on everything. It is also great to work with a company that manufactures most of its products in the UK; customers often ask us where things are made.”

On their website, Central Source highlights those products manufactured in the UK by displaying a Union Jack flag.

Michelle Day, who heads up the Sales Team at Central Source, has many years’ experience working with Bott said; “They are a great supplier! I've never had quality issues with them and I would happily recommend their products for any company carrying out a warehouse or workshop installation”.

Many of Bott’s products, such as the Engineers Workbench, are featured on the website along with a short and informative video that showcases the unique features of each item.

We look forwards to continuing our partnership with Central Source and The Workplace Depot and hope to be raising a glass of bubbly in another twenty years’ time.
