Kerridge Commercial Systems (KCS) traces its roots back to 1976 and the business states that it is “proud to celebrate 40 years of providing innovative computer software solutions to the distribution sector.”
Ian Bendelow, Chief Executive Officer, said: “Although computer technology has progressed dramatically over the past 40 years and business needs have changed considerably, we have remained true to our company’s ethos. Focusing on the needs of our customers, we deliver quality solutions to address their business needs and technical innovation that adds real value to their bottom line.
“For our customers we bring consistency, stability, longevity and innovation. We are particularly proud to have established many long-term relationships and to have seen our customers develop and prosper. Those long term relationships, many of whom have been with us for 10, 20 and more than 30 years, really make a difference,” Ian continued.
“Driven by entrepreneurial opportunities our customers are constantly innovating and it’s been our job to support those opportunities and also bring technology innovation. It is amazing to reflect on how 40 years of supporting distributors/wholesales and merchants have evolved.”
KCS employs 400 staff and, in addition to UK operations in Hungerford, Bourne End and Newcastle, the company also has major facilities serving customers in Ireland, Netherlands and South Africa. In 2015, the business expanded into North America opening offices in North Carolina. The KCS Group now has around 800 customers, serving 6,000 locations and 80,000+ users in 18 countries.
