Fenn 1875 supports companies in creating social change by operating in a financially sustainable and environmentally conscious way.
Through consolidating your business needs to a single source your business benefits from economies of scale, and the environment benefits from the ethical products we source, from their packaging to delivery and recycling. We reduce your total costs with no negative effect on service, quality – or our world!
We always aim to:
We provide a simple single-source purchasing solution which not only makes life easier, but quite simply saves your business time and money while helping you to meet both regulatory and responsible business practices.
Through listening to them and our people, we have created a sustainable business which makes a positive difference to our suppliers, our customers and our world. Our suppliers are chosen not just for their price competitiveness, but also based on their business practices including their ethical business policies, health and safety compliance, and ability to source environmentally responsible products.
We have worked hard to achieve internationally recognised standards ISO 9001 (quality) and ISO 14001 (environment) SA8000 (working conditions) – and we ensure our suppliers adhere to these guidelines and operational standards too.
By helping you to make ethical buying decisions together we can make a positive difference.
"As a world leading manufacturer, we take our environmental responsibilities very seriously. Our business partnership with Fenn 1875 has delivered a sustainable, cost-effective solution. This was achieved by Fenns ... delivering and implementing a tailored solution quickly and efficiently. Fenns are an integral part of our supply chain."

In the fast moving world of Fenns, we’ve had a strong start to the year and we’re making great progress towards our growth and sustainability goals. From team growth to service expansions, it’s all happening! With lots of exciting projects going on in the business, we’d like to share some of the most recent updates.
We’ve just launched our brand new furniture website that enables you to purchase equipment for your workspace online. With a range of suppliers and new lines set to be added, the site offers everything from essentials to ergonomically designed desks and chairs. Check back regularly to see special offers and take inspiration on cool ideas for your workspace.
This year we’ve invested heavily into enhancing our categories and in providing exceptional service to our customers. Furniture and workspace fitouts is a growing area of ours and we’re happy to welcome Matt Allaby into the team as our Head of Furniture. Chelsea Spencer joins us as our Head of Marketing to help with our digital customer journey and marketing strategy.
To support further growth we have recruited Ellie Malbon as our accounts apprentice and have created new opportunities within our customer services and purchasing team. We’re also looking to recruit more roles to help with our growth objectives so have a look at our careers page.
We have a range of CSR initiatives and these all lead to our ‘business for good’ ethos. We’re working towards becoming carbon neutral by 2027 and we’re well on the way to achieving this. Our fleet is being replaced by electric vehicles when the opportunity for new leases arise. The packaging in our warehouse was also under review and we have chosen a more sustainable box for distributing goods.
The partnership with The Woodland Trust ensures we’re able to offset any carbon that can not be reduced. Over the last year, together we have achieved the following:
Investing into growing the skill set of our team enables us to evolve our business offering and keep innovating. Our purchasing team is undertaking a CIPs qualification to ensure we’re using best practice methods. Other areas of the business are benefiting from training too by CIPD and apprenticeships.
To facilitate the next stage of our growth, we purchased a new office to better suit our team’s needs. The new space has LED lighting and solar panels to move us further towards our carbon neutral goals. Our working showroom will return with a range of different suppliers for our customers to see in action when they visit us.
