The Teesside-based workwear clothing and accessories supply company has completed its 100,000th order. M.I. Supplies first began as a small company that sold only a handful of units a week from the Teesside Industrial Estate in Thornaby. The company first launched in 2005 and since then has expanded, with it recently reaching this new landmark figure.
The company is now able to process 25,000 orders, consisting of well over 600,000 individual products each year. This expansion is brilliant for the workwear supplier. On top of this new milestone reached, the company has also been benefiting from a 240% surge in online sales which have come as the result of M.I. Supplies launching their new website.
This good news for the company has come as a result of hard work and expansion over the course of 12 years. However, the company is now processing a significantly larger amount of orders than before, which means that this number of transactions is expected to increase quickly. After the launch of their new website the company saw a surge in sales from £16,000 a month to over £55,000 a month which is a reflection of the quality of service and the products supplied by the company. The target for the company is to eventually reach £2 million a year in online sales, which would be a truly astonishing growth for the company.
M.I. Supplies have managed to keep performing well even in these more uncertain times, and the business has still been able to stick to their growth plans. The plan for the company is to expand so that they are able to hit the £2 million in sales at some point next year. The company hope that by the end of their financial year in November, they will have made £600,000 in online sales.
In comparison, competitors are reducing their staff levels and closing local site, so it is great news for M.I. Supplies that they continue to thrive.
