Sustainability is a choice.
Change Starts at Source.
Here at Source, we embrace sustainability from both angles:
1. Sourcing and promoting sustainable products
2. Choosing environmentally friendly ways to operate our business
From elevating our most sustainable suppliers to implementing energy efficient operations and power sources (EVs, solar, paperless), we are committed to the here and now as well as for future generations.
- Making sustainability accessible
- Responsible supply chains
- Delivering innovative solutions
- Source is fully independent and not tied to a buying group
- Investing in a diverse workforce
- Taking action on climate change
- Supporting charities and local communities
- Providing a safe, enjoyable and flexible working environment
- Providing sustainable solutions
- Expert advice on emerging trends and products
- Nimble and reactive customer service
- Best in Class online customer account system! (thanks, Madison)
That's why sustainability is core to how Source Supplies does business and how we'll grow in the future. It's not because being green is fashionable - it's because it makes the utmost business sense. From sourcing products in an ethical and responsible way, to consolidating them in an environmentally efficient operating model, our approach helps us to minimise risk while maximising value.
Our goal is for Source Supplies to be seen as a socially and environmentally responsible organisation that inspires and implements solutions that protect the environment, while being commercially successful for our employees and shareholders.
WHEN IT COMES TO SUSTAINABILITY,
WE'RE COMMITTED TO LEADING THE WAY.

Source is a trusted partner for organisations at national and local level from a variety of sectors involved in cleaning and hygiene.
Simply put, we're constantly aiming to be the most valuable and trusted link in the chain.
Why is our team on the homepage and not buried in the footer under 'About Us'?
Because without our hard working, loyal team, we're nothing. The culture at Source is far from formal but this doesn't detract from the professionalism when it comes to providing our customers with what they need.
The team work their socks off to ensure our reputation for being helpful, responsive, knowledgeable and friendly is not just upheld, but enhanced whenever possible.
The DNA of Source comes from Dave. An absolute can-do attitude towards customer service underpins the business and creates the benchmark for the team.
Dave oversees many facets of the business, from Operations to Finance and together with Ollie, steers the ship strategically through constantly changing times.
Source was a light bulb moment Dave had back in 2005, pairing up with Ollie in 2010, to create a business that has a culture that values staff happiness and customer satisfaction equally.
Dave is still the go-to for many customers and staff alike as there is no one else that lives and breathes Source like Dave!
Former professional and semi professional footballer for 15 years, Dave, like many of his Source colleagues, can often be found on the golf course, somehow still playing to a double figure handicap.
With big ideas of business growth from the outset, Ollie set about developing the customer base from humble beginnings, cold calling from his bedroom whilst Source was operating from a shipping container.
Bringing the fledgling company to the attention of the industry with a disruptive brand and left field marketing was the modus operandi in the early days. Attracting intrigued prospective customers and convincing them to try the overly high bar of service Dave and Ollie set, facilitated year-on-year growth since 2010.
With the business now well established, Ollie is motivated by bringing innovative and sustainable products and solutions to the attention of, well, anyone who'll listen or watch his videos!
Ollie and Dave work closely together on the positioning of Source in the market and ensure the business is optimal in these constantly choppy commercial waters.
When Ollie isn't cycling or being carried round the golf course by Dave, he's out there banging the Source drum.
There isn't an order that can pass through Source without Stu knowing about it. The most dedicated Ops Manager out there! When he's not at Source, he's playing golf.
Accounts & Office Manager
Our longest suffering employee, Ny runs Source office and is the glue amongst us all.
Accounts and Office Management are Ny's daily roles when she's not looking after us all.
Internal Account Manager
Coming from a longstanding career in customer service, Tim is utilised by several divisions at Source with his key area being customer service. He looks after installations too, being very handy on the tools!
You can hear Tim a mile away with his infectious laugh and constant chatter about golf!
Internal Account Manager
Sarah looks after the orders for key accounts, overseeing the full delivery cycle and ensuring an excellent customer experience. With four sons, Source is her downtime! Except the fact her husband, Stu, sits 10 yards away!
Source Hygiene Manager
Byron is as laid back as they come but also has unique work ethic that sees him go far and wide for Source.
The softly spoken Northern Irishman is a long serving member of the team and enjoys 18 holes when he's not looking after Washroom Services.
Mags is incredibly hard working and never seems to stop! An integral part of our washroom services team who leads by example and is respected and liked in equal measures by customers and colleagues.
When Mags isn't working, she is renovating her house!

Source Hygiene & Driver
Tomasz takes his work seriously and completes it with pride. One of the more private members of Team Source, Tomasz is a key player in the Source Hygiene Washroom Services machine.
Tomasz sometimes can be found helping out Stu with Source deliveries, along aside his main role reporting into Byron.
Affectionately known as 'Niko', we've never seen him without a smile on his face.
As with all of Byron's Source Hygiene team, a strong work ethic is ever-present with Niko and he is a dream to manage. He does a great job with zero fuss and is a credit to Source.
Adam worked as Menswear Manager in M&S for over 20 years, gaining lots of experience in customer service and retail. A career change to Source has done Adam the world of good and he enjoys meeting our customers on a daily basis. Adam is deaf from birth so uses his lip reading skills and sign language to communicate.
