Williams & Co

In 2014, 2015 and 2016 the company was recognised by the London Stock Exchange as one of the UK’s 1000 most inspiring businesses, and was listed in Real Business Magazine’s “HOT 100″ fastest growing businesses.

In 2015, the company was acquired from the Williams family by a consortium of management and staff, and most staff are now also shareholders.

We are proud of our commitment to paying a living wage, and to sharing the profits of the business with those who work hard in it.1000-companies-inspire-britain real-business-hot100

Our Values

We believe that our values are the bedrock of our business, and can be summed up in three words:


In any circumstance, we actively choose to do the right thing – because it is the right thing to do, even when it’s not easy, and even when nobody would know if we compromised. We do not do anything that we would not be prepared to see splashed on the front page of our local newspaper.


We look after the people who look after us. This includes staff, customers, suppliers and other stakeholders. Loyalty is a two-way street, and we place a high premium on mutually beneficial long term relationships.


We relentlessly search for ways to improve and grow our business. We are never satisfied with “good enough”. We are dedicated to being noticeably better than our competitors.
