Dexam is a passion that started nearly 60 years ago with a small portable barbecue.
Two brothers started the company 1957, travelling round the world discovering great products for improving the home, and importing them into the UK. They had a one room office, a high desk, a typewriter and a couple of dogs. Their wives did most of the packing, and their children came in to help - or hinder - at weekends. Their first delivery went to a shop in Ilkley, Yorkshire, which is still a customer to this day. And one of the children helping out is still here today, running the business.
Throughout the years, our principles have remained the same: innovation, reliability, friendliness and, above all, customer service. Technology has changed both the kinds of product that we sell, and the way we sell them. But technology doesn’t change everything: our staff, most of whom weren’t even born when Dexam started, are right at the heart of our company.
