History

Our services run deep and are backed by over 28 years of experience.

Our chairman Andy Mead began the Finishing line from his garage almost 30 years ago.

There is always a turning point in the evolution of every business.

That point for Andy came late one Friday afternoon in the depths of the winter of 1987. After months of trying to win leads for the company he received a phone call requesting 50,000 reply cards stuck into a magazine. 

The caveat; they had to be ready by the following Monday morning.

So never the one to shy away from a challenge, Andy knuckled down and with the help of friends and family they spent a very long weekend (with lots of glue and match sticks) sticking them in by hand.

At 8am the job was handed over, the client was delighted and the Finishing Line was off and running.

Over the following years the premises may have changed but the business has continued to grow and retain it’s core ethical values of outstanding attention to detail, an absolute passion for focus on customer service and an unbridled drive for continued innovation. 

…Today the company employs over 200 people and handles in excess of 60 million items a year.
