Supercharging our sustainability

We’ve joined forces with our customers and suppliers as part of our mission to achieve a net-zero supply chain by 2050. One visible change is the reengineering of our facilities and supply network to reduce our carbon footprint as well as improving our regional approach through the greater use of local inventory, reducing our freight miles.

From humble beginnings
to now

We’ve come a long way since JH Waring and PM Sebestyen kickstarted our journey in a London garage in 1937. Since then, we’ve experienced continual expansion that’s taken RS Group to establishing local operations in 31 countries, soaring past £1 billion in online revenue in 2017.
