Our Story

Laurence spent 25 years working for a number of large organisations including FGF, CCF, CPD and Orion Trent. During his employment career, he undertook many roles including senior estimator, branch manager, company buyer and lastly commercial manager.

Our Approach

Silverfox Supplies Ltd’s success is built upon the ethos of providing fantastic customer service, getting it right first time, every time and ensuring that communication between clients and suppliers is second to none.
