Chalfont Web Design has been consulting for Trading Depot since it was conceived in around February 2007.

The site was launched a year later in March 2008 with over 7,500 products, class leading photographs and sales from day one. The web site is now approaching a turnover of £4m a year and I still go on site once a week to help with all aspects of the business not just the web site.

The turnover continues to increase and plans are in place for a new and improved platform for the main www.tradingdepot.co.uk web site to improve speed and user experience. In addition, a number of sub sites have been launched, including one I am in the process of finishing Hamilton Depot which focuses on Hamilton Switches and Sockets.
