USB2U Celebrates 20 Years In Business!

USB2U Celebrates 20 Years In Business!

On Monday 3rd October 2022, we celebrated 20 years of trading by throwing a pizza party for our staff at our brand-new office and warehouse facility in Moulton Park, Northampton.

We invited former team members along to join the celebrations, including one of our founding members, Phil Battison. Phil, now retired, joined Sebastian La Porta, USB2U MD, to reflect on how the business has changed since they set it up together back in 2002. From selling technology products from a garage, to becoming a market leading B2B technology merchandise supplier, the business has gone from strength to strength.

Phil Battison and Sebastian La Porta reunited to celebrate 20 years of USB2U! Phil Battison and Sebastian La Porta reflected on setting up USB2U in 2002.

Throughout the day, staff and visitors were presented with gifts to mark the occasion. Visitors left with goody bags, filled with the latest in promotional merchandise, including our best-selling branded power bank the Pro 10000, and everyone's favourite selfie accessory, the Promotional Ring Light!

Sebastian La Porta, Managing Director, said:

“I am incredibly proud of everything USB2U has achieved over the past 20 years. The business has adapted to the phenomenal change in technology and buyer behaviour during this time, thanks to the direction of our management team and the tremendous effort of all our staff. I want to take this opportunity to thank our team for their hard work in making the business the success that it is today. I am looking forward to seeing what the next 20 years holds for USB2U.”

Here at USB2U, we specialise in offering branded USB sticks, power banks, wireless chargers and other technology products to  businesses printed with a company logo. We now finish 80% of our orders from UK stock and are able to offer a 24 hour express service.

Having strengthened our finishing capabilities this year with investment in a brand-new workspace as well as additional state of the art printing equipment, we are in a strong position for further growth over the coming months and years.

Here's to the next 20 years!
