TM Celebrates it's 17th Birthday - Happy Birthday to Us!

We've got some big news to share: it's our birthday!

Today (3 September 2020) marks 17 years since Jason O'Connor, David Stoddart and Michelle Rae Stoddart launched Total Merchandise.

That's 17 years since the idea for TM was first born, operating out of the founders' spare rooms at home - and almost two decades of leading the way at the forefront of the UK's promotional merchandise industry.

What makes this special day even better, is that we are able to celebrate this milestone with the whole TM team in the office. And what better way to celebrate than with a spectacularly large McDonald's breakfast?! OK, so it might not be quite as decorated as our 15th birthday, as pictured above with Michelle, Dave and Jay above with just some of the balloons and cakes we had to mark the occasion - but hey, there were no complaints.

Our transition from 16 into 17 has undoubtedly been one of our busiest and most exciting years yet - and yes, we might say that every year but we really mean it! With the transition to remote working and then back to the TM headquarters, various brand developments, the introduction of brand new roles within the company and record sales. Oh, and not forgetting the fact we have yet again won two amazing awards! 

In December 2020, the team were over the moon to find out that Total Merchandise had been voted Sourcing City's Promotional Merchandise Distributor of the Year. This is the second year running that we have claimed the title of this prestigious industry award. The good news continued in August of this year, when we were delighted to learn that we had been voted as the number one business with a turnover of £5m+ in The South East Business Awards 2021, run by LOCALiQ and NatWest Business! Not bad, hey?
