History[edit | edit source]
The company was founded by engineering graduates, James Strachan and James Hyde, with the name Six Works in 2010. The company was focused on storage, picking, packing, and dispatch as out sourced services. The founders coded their own cloud based software in 2013 that would allow real time integrations in to online stores instead of receiving batch updates via FTP or flat files. Their cloud based solution resulted in massive growth of the company, growing 300% in the same year and was rebranding to its current name.
James and James Fulfilment was awarded Queen’s Award for Enterprise in the field of innovation and ranked ranked #1688 on the annual Inc. 5000 in 2017. The company also ranked #547 on the FT1000.
The company has notably been presented with various awards for its services by several bodies including the European Supply Chain Excellence Awards, SHD Logistics Award, BT Retail Week Tech & Ecomm Awards, the eCommerce Excellence Awards, and were certified by the Soil Association as an organic warehouse.
The company launched ControlPort; an upgrade to their cloud-based system, in 2015.
