History & Heritage

ACS has seen many changes over the years, since being founded in 1969, by our chairman Richard Wells.

In 1969 ACS started trading from a redundant railway station in Hellesdon, Norwich.

In 1972 ACS moved to, The Loke, Dereham Road, Norwich.

The next 20 years has seen gradual growth and in 1992 Richard's son Nick and the current management team joined the business. Nick was appointed MD in 2004 and by 2008 ACS had long outgrown the warehouse on Dereham Road. In 2008 ACS made major investments (with the help from NatWest) and moved to its existing location, Spar Road, Norwich.

The Future
ACS is and will remain a family run business, always looking for the next opportunity. Investing in local staff, IT systems, buildings, vehicles and many new product lines.
