Our Jollies journey starts back in 2010
Having a newly established hire business supplying quality furniture for weddings and events we were keen to expand the ranges of furniture we could offer our clients. However trying to source furniture that not only looked great but that would withstand the rigors of the hire industry was not easy.
It became clear that to meet the standard of furniture we required we would need to maintain control over the supply chain. This meant working directly with the furniture makers—no wholesalers or dealers to confuse matters, reduce quality and increase price.
It was a daunting prospect but with a great amount of hard work, many samples and a lot of factory visits the hard work paid off and we were fortunate to partner with some fantastic furniture manufacturers that we could count on to supply us with event furniture that not only looked great but that was durable and offered great value for money.
Our hire business went from strength to strength. Soon the quality and style of our furniture was being recognised by other companies in the events industry and we were asked to source and supply products for other businesses in the events space, including hotels, wedding venues and marquee companies.
After a number of years sourcing and supplying more and more furniture for businesses in the events and hospitality industries Jollies was launched in 2020 – bringing all our furniture options and experience together under one banner and allowing customers to buy online in one simple and seamless transaction.
Whilst the number of manufacturers we work with has grown, what hasn’t changed is the rigorous processes we use to source and assess our producers. The methods we use today are the same that we developed to find our very first manufacturer and there are some keys areas that we won’t compromise on:
1 – We continue to work directly with all our manufacturers, no middlemen or agents – this allows us to keep our quality control high and offer our customers exceptional value for money.
2 – We will only partner with manufacturers who share our belief in sustainable and responsible manufacturing. All our manufacturers are audited to demonstrate a commitment to continual improvement in the working conditions in their supply chain – read more here
3 – Where manufacturers use wood to produce our furniture we ensure that those manufacturers follow the FSC chain of custody.
As Jollies grows we continue to operate with our customers at the heart of everything we do. Regardless of size, experience or budget Jollies is here to help you get the furniture you need to help your business can thrive.
