From the garage of the family house in Bournemouth, in September 1983, Jonathan Aris started Tower Supplies.It wasn’t actually called Tower Supplies then, but we soon had to expand our premises and ended up with a small building on Tower Road, hence the name!


35 years on, our company mission remains the same – make the workplace a better place – albeit this is now achieved through a vast array of intelligent products and solutions that protect people and enhance their environment.

From handwritten orders in 1983 we now receive virtually all orders electronically – most through our own online order management system, Ctrl Cloud.


A 75,000sq-foot Distribution Centre with tens of thousands of bar-coded product locations and in-house logo application facility is a huge advancement from the set-up 35-years ago.


Tower’s founding customer expected weekly deliveries made by Jonathan himself. Nowadays next day delivery of orders made by 2pm from our vast range of stocked items is the norm.


Tower own brand of “Bear” durable wearable products were introduced, and we now have our own products in many PPE categories, plus our signature brand of flame retardant and arc protective clothes, Fire Bear.


The company was an innovator with the offering of consignment stock many years ago and, with innovation as a core corporate value, we continue in 2018 to offer a suite of stock management solutions including the latest RFID controlled stores processes.


We have evolved with the perception of health and safety in the workplace from optional usage rationale when we started, through a mandated PPE requirement era and to now being part of an integral safety culture with customers.


The price of a product remains important – main items are a lot cheaper nowadays – but we now support more customers with measurement of the cost-in-use of a product.


Our 35-year milestone gives us opportunity to think what our mission – make the workplace a better place – will involve when we’re 40 or 50 years old. The incorporation of well-being with health and safety is being recognised already but will increase. The world is more environmentally aware however we believe that the safe, secure and sustainable disposable PPE and workwear will be considered more. Wearable technology and the internet-of-things applied to dispensers may revolutionise how we monitor consumables and replenish products.


We’ve got lots to look forward to.
