Our Story - In Song!
Abandoman bring the Frequency story to life...
To celebrate the company's 10th anniversary, Frequency founder and Managing Director Gareth Limpenny spent an afternoon with musical comedy act Abandoman. After taking just a few notes the band then created this song which tells the story of how Frequency got started and prospered over the past decade.
You can read more about Abandoman on their website.
"The way to get started is to quit talking and begin doing."
The story begins With extensive experience in the telecoms industry Gareth Limpenny established Frequency Telecom with three colleagues. His vision was to create a company that excelled in distribution and the objective to simply deliver high quality handsets on time.
In our second year of trading Frequency achieved £9.9 million turnover. This was helped by a £1m deal with O2 for handsets we sourced when no one else could.
Turnover grows again...
Business quickly grew in a dynamic market and turnover reached £16million.
Jelly Communications Frequency were joined by John Jones and Jelly Communications was born. Offering connected mobile phone packages to the B2B SME market. Frequency’s turnover grew to £19 million.
John Willoughby joins With over 15 years telecoms and mobile accessory experience John Willoughby joined the company as Sales Director and was strategic in helping us to capitalise on the growing accessory market.
The accessories arrive
Through vision and experience we identified the potential market growth in the smartphone industry. With this growth explosion we realigned our strategy and began to adapt the product portfolio to include more mobile accessories.
With a growing smartphone and device market we established a relationship with Case-Mate, US based mobile phone case manufacturer.
Due to expansion an office move doubled the premises to 6,000 sq. ft.
We took the strategic decision to capitalise on the expansion of the smartphone market into Europe. As a result recruited a multi-lingual international sales team to build pan European distribution.
We continue to strengthen our customer base signing agreements to supply Carphone Warehouse.
We also signed an agreement with Nextivity to sell Cel-Fi 3G signal boosters
Another office move saw us triple our space in a 18,000 square ft building, needed to accommodate all our new brands and growing team. We also opened new offices in Bonn, Germany and Moscow, Russia.
We expanded our product/brand portfolio to include:
- JAYS - Earphones/Headphones
- Griffin - Mobile power accessories
- Motorola Mobility
- HTC - Genuine accessories
Case brand leadership in the UK for Case-Mate.
