Blue box socks
Meet one of our clients!
Blue Box Socks is a Doncaster-based family business which, in less than 7 years, has grown to be one of the UK’s leading suppliers of disposable socks and footwear.
The company has been operating since 2007 when proprietor, Rob Douthwaite spotted a gap in the market.
Rob explains, “I was working for a company that managed Tenpin Bowling Centres and Health Clubs. The supplier of the disposable socks that we used went out of business and we weren’t able to find another supplier locally. I realised there must be an opportunity for a local supplier, as other Bowling Centres had the same problem, so I decided to set up a web site and start a company supplying disposable socks to bowling centres and that’s how Blue Box Socks began.”
