Over the last few years, we’ve been on a strong growth trajectory and are investing more than ever in our in-house fulfilment platform.

Extending its reach
In March 2020, LDC backed the management team led by Founder and CEO James Hyde, COO Neil Sant and CFO Simon Lisser.
LDC’s investment is supporting the management team to invest in a new larger UK fulfilment centre, further enhance its technology proposition, and expand the business’ client service and commercial functions.
Just two months after LDC’s investment, James and James signed a 10-year lease on Liberty 196 – a new facility on Brackmills Industrial Estate in Northampton. James and James will run this location in parallel with its current site, before moving fully to Liberty 196 in 2021.
During the COVID-19 pandemic, Cambridge Mask Co – a provider of military-grade face masks that filter out nearly all pollution, gases and viruses – met a 2,500% increase in demand. James and James was an essential element in their ability to help the UK and international community respond to the demand by receiving the masks in bulk and shipping orders out, to both individuals and healthcare organisations, in 24 hours.
