Paul Winter (Managing Director) worked for major electronic distribution companies over several years. Many of these companies closed their UK offices in the late 1990s. Subsequently Paul established Essential Services and Distribution in 1999 to ensure that his loyal customers’ needs were met. Initially concentrating on sourcing electronic components, computer hardware and also ancillaries. Soon customers started to ask for more from him. Paul re-affirmed his dedication to his customers by starting to offer them sub-contract PCB assembly in 2002. Essential Services and Distribution then became a limited company, trading as ‘ESD Ltd’.
