North Star was founded back in March 2009 and started trading in very humble surroundings during the infancy of the business, in fact the office was a converted garage at the time……..how things have changed 10 years on!!!

However, the core values of the business remain the same with long term trusted relationships with key clients and this focus will be constant for many years to come.
Finally all the staff at North Star would like to thank our Clients, past and present, for all the business we have been awarded over this period of time to enable us to reach this very proud milestone and we are positive that North Star will continue to go from strength to strength during the next 10 years!
