About Clearwater Hampers
The business was founded in 1979 and incorporated in 2007 on a management buyout backed by the Strategic Investment Group of National Westminster Bank.
Clearwater Hampers is one of the largest privately owned hamper gift companies in the UK and supplies food and wine and other gifts around the world, all year round. We are now based at Milton Park, Abingdon, Oxfordshire OX14 4RT. The modern combined office and warehouse of approx 2,000 sq m of clear open storage and packing space up to 7.5m high is perfectly suited to our operations, to high tech systems, the volumes of sales we now handle and to our ethos of care and attention to detail and service.
Our customer base includes many thousands of private and corporate internet customers (see below re www.hamper.com), major UK and international corporates, overseas gift agencies and department stores, promotional goods agencies, internet based affiliates and merchants including flower retailers. Bespoke gifts are developed for major customers. Approximately 50% of our orders come from outside the UK and in 2003 we won the Queen's award for exports. www.hamper.com owned and operated by Clearwater was launched in 1996 and is a leading on-line food and wine hamper website.
We have one of the most extensive ranges of food and wine gifts and baskets available anywhere to be delivered around the world. At the time of writing there are 200 gifts available on www.hamper.com as well as our “create your own” gift hamper feature which has been copied by many but never bettered. As well as the individual shopper being able to build their own ideal gift the “create your own” facility provides an ideal way for corporate customers to try first their own first designs of a gift before disussing with us how we can build this into an ideal, bespoke, corporate gift.
There are 16 permanent members of staff, increasing to over 100 with temporary staff for the peak trading times through the year, including Christmas time. All programming and design, photography etc. is completed in-house and is fully integrated with a bespoke in house designed business wide database system, which also links to suppliers', carriers', customer's and agents systems.
We distinguish ourselves by;
This is all possible with keen, lively and hard working staff, operating with sophisticated systems from ideal facilities.
