Our Heritage

Connect Group began life in 2006, following a demerger from WH Smith.

Trading as Smiths News PLC until 2014, when we adopted the Connect Group name, we’ve grown from a single business into a broader based company. We are now focused on meeting the needs of a range of customers, with services that include high drop density early distribution, click and collect services and more challenging mixed freight deliveries.

The Group has a clear sense of purpose and is ambitious for growth, investing to pursue new opportunities that leverage our skills and capabilities. But we’re also proud of our past, and benefit from the deep history and achievements of our market-leading businesses.
