Founded by Sir Charles Dunstone in 1989 with just a £6000 personal investment, Carphone Warehouse is now part of Dixons Carphone, Europe’s leading specialist electrical and telecommunications retailer and services company.

Combined with trusted advice and after-sales care, we make the potential of connected technology accessible and affordable for our customers. We employ over 40,000 people in 11 countries*, with almost 3,000 stores across our various brands.

Back in 1989 handsets were large, cumbersome and mainly purchased by big business and large organisations. Corporate clients were well catered for but small businesses, the self-employed and general public had nowhere to go. Charles realised that mobile phones would eventually become ubiquitous and named his company The Carphone Warehouse (CPW) to serve this larger market. At this time there were no such thing as specific consumer and business tariffs, and whilst these have evolved and various sales channels have developed in the last 20 years, Carphone Warehouse has grown and excelled as a supplier to mass market consumers whilst the networks and smaller independents have largely catered for business customers. Now that has changed and business customers now have another option in that they can come to us for their business mobile contract and receive the same famous impartiality and service benefits from us that consumers have been enjoying for years.”
