Lister Unified Communications celebrates 20 years in business

Lister Unified Communications was founded in 2001 with five people in a small office in Stonehouse – and this year celebrates 20 years in business.

The company may not have moved far physically – “just round the corner” according to managing director Rob Lister – but it has come a long way over the past two decades.

From two engineers, one member of admin staff alongside Rob’s brother Tom and fellow director Jim Clapham at the start, the company employs more than 40 people and deals with cutting edge IT, as well as mobile and office communications systems.

But that customer first ethos remains at the heart of the business.

Mr Lister said: “We’ve always chosen to work with products that people can trust and rely on, but it has been very much customer first.
