Our journey began in Oslo, Norway in 1997, where we had a dream of using the emerging and revolutionary technology of the internet to deliver instant business credit reports to small and medium size businesses that were previously ignored by traditional suppliers. By selling over the telephone and delivering reports over the internet, Creditsafe offered its customers greater value for their money and undercut the established players.
Following the Norwegian launch, Creditsafe established an office in Gothenburg Sweden in 1998 before moving to the UK in 2000. Creditsafe relocated the UK sales operation to Caerphilly, Wales in 2002 and quickly grew to become the UK's most-used supplier of business credit reports. In 2006, Creditsafe France was launched in Roubaix near Lille, heralding a period of swift and continuing growth around Europe. Additional entities were later launched in Ireland in 2007, the Netherlands in 2008, Germany in 2010, and Italy in 2013. Creditsafe moved outside Europe in 2012 with the founding of Creditsafe USA in Allentown Pennsylvania. In 2016 we entered Asia by opening Creditsafe Japan. In 2016 we also returned to our roots and opened a new office in Oslo, Norway. 2020 saw us partner with Equifax and open our newest operation in Toronto, Canada. You can read the full story here.
In addition to these entities, Creditsafe has a shared service center in the bustling and exciting Cardiff Bay development in Wales’ capital city. This office provides a central location for a number of support and development functions for the Creditsafe Group.
