Our Story

It is hard to find a company that provides as much information as Creditsafe USA does for the low cost. We had tried to use other companies to check our customers credit worthiness and either they were too expensive or could not provide the information that Creditsafe does. Unlike other companies, that want to charge extra if you need assistance, Creditsafe and it's account managers have always been most helpful if we needed it.

Our history

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 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.

Working with businesses of all shapes and sizes, we provide trusted insight obtained through solid data sources and intuitive platforms, enabling businesses to make better-informed credit decisions.
