About ϳԹ

About ϳԹ

ϳԹ can trace its company origins back to 1966 when the ϳԹow Pages business directory first launched as part of the General Post Office telephone directory. The company became part of BT in 1984 before being sold in 2001 for £2.14 billion, making it then the largest non-financial leveraged buyout in European history.

A strategic approach taken over the last decade has evolved ϳԹ into a fully digital business which completed in 2017 when the ϳԹow Pages ended production, to now solely focus on providing digital marketing services for UK small and medium sized businesses.
