The Story So Far
Privately owned and independently minded, Creditsafe is changing the way business information is used by providing high quality data in an easy to use format that everyone in an organization can benefit from. Creditsafe is the world's most used provider of business credit reports and maintains the largest owned database with over 190 million companies worldwide. 90,000 subscription customers from across the globe have joined our revolution by using Creditsafe to make better business decisions every day.
Creditsafe was founded in 1997 in Oslo, Norway with the idea of using the emerging technology of the internet to supply business information to smaller and medium sized businesses who were previously ignored by traditional suppliers. By selling over the telephone and delivering reports over the internet, Creditsafe was able to offer its customers greater value for 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 in South 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 addition to these entities, Creditsafe has a shared service center in the bustling heart of the 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.
