ENDS Notes to Editors Letts – The Diary Experts The company was established in 1796 as a stationery business in the arcades of London's Royal Exchange where merchants and traders frequently purchased stationery. John Letts responded to his customers’ need to record transactions and finances by creating the world’s first commercial diary in 1812. The diary soon established itself as an essential feature of commercial life. The rapid refinement of the product, with the introduction of detailed information sections, meant that by the 1820's the first modern style diary ranges were published. Letts is a world leader in its field. Letts manufacture over 22 million diaries in its UK manufacturing facility each year and its products are of the highest quality and design. The company is firmly established as the market leader supplying more than 40% of all branded diaries in the UK and exporting to over 75 countries worldwide. Letts acquired the Filofax Group to become the Letts Filofax Group Ltd in 2001 and comprises principally of two UK operations and eight overseas subsidiaries. Letts is an environmentally aware company which strives to minimise its impact on the environment by promoting environmental awareness to their stakeholders and by sourcing from suppliers who are FSC or PEFC certified wherever possible.
