Dentons MD celebrates 40 years

By Nick Batten on 6 January, 2023

Successful Westbury-based business Dentons Directories is celebrating the 40th anniversary of its Managing Director, Robin Denton joining the business. 

Dentons was launched in 1967 by Robin’s father John Denton, and during the past four decades, Robin has supported the business, watching it flourish with the support of the Dentons team, all of whom have played a critical part in its ongoing success. 

From a small number of printed directories, Dentons has grown to offer an extensive network of printed local directories, publishing over 665,000 copies each year with 50,000-plus businesses being featured. Alongside the directories, Dentons has diversified by offering a UK-wide online business directory; Dentons.net and Dentons Digital, a digital agency providing regional customers with cost-effective websites and support services. 

Over the past 40 years, Robin has seen tremendous change with the launch of the internet and social media. However, the directories which sit at the very heart of Dentons, still lead the way. A great many people rely on them to find local tradespeople and services and their advertising customers constantly achieve outstanding results with over 90% renewing ads each year. 

Robin said, “I am delighted to be celebrating 40 years at Dentons and although over the years we have faced challenges and change, our business has evolved always offering what our customers want and need, with the best customer service and care. 

He continued, “I am extremely proud of the business, the Dentons team and the many years I have spent working with our fantastic customers all of whom have enabled me to keep on doing what I love the best. It’s very much a team effort with everyone playing their part, and we are looking forward to the future knowing that by working together we can continue to achieve real success for Dentons and our customers.”
