Desmo at 10

A celebration of 10 years of procuring and sourcing major building materials for major projects in West Africa.

The name “Desmo” was inspired by 2 words- DESign MOvement and later by DESign in MOtion. We started as Blackforest Properties in November 2005 in a small office out of my home. We are now based at our new offices in Hertfordshire, in the south of the United Kingdom

The Desmo story

A word from Bim

As much as I like to talk about suppliers and my Desmo team or what everybody is doing, our number one priority is our clients. We want to say thank you for trusting us, for believing in us, for allowing us to innovate, for working with us, and for forgiving us.  I’m sure we have not been perfect over the last 10 years.

In future, we want to attract similarly discerning clients – clients who want to step out of their comfort zone and lead the way in quality design and products. We plan to work with international architects bringing specialist skills to our clients. Most importantly, we aim to continue introducing GREAT products.

My goal is to be the first in most things – to raise the bar for the competition to continue to look up to us.

Thank you for being part of our Journey.
