Direct Web Technology Limited has a zero-tolerance approach to slavery and is committed to preventing acts of slavery and human trafficking from occurring within both its business and supply chain, and imposes those same high standards on its contractors, suppliers and other business partners.

Company structure Direct Web Technology Limited is a trade only IT distributor supplying numerous resellers across Great Britain and Ireland with PC components and peripherals, many of which are imported.

Direct Web Technology Limited has no subsidiary companies and one site in Great Britain.

Direct Web Limited has an extensive supply chain and we procure goods and services in excess of £30 million per year. We work with a range of suppliers, subcontractors and partners each of which will have their own subcontractors, affiliates and associate entities. Direct Web Technology Limited therefore is connected to multiple entities (for instance in USA, Asia and Europe) through numerous contractual relationships across a number of countries.
