CeX's history

CeX was started by Robert Dudani, Paul Farrignton, Hugh Man, Oli Smith and Oliver Ball in 1992. Together, they recognised that there was a gap in the technological market which is the area of used computers, phones and gadgets. They established a store that provides used but still high-quality gadgets and computers. Their efforts proved fruitful with their first franchise opening in 2006.
