There's a lot of thought that goes into a name and in 2018 we launched as Speedwell & Yarrow. The speedwell and the yarrow are companion flowers that thrive and grow when planted together. And while they are true partners, they are a mouthful - especially for a company strengthening its roots and experiencing rapid growth.
So in 2020 we renamed ourselves Strongsuit.
The partnership to thrive and grow together is still there and stronger than ever. Our Strongsuit is freeing up your mind and time so you can focus on your Strongsuit - whatever that may be.
