I agree with the above comments regarding the difference between UK and US English. However, regarding the use of commas, have a look at the example below:
Our local supplier, Joe Jones Ltd, sent a box of apples.
Here, we need the commas as we are giving the name of our local supplier. Grammar experts call this the 'appositive'.
However, if we remove 'our local supplier' from the sentence, we don't need any commas.
Joe Jones Ltd sent a box of apples.
I hope this helps!
