History

FDD International was founded in 1992 by Dave Clark, with the aim of building the best distribution operation for beauty products in the UK, servicing both the wholesale and retail trade. Two and a half decades on, Dave has achieved that aim and more, and as our Company Chairman remains committed to driving growth and innovation throughout the business. Over the last 25 years we are proud to have won an impressive array of industry-leading awards, both for ourselves and on behalf of our clients. For example, Boots awarded FDD ‘Best in Class NPD Launch’ for RapidLash® – a hugely successful campaign that saw one product sold every 30 seconds during the launch period.
FDD International now employs 26 people in the UK and has strategic partnerships with international distributors in 36 countries. We provide state-of-the-art storage facilities adjacent to our head office in Ascot, Berkshire. We blend our traditional values of hard work and personal service with a pioneering, contemporary attitude to create the very best environment for our clients’ brands to flourish.

Directors

Our business might be about product. But it is our people that make it work so well.  Our management team are all industry professionals with vast experience and great affinity with the brands and products we work with. This culture of blending expertise with enthusiasm filters throughout the business.
