FDD International was founded by Findlay, Dennis & Dave back in 1992. Each bringing a wealth of experience from their established careers in the beauty industry, the three friends decided to pour their passion and efforts into their own business venture. Findlay having experience in Sales, Dennis in Marketing and Dave in International Manufacturing & Sales were a very credible trio, creating success through hard work, care, commitment, loyalty, strong relationships and personal service. To this day, these core values live on.
Over the space of 10 years, Findlay and Dennis both stepped away from the business, leaving Dave at the helm. Dave being the ambitious, enthusiastic, charismatic guy that was very well-known across the beauty industry and so passionate about introducing new brands into the UK market, built a new team around him. Steve Oates joined the business in 2001 as Sales & Marketing Director and a new phase for FDD began.
Today, in our 30th year of business, we are proud to say we continue to hold on to and nurture brands we have had since the late 1990s, whilst also partnering with new and exciting brands. Dave taught us to never rest on our laurels, work hard, look after each other and have fun, and we aim to never let him down on that.
