Distributor Corporation UK Limited was originally established by Jeff Stock and Andrew McKee and partnered with British nursery industry leaders to deliver new and innovative brands to the UK market to meet the needs of UK families. We brought a wealth of experience from our operations in North America where our brand partners were well known for their feeding, bath time and pushchair ranges in the national, multiple and independent retail sectors.
Since November 2022 DCUK Ltd became part of the UPPAbaby organisation and over the coming months will cease our distribution of other brands. Our future focus will solely be on the UPPAbaby brand and products.
Jeff Stock: Before co-founding DCUK, Jeff developed an extensive background in sales, marketing, private label branding, retail services, and national distribution. Jeff became the president of a Canadian industrial distribution company and with an intense focus on “treating customers the way they want to be treated”, his company was named one of the 50 Best Managed Private Companies in Canada. Jeff co-founded a North American children’s products distribution company over ten years ago. He is a family man with 3 children (2 sons and a daughter), so he knows what parents need – three times over.
