The company was created by the Leduc family. It was in the past mostly known for its buttons which were its main products, and only focusing on the then prosperous Belgian fashion market.
They decided to keep the name "LEDUC" although the Leduc family was no more involved in the business. Thierry Desmidt is the current CEO of the company and one of the owners. Transformed into ACCESSOIRES LEDUC, the company focused initially mostly on the fashion sector of activity, adding new customers, enlarging the range of products (buttons became minor in the sales), and developping export sales.
The development went fast and proved to be successful enough to compensate the loss of fashion customers, a sector hit hardly by globalization. Starting with Ribbings, then Webbings, adding Elastics, Buttons etc. ... The company made its name into this new sector of activity, combining tailored packaging solutions, innovation and constantly developing new products and ideas. That same year, a Spanish sales office was also set up in order to develop the sales in Spain and Portugal...
This Italian-based partner later bought all the shares of one of the two founders, emphasizing the internationalization...
When March arrived, feeling that there could be a need for materials to make masks, the company once again adapted in order to supply as many customers as possible in Europe with what had become extremely hard to find. Having anticipated the demand, 2020 ended up being a good year for business.
Accessoires Leduc increased its business with the Haberdashery sector of activity, through sales to wholesalers all over Europe, and started to develop sales online and in its shop to consumers... Still serving the fashion sector of activity albeit badly hit by the COVID crisis.
We then focused on the development of more online sales and on our then constantly growing business with retail professionals.
The international situation in 2021/2022 has affected a lot our retail industry customers and the few remaining fashion customers. We have kept on expanding our range of products dedicated to them and have started to participate regulary in the fashion fairs in Paris. Our move into more digital business has proven to be successful in order to compensate and our turnover kept on growing all year long.
