Ducatillon

Le leader français de la vente à distance de matériel d’élevage.

Founded in 1997, Ducatillon is France’s market leader in distance selling of hobby farming and hunting equipment and outdoor leisure goods. The company, which offers over 22,000 items, has a unique multi-specialist positioning in France spanning hunting attire and accessories, livestock equipment, gardening products, kitchen goods, canine accessories and fishing equipment.

Ducatillon’s strong growth over the last five years is thanks to (i) its high quality customer service, spearheaded by specialist sales advisors, (ii) its exclusive products (own-label brands and exclusive distribution agreements), (iii) its three complementary distribution networks (15 catalogues, 7 e-commerce sites and a showroom based in Cysoing).

Ducatillon has over 500,000 customers, with the number increasing regularly each year. It generated sales of €22 million in 2016 with 80 employees.
