About UDC

Strong Family Foundation


UDC was formed over thirty years ago, back in 1984, when father and son team Derek and Mark Horwood joined together to form The United Distributing Company. The two worked together to build the company into the successful business it is today with an excellent reputation in the industry around the globe.

In addition, UDC has built a solid reputation as suppliers of high quality, fully refurbished games to companies around the world.
