Selden is an independent company in the ownership of the Woodhead family, manufacturing a wide range of specialised cleaning and maintenance chemicals for the professional cleaning, industrial and automotive markets. In 1973 five years after its inception the company moved to its present six acre site in the beautiful High Peak National Park just outside Buxton.
The original purpose built factory has undergone numerous extensions to its present 73,000 sq ft. A further 10 acre site (just across the road) with 80,000 sq ft was purchased in 1999, this has been partially redeveloped with 24,000 sq ft remaining and currently in use, housing our British Institue of Cleaning Science approved training centre, and additional warehousing. further development of this site is being undertaken in Winter 2006 to accommodate the acquision of the Decosol range of winter car care products such as screen wash and de icer.
Selden's commitment to quality in all aspects of goods and services led us to seek and gain BS5750 part 2 ISO9001 accreditation in June 1992. Never content to stand still the company was awarded the environmental standard ISO 14001 in May 2006. This accreditation is backed up by the IPPC (Integrated Pollution Prevention Control) environmental management system monitored and policed by the environment agency accurately demonstrating Selden's total commitment to the environment.
The company now trades in many countries around the world through a network of the finest, most reputable distributors in our chosen markets.
