IDS was founded in 1997 with the opening of the UK company. Patrick Doyle launched IDS and now, after years of hard work, finds himself as Chief Executive of one of the world’s leading duty free suppliers to the Diplomatic Corps.
Patrick spotted a gap in the market all those years ago for a British supplier who could not only provide the British Missions abroad with liquor, tobacco and cosmetics but also provide the London embassies with a next day delivery service – a service which still has not been matched by any other supplier.
In 2007, Patrick saw an opportunity to expand the business to the Middle East, offering our customers in East Africa and Asia a much faster turnaround on their liquor deliveries. IDS Dubai was opened in August 2008– enjoying instant success with the local Missions. IDS Dubai now boasts state-of-the-art offices and warehouses in Dubai’s Jebel Ali.
In 2012, Patrick decided to take the IDS service to Eastern Europe and commenced a monthly delivery service to Moscow.
