A global leader in innovative consumer products

Products that provide solutions to everyday problems. Sold in stores, online, and on TV.

Our Story

The ISL group was founded in 1991 by Philip Bouldstridge. In the early days, Philip sold his products in Department Stores with live demonstrations. Live demonstrations not only provide a unique way of presenting innovative products to consumers, they are also an invaluable tool for learning general consumer behaviour. This led to the company’s expertise in Direct Response Television (DRTV) and infomercial production, which has live product demonstrations at its core.

ISL Around The World

The Industex family covers five continents and more than 60 countries worldwide. After the creation of its flagship office in Barcelona in 1991, ISL quickly grew to include operations in France, the United States and Canada. Subsidiary companies were also formed in Switzerland, Portugal, Italy, Germany, the Netherlands, Japan and Australia. The acquisition of Best Direct International in 2008, one of Europe’s top leaders in Direct Response TV for over 30 years, with its own TV Home shopping channel, allowed the company to expand rapidly in the United Kingdom and throughout several other countries.

A Fully Integrated Company​

The ISL Group has designed, produced and marketed more than 2000 products. The majority of our offerings come from our in-house design team while we source up to 2% of our catalogue of products from third parties. Our teams oversee the entire process from design to distribution to marketing for a truly hands-on approach that draws from three decades of knowledge and experience in Direct Response and International Marketing.
