In 1997 we, at First Directory, saw the potential of the Internet for business use and undertook extensive planning and research to develop mechanisms, which would deliver practical benefits to the business-to-business market. We started working in two market areas and now cover over 20 different business sectors.
We are committed to delivering excellent value and recognise that our continued success depends upon a secure and growing base of satisfied customers.

Yes any Company that serves industry with a UK address can appear in the main directory and the primary market sectors they serve. Please visit ~/Entry_Form.aspx.
A website is just like a sales brochure, it only works when it is seen by potential customers. Maintaining high visibility within the Search engines for your full product range can be a full time occupation. We offer you access to business users who are not reliant on search engine results alone. By promoting yourselves to our large number of regular users you will deliver a larger audience to your website and make it more successful.
Our core activity is to provide business information, which helps suppliers to talk to customers and to help buyers to find new sources of supply. We do, however, like to recognize the individual nature of the businesses that use our services. We are therefore happy to produce tailor made solutions to support individual company communication needs. We also constantly listen to our growing audience of users and refine our information presentation to be flexible to their individual needs. We like to think that at First Directory we are very different.
We update the site on a regular basis however please allow seven working days as we always have to validate data before putting it onto the site.
Certainly, phone us on 0845 22 55 185 or email us (firstname.lastname@example.org) and we will answer your questions immediately.
