Captain Fawcett Ltd, of King's Lynn sees a remarkable journey from kitchen table to international markets
Next year will be Captain Fawcett Ltd’s tenth anniversary. "Moving from the kitchen table to international markets has been an extraordinary journey," says founder Richie Finney.
Based on Hardwick Narrows in Lynn, and a West Norfolk Chambers member, Captain Fawcett is both a supplier and manufacturer of simply First Class Gentlemen’s Grooming Requisites. As the Captain’s alter ego, Richie admits that he didn’t initially set out to found a leading men’s grooming brand when he started making his own moustache wax on the kitchen stove at his home in Terrington St Clement.
Once the ball was rolling though, the business model developed organically. It was, says Richie, "about balancing risk, opportunity and collaboration while staying absolutely true to the integrity of the brand’s figurehead, Captain Fawcett himself". He adds that the Captain has always been grateful for the support of both the DIT and Chambers of Commerce.
