Testimonials

CEO, Milton Lloyd Perfumeries

Our mission with UTC branded perfumes, throughout the past 44 years, has (under Union Trading Company’s continuing unique and continuing vision/ foresight and leadership) always been to offer to consumers with limited financial resources outstanding perfumery of the finest quality and at the lowest possible price. Since 1978, this unique and continuous perfumery cooperation between Union Trading Company and Milton-Lloyd has manufactured (in the UK) and distributed (initially in Kuwait and then throughout the world) more than 300 million bottles of UTC glass perfumery. A huge number. An unprecedented success. We believe that Milton-Lloyd’s cooperation and friendship with Union Trading Company is as strong or stronger today than it has ever been. And the future of UTC is bright.

by Peter Jackson

Marketing Director, Glemgas

It has been a long journey of over 50 years under the guidance of UTC that helped us to be market leader in Kuwait. All of our achievements weren’t possible without the great support and effort of the entire UTC team. From the ones in the past who have made such a great story possible, to the current and future one that god willing they will certainly raise the bar to achieve what now seems impossible to our eyes. I personally want to thank all of UTC for their precious dedication and support, and am looking forward to celebrate our new impossible achievements.
