About Cordee

We're over 40 years old!!


Having started life as a sole distributor for rock climbing guidebooks published by the largest climbing clubs in the UK, the business now includes distribution of titles encompassing all outdoor activities. While climbing remains at our core we've seen cycling books flourish in the last few years and who'd heard of kayak fishing 10 years ago?


In 2008, we outgrew our premises in Leicester and bit the bullet and relocated to Hinckley. We had been packing our orders onto pallets in the carpark! Now we work from a 14500 sq ft purpose-built warehouse and have more than 1,250,000 items in stock at any one time.


Owned and managed by Chris Balic and Jim Wilson, with lots of support from the team, Cordee now has a unique and world-renowned catalogue of books and maps that is used by the recreation and book trade throughout the UK and the world - our challenge is to support our publishers by keeping the market supplied with their unique books.
