A BRIEF COMPANY HISTORY

What is FCQ World Wide, Inc?
FCQ World Wide is an offspring of FCQ Eximtraders Inc which was a corporation established in Cebu City, Philippines in 1976. It mostly exported fashion jewelries.

Tell us about FCQ's history.
FCQ Eximtraders Inc started out in 1976 as a business among Francisco siblings, two brothers, a sister married to a Concepcion and another to a Quisumbing. That's where those initials come from. We like to think of those initials now as representing First Class Quality.

The company was one of the thousands born out of the puka and heishi gold rush in the 70's. FCQ did very well then and unlike most, even survived. Then again in the 80's, we pioneered the development of designer beads and components and did even better. The 90's though saw a break-up of the ownership structure and huge downsizing. Thus, FCQ World Wide, Inc was conceived. The company is now actively run by a core group of old-timers / employees who have stuck with it through thick and thin. And that's us...

What kind of items do you export?
80% of our exports are hand made, made to order, buyer designed jewelry components and finished products. About 20% are small household decor products, hats and bags that are similar in the manufacture process to the production of the jewelry items.
