Group55 moves to new £2m facility near Leyland
In response to continued business growth and future demand for both in-house and private label offerings; Group55 have moved to a new £2m facility in Chorley, Lancashire. The 22, 000 sq. ft. building houses the very latest equipment to maintain the company’s position as one of the world’s leading providers of products to the animal care sector.
In addition to all the usual facets you would expect to find at a leading manufacturer, the facility boasts two bespoke laboratories. An impressive development laboratory supports the in-house formulation and development team in creating innovative new products using the very latest ingredients, techniques and equipment – an asset that is key to the rapidly growing private label business. The testing laboratory comprises five state-of-the-art climate chambers to allow the company to conduct stability and compatibility testing for both Group55 products and those from external customers who will use Group55’s independent testing services.
Stephen Turner, Group55’s Managing Director, said;
‘Our new facility is truly exceptional and provides the foundations upon which the company can continue to grow and deliver outstanding levels of service, innovation and reliability. I am proud that Group55 continues to be a part of the extraordinary group of companies, based in Lancashire, that service the global pet industry.’
