Filling & Packing
Inside our purpose-built production facility, we have 8 automated filling and labelling lines to manufacture your products. We also have a wide variety of versatile filling, packing and labelling machines to suit your requirements.
We pride ourselves in offering a completely confidential service while we take care of your products. Our ‘one stop shop’ approach means we can fulfill your requirements to whatever degree needed. Whether you have a pre-blended product that only requires packing or if you want us to take everything off your mind, we can offer services from formulation all the way through to storage and distribution.
As a primary area of our current contract manufacturing business, we have invested significantly in our 15,000 square metre liquid blending & packing facility and can cater for both hazardous and low hazard products.
FacilitiesWith over 20 mixing vessels ranging in size from 30,000L to 100L, both heated and cooled, we have the capability for simple paddle, contra-rotating, high shear and scraped surface mixing. Key raw materials are stored in bulk tanks, with some having heating facilities, down to essential active ingredients being purchase by the gram if required.
ProcessOnce products are blended to specification they are packed as required, anywhere from bulk tanker down to 30ml. We have a wide variety of fully and semi-automatic filling equipment to ensure fast and efficient production flow, whatever the run size, from 100 to 10,000+ on automated 4 and 6 head filling lines equipped labelers and cappers.

Case Study 1
“The client is a manufacturer of silicone base ingredients for use in cosmetics and industrial applications, but its headquarters are not based in the UK and its UK plant is not conducive to the manufacture of highly flammable materials.”
Case Study 2
“An existing client wanted to upgrade one of their UK based facilities that provided chemicals in bulk for the food and brewing sectors, but needed to continue servicing their clients while the engineering work was underway.”
Case Study 3
“During Tube Store retrieval operations at it’s site, the client became aware of accumulations of contaminated water residing in some of the tubes. This was a complex and programme critical project that required an innovative solution.”
Case Study 4
“Following a factory fire, the original client needed a new manufacturing plant – and fast – for the manufacture of domestic / retail wood treatment products. This emergency response was a complex project due to the low flashpoint of the products and the need to produce a retail-quality product.”
Case Study 5
“The client prints designs on t-shirts and uses a liquid conditioner to cure inks within the printing process. The original supplier of the conditioner (and manufacturer of the equipment) was overseas and the local agent ceased supply to the UK, resulting in a cost and continuity issue, so the brief from the client was to develop an alternative liquid”
Case Study 6
“As a manufacturer of printing inks, the client handles a number of solvents on site to clean the equipment between products and needs to ensure that there is no contamination. It then must manage this waste product in the most environmentally-friendly manner.”
