In response to continued business growth and expected demand for both in-house and private label offerings, Group55 has moved to a new £2m facility in Chorley, Lancashire.

In addition to all the usual facets you would expect to find at a leading manufacturer, the 22,000 sq ft facility boasts two bespoke laboratories.

A development laboratory supports the in-house formulation and development team in creating new products using the 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 enable 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.”
