More and more customers are benefiting from our cosmetic formulation expertise, supported by on site development and manufacturing. Wildacre has seen customer and product growth every year for the last 5 years. 2014 saw us increase our investment in both new equipment and people. In 2015 we are already planning for further growth – based on our customers ongoing needs for new formulations…
After 6 months of hard work from our development team, three weeks of intense production, We finally despatched our first order in time for a worldwide launch.
We obviously cant disclose what product this was but it launched in 33 countries on Janurary 1st and hopefully for us will cement our place as one of the up and coming manufacturers in the UK.
Steve Richardson MD says “This has been a fantastic achievement from all the departments involved within our operation. It also has proved to us that the investment we made in efficiency”
Our Customer added “WIldacre have been instrumental in bringing this launch from a idea to life. They have acted above and beyond the call of duty in order to meet the demands our wordwide partners required. This was fundimental in getting this project to market and even with last minute changes demonstrated their ability to react and deliver on time.
Two of our Shave creams have been voted in the top 5 in a American Poll of best male grooming products of 2012. One of our products hit the top spot with the other coming third.
Steve Meredith, Development Director at Wildacre says “This is fantastic news and it is testament to the team here at Wildacre, not only in development but the design team and also our operational staff” .
It is fantastic to see traditional British products proving such a hit all over the world and we hope it continues in 2013 and beyond.
As published a couple of months ago we informed you that we would be moving, after a few months of hard work, long nights and dedication from everyone concerned we have finally settled in to our new home.
We also took the opportunity while moving to upgrade some of our existing equipment. This has seen improvements to our dedicated lip balm filling line, meaning that we can produce 15,000 units per shift while maintaining the flexability to keep minimun order quantities low.
The move also marks the start of a investment programme upgrading some of the current plant , allowing us to service our customers needs more efficiently.
Operations Manager Danny Shiels said “This move has been a big step for Wildacre. The vision we had when we set up the company and where we are now far exceeds any expectation we had. This is down to the hard work and determination demonstrated by everyone involved. We are now in a position that with investment in the current plant and improved facilities will ensure that our service level far exceeds our already excellent standards. It is certainally exciting times ahead at Wildacre”
