Our experience in brand ownership has helped us become one of the UK's fastest-growing private label contract manufacturers, working with brands, influencers and retailers all over the world.
Founded in 1999, we started our journey as a brand owner, creating innovative products and achieving global success with our flagship pet care brand, Animology.
As our sales grew, so did our need for support from the contract manufacturers we worked with. We quickly realised that their lack of experience in brand ownership meant they didn’t have the capability or experience to help us grow. That’s when our mission changed.
We became exactly what we were looking for – a private label contract manufacturer that blends expertise in formulation chemistry and manufacturing with experience in building successful brands. We invested in a facility that we're proud to show off to our customers and built a team of experienced professionals that share our vision for a better contract manufacturing experience.
We haven’t looked back since. Working with a range of emerging and established brands, we’ve built a private label process that delivers quality manufacturing combined with excellent service and support to help our customers grow.
What to expect from Group55
Quality comes first at Group55 and is embedded in everything we do. Whether it’s product development, testing or contract manufacturing, our quality-first approach ensures excellence at every stage.
We never stop looking for better ways of doing things. Whether it’s investing in new technologies and equipment or using creative chemistry to develop unique products, we see innovation as a responsibility to ourselves and our customers.
We understand the importance of open, two-way communication and pride ourselves on the relationships that we have with our customers and suppliers.
We share the ambition of the brands and retailers that we work with and want to grow alongside them. That’s why we continually invest in our team and facility to ensure we are at the cutting edge of private label manufacturing.
Meet the Team
Behind every successful product we manufacture is a dedicated team of professionals. From creative chemists, mixing operatives and production supervisors to skilled account managers, marketing specialists and operations experts. Many of our team have worked for leading brands and retailers before joining Group55, which helps them deliver excellent service to those that we work with.
As well as creating and manufacturing bespoke private label products for our customers, we also have our own award-winning pet care brand called Animology. Launched in 2010, we have sold millions of Animology products pet owners, retailers and dog groomers in over 50 countries around the world.
Our experience in growing Animology into a globally recognised brand has shaped our approach to contract manufacturing and gives us a unique understanding of the challenges our customers face.
