Founded in 1999, we have been working with entrepreneurs, start-ups, brand owners, retailers and B2B organisations for more than 20 years. Today we provide a unique and unparalleled range of services to our customers including new product development services, product testing, packaging sourcing, branding support, contract manufacturing, co-packing and fulfilment services.
Our background is a little more colourful than other contract manufacturers so here are some of the things that make Group55 a good player to have on your team.
We have been a start-up
The company was set up by our Chairman, Stephen Turner, with just £700; so, for entrepreneurs and startups in particular, you will find no bigger supporter of your dreams than Group55. We love ambition and the entrepreneurial spirit and love being a mentor, guide and partner as new brands start their journey.
We are brand owners
Our brand, Animology, is one of the world’s largest pet shampoo and spray brands with sales in more than 50 countries. As a brand owner, we have worked with numerous contract manufacturers in our history, and were always disappointed with the service we were able to achieve. We set up our own facilities and became the manufacturer we wanted to find but couldn’t!
We are product developers
Our team of development chemists excel in meaningful and credible innovation using the very latest ingredients and manufacturing techniques to deliver future state formulation chemistry. Our team are up to date with latest trends and innovations and can collaborate with you on ingredients, textures and claims to ensure your products will make a splash!
We are contract manufacturers
With a focus on excellence, continuous improvement & investment of both our people and our facilities Group55 is a truly exceptional contract manufacturer capable of delivering outstanding levels of competency and service to businesses of all sizes. Our manufacturing equipment and offerings allow for us to cater for products ranging from white label products with no minimum order quantities upto million+ unit production runs of completely bespoke products.
We are fulfilment partners
We have been providing fulfilment services to our customers since 2002. Today we provide contract packing, warehousing and the distribution of goods from single pick and pack to container shipment orders around the world all operated through fully integrated software.
In a nutshell, we’re a full service contract manufacturer who can help you with all, or some, of your needs. We’re a friendly bunch of people who share the same excitement for brands as our customers do and we take a collaborative and flexible approach to all that we do to ensure success for our customers!
