Hozelock sets its sights on the future with multi-million-pound investment

by | Aug 12, 2022 | News | 0 comments

Hozelock has expanded its UK presence through the acquisition of an additional manufacturing and warehouse facility at its production and distribution base in the West Midlands.

The investment marks a significant step in Hozelock’s long term growth strategy and will enable the business to expand its UK manufacturing capabilities in direct response to increasing consumer demand, both in the UK and internationally.

Situated in Birmingham just off the M42, the additional 6,000 sqm will allow the business to better serve its customers. The multi-million-pound investment also includes eight additional moulding machines, increasing the total number to 63, that will produce plastic components for a wide range of Hozelock’s watering products.

Also housed in the new facility, which will create at least 15 new jobs, will be head office space and a purpose-built showroom, to be used for training and to showcase products to retailers and key customers.

Simon Davies, Hozelock CEO, said: “As an organisation, we are incredibly proud of our engineering and production capabilities, with over 75% of Hozelock products manufactured in the West Midlands.

“This is an extremely exciting time for Hozelock. This new facility will enable us to better serve our customers in the UK and internationally and support our future growth by increasing our production capabilities across our innovative range of products, from watering to natural gardening solutions.”
