Grotech Named Rising Star at Renewable Awards

Humber Renewables Winner 2017

CONTRACT manufacturer Grotech Production Ltd has been named Rising Star at the Humber Renewables Award for its commitment to promoting sustainability across its business.

The Goole based agriculture and horticulture specialist was recognised at the annual awards for the way it had developed and embedded processes and procedures which supported its customers to provide sustainable products for consumers.

The award comes just weeks after Grotech Production Ltd became the first contract manufacturer in its sector to achieve Soil Association accreditation which highlighted the company’s internal and external audit trail and the way it developed formulations and sourced raw materials for customers’ end products.

While having a strong heritage of horticulture and agriculture manufacturing Grotech Production Ltd has its own powder cleaning formulations, Freshclean and Superkleen, popular with facilities management companies because of its compact packaging and effectiveness on diverse surfaces. The company has also successfully worked with auto companies on performance boosting formulations and high street chains on proprietary household goods ranges.

Specialising in start ups and end of ranges and offering confidentiality to all customers Grotech Production Ltd has the capacity from its East Yorkshire factory to produce non hygiene formulations from the development stage to on shelf.

Dubai Export Contract


Exporting can be challenging with complicated shipping routes and complex customs red tape to navigate. Here at Grotech Production Ltd we have more than 40 years experience of manufacturing chemical compounds for overseas markets.

In that time our team has built up a depth of understanding about how to ensure any export process runs smoothly.

This was tested recently when we won a contract to export Evercare Freshclean cleaner to a facilities management company based in Dubai.

They were attracted by the excellent results achieved by Freshclean on a multitude of surfaces. Tough but gentle, it brings every surface up sparkling but doesn’t adversely affect decorative finishes such as marble. It also exceeds environmental expectations helping businesses fulfill green targets.

They particularly liked the fact that as a powder they were only paying for the product rather than the water it was diluted in. This makes it both versatile and affordable. Keen to trial it they ordered a consignment for a speedy delivery.

Our internal team here at Goole quickly identified the unique documents that customs both here and in Dubai would be keeping an eagle eye out for. With experience of working on sensitive products containing chemicals we worked closely with our shipping partners Air, Sea, Road International, based in Cheshire, to ensure that the export documentation contained all the detail that customs here and in Dubai would be looking for.

Making comprehensive checks of the fine detail ensured that everything was complete before the shipment started its journey.

Paperwork was just one part of the equation. Freshclean is designed to cut down on packaging and transport costs by being a powder. This meant we had to ensure that the packaging was strong enough to withstand any turbulence it encountered en route.

Thanks to the expertise of our experienced team at our Goole factory, the trial was a huge success and further Freshclean has been ordered for long term use by the facilities management company in Dubai.
