Laleham Health and Beauty and Universal Products join forces

DCC Health & Beauty Solutions (DCC) strengthened its market position in the contract manufacture of creams and liquids through the acquisition of Universal Products (Lytham) Manufacturing Limited (UPL) based in Kirkham, Lancashire.

Laleham Health & Beauty (Laleham), DCC’s existing business, and UPL will be combined to create a market-leading full service contract manufacturer of branded beauty and healthcare products. The combined business will trade as Laleham Health & Beauty and be led by Tim O’Connor, Managing Director.

Laleham Health & Beauty will be focused on continuing to deliver excellent customer service, innovation and new product development from its two high quality MHRA licensed production facilities at Alton and Kirkham.

Commenting on the acquisition, Managing Director Tim O’Connor stated, “I am delighted that we have been able to reach agreement with UPL’s founder, Mike Peters, to acquire this business which has an excellent track record built on the foundations of a strong customer focused management team, all of whom are staying with the business. The combined strength of our enlarged business will make us one of the largest players in the UK market, enabling us to offer our customers a broader range of services and will provide us with a strong platform for growth in Europe.”

Sarah Fernihough, Sales and Business Development Director, added, “I am excited to be part of another chapter in British contract manufacturing, where these two established businesses can combine a wealth of expertise in the Beauty, Pharmaceutical and Nutritional sectors, to support our customers with innovative products to meet the ever increasing levels of consumer expectations.”

Joanne Senior and Damian Stroud will join the Laleham Health and Beauty senior management team and will continue to be responsible for management of the Kirkham site. DCC is delighted that Mike Peters, the founder of UPL, has agreed to stay with the business to support the integration process over the coming months.
