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.
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.
