An Emerging Star

Company News

Contract manufacturer Grotech Production has been named "Rising Star" at the Humber Renewables Awards 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 it 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.


The company has a strong heritage of horticulture and agriculture manufacturing and develops its own powder cleaning formulations, Freshclean and Superkleen, which are popular with facilities management companies because of their compact packaging and effectiveness on diverse surfaces. 

Grotech Production has also worked with automotive companies on performance boosting formulations and high street chains on proprietary household goods ranges - and is acknowledged for its expertise in research and development (R&D) and contract manufacturing capabilities for clients in the agriculture, horticulture, household and petrochemical sectors.


Managing Director, Martin Usher, collected the award from sponsors Arco, saying: “We are delighted that the many small steps that we take towards improving the sustainability of everything that we do and the Agriculture sector that we serve have been recognised.


“We will continue to strive to support all of our customers with design and manufacturing innovation wherever we can.”
