OLPRO set to double sales after investing in new bottling and labelling plant

Outdoor brand, OLPRO, is set to double the number of chemical products it sells after investing in an all-new bottling and labelling plant. Before investing in the new machinery, OLPRO would outsource the supply of tens of thousands of chemical products before selling them on OLPRO’s e-commerce website. However, the new investment means that the company is now able to create double the number of chemical products in-house over the next 12 months and the investment has also created one new full-time manufacturing job as a result. OLPRO is already well known in the outdoor industry for selling chemical products that are designed for cleaning various surfaces at the campsite, and more recently for chemical products which can be used to re-proof products that have lost their waterproof coating over time. This new investment means that the company can now look to expand both the quantity of the chemical products that it sells but also the variety of chemical products that it sells. OLPRO received 40% of the funding towards the new machinery from the Worcestershire County Council via the Here2Help Business grant. Daniel Walton, Founder of OLPRO, said: “We’re excited to now be in a position to bring more production in-house. Not only does this help to create local jobs, it also helps us to reduce costs on the products and continue to offer them at the highly competitive prices that we are known for as a brand.” “Bringing more of the production of our products closer to our head office is a fundamental part of our business strategy moving forward, as it helps us to become more sustainable in an environmental sense, but also gives us more opportunity to be innovative and have greater control over improving the quality of our products in a way that continues to be cost-effective for our customers.” Councillor Marc Bayliss, Cabinet Member with Responsibility for Economy and Skills said: “It is great to hear the positive successes local business OLPRO has experienced as a result of the Here2Help grant funding. The support we offer has not only made a difference to their business operations and generated local employment opportunities but has also helped provide a platform on which they can be enabled to innovate further for future growth and development.”For more information on OLPRO and to view the company’s chemical products, visit their website www.olproshop.com
