Significant investment increases liquid production capacity

Following a year of unprecedented demand for its gardening products, Vitax has completed a significant investment in its manufacturing capacity for 2021-22.

A new, purpose-built bulk liquid production facility has been added to its manufacturing unit at Coalville, Leicestershire.

The bulk liquid output will supply the company’s expanded filling line production at Skelmersdale. The increased capacity will also present the opportunity to closer synchronise the operations of manufacturing and the filling and storage of liquid fertilisers, through to the distribution of finished product onto retailers’ shelves.

Carl Welsh, Vitax’s managing director and group CEO, says: “The growing popularity in gardening over the past 18 months has presented a range of challenges for the industry, more specifically its capability to keep up with consumer demand.

“The customised bulk liquid manufacturing facility will increase our ability to match production of the Vitax liquid fertiliser ranges to the changing seasonal requirements of our customer base.”
