Reabrook celebrates 50 years of making new products

Reabrook Limited proudly commemorated 50 years of formulating and manufacturing market-leading products recently, with their golden anniversary celebrations at their site in Moira, on the Leicestershire/Derbyshire border.

The company began in 1968 as a small business called Arrow Chemicals in South Derbyshire.  Half a century later, Reabrook is still supplying innovative products in a variety of packing formats for commercial, industrial and retail applications throughout the world. The company sprang from humble origins, supplying industrial chemical cleaning solutions in liquid format but has grown over the years to also incorporate products in aerosol and tube formats, supplying a wide range of markets from oil and gas and automotive through to haircare and toiletries.

Reabrook was acquired in 1987 by Yule Catto PLC and returned to private ownership in 2006 with a management buy-out by current owners Malcolm Watkins and Tony Brealey.  “We are an independent and privately-owned company. Since the buyout we’ve really concentrated on developing the business by putting a lot of our resources into new manufacturing capabilities at our 14-acre site here in Moira in Derbyshire,” explains Tony.

Founded on the philosophy of great products with excellent customer service Reabrook also lead the way in responsible manufacturing, with sustainability and measures to reduce energy consumption being introduced years before it became a social issue.

Throughout the years, Reabrook have also been a generous contributor to The National Forest, helping to establish woodland, parkland and forest at their sponsored site Boothorpe, near their headquarters in Moira.  Their sponsorship of The National Forest has continued recently with the launch of the ‘Timber’ festival which is an extraordinary new festival exploring the transformative impact of forests, celebrating woodland culture.

As part of the celebrations, Reabrook have thanked their employees and customers for their unwavering support through the years, providing cakes and embroidered polo shirts for employees. As a further reward, employees have also been participating in a weekly prize draw with staff winning a gift every week.  Prizes won so far range from Amazon, Bella Italia, Love2Shop and Sainsburys vouchers with gifts such as hampers being kindly donated by key customers and partners in celebration of their success and achievements over the 50 years.
