Stop Relying on Imports

It has been an exciting 27 months since we opened the doors to the UK’s only MeltBlown absorbent manufacturing facility. ESP had been active in the UK market for several years preceding the opening of ESP-UK via imports from our large US based facility. Until our arrival, distributors in the UK had been relying solely on imports. We recognised that the UK market has matured without any local manufacturing, which meant that the supply chains were more cumbersome and expensive than they needed to be. Our concept is simple, a shorter supply chain means better prices and quicker lead times for distributors, and we never sell to the end user.

Furthermore, as the economic landscape is changing in the UK it makes more sense to support a local producer, which isolates currency exposure not to mention future potential import duties. We are firm believers that manufacturing creates solid jobs and helps create economic power and we are very thankful for the support we have received thus far.

The facility in Oldham is the latest in the growing international group of companies that is the ESP group. We have been in business for eleven years and are combined, one of the largest dedicated spill sorbent manufacturers in the world. In the UK we have programs specifically designed to meet the challenges of the spill contract market such as; anti-static certified products, high-loft lighter weight absorbents, stocked absorbent boom and all the standard related spill products. Please call us on +44 (0) 8458 385377 and give us a chance to help make you more money with less complexity.
