Factory investments will drive efficiencies

Hi there

We’re delighted to share our latest press release with you – this is the first of a series of investments that we’re making in the factory so that we can make our fabulous products more efficiently!

Yorkshire based ethical cleaning products company Bio-D is improving efficiencies in its factory by investing in new equipment.

Directors of the Hull based business have invested a five figure sum to upgrade its materials handling equipment, including a powder elevator and a fork lift truck.

Commenting on the investment, Bio-D’s Managing Director Lloyd Atkin said; “Since we gained an Allergy Friendly Product Award from Allergy UK last year, sales of our washing powder have increased significantly, so the upgraded powder elevator will be invaluable in saving time and driving efficiencies in the factory.”

Bio-D manufactures environmentally responsible cleaning and laundry products that are UK made, effective, biodegradable and hypoallergenic. They are produced from sustainable, naturally derived raw materials and do not contain chlorine or optical brighteners. All of the Bio-D range is suitable for use with septic tanks and are BUAV and Vegan Society approved.

Rachel Jones - I love this antibacterial wash. It doesn’t make me itch. It smells lovely because it actually smells like lime rather than a synthetic version of lime which most of the other stuff on the market is like. I have MCS and Bio D make things I can use and I don’t have to worry if I’m going to have a reaction to it.
