We work to solve your product problems and offer improvements
Everyone knows that the current business climate is tough, to keep ahead of the competition and to keep your clients happy you need to free up your cash-flow, be price and quality competitive and last but certainly not least, be on time, every time.
We have worked with many clients to improve their cash flow position by reducing the stock they carry on their warehouse shelves via very flexible minimum order quantities and payment terms. That is money tied up that could be funnelled towards a great marketing strategy, for example.
We have also worked with clients to improve their delivery satisfaction ratings, improve the quality of a product or an improved price-point via our extensive batch monitoring and lower operating costs.
Reformulation can be a simple step to improve a product’s quality or price point. Our highly experienced chemists are constantly researching the latest technologies and ingredients to provide the best value to our clients. We are innovators.
Want to develop a new range or expand your current range? Speak with the ideas factory. That’s us. We proactively look for opportunities for our clients via new ranges or in their existing ranges. We have our thinking caps on every day for you to ensure your success.

Reduce your supply chain risk
Every company is dependent on suppliers. We believe that good businesses should always review their supply relationships and often it makes good commercial sense to have more than one supplier.
It empowers you to have more control over your manufacturing quality and service, it reduces risk to your business continuity, and it provides you with an opportunity to compare pricing, quality and service.
Our customer service
Our Customer Service is truly second to none. It’s an old adage, but we honestly believe that the ‘customer is King’ (or Queen for that matter!). We recognise that our success depends on the success of our clients. We want you to succeed.
As our client you have direct access to all the key people responsible for your products in our manufacturing environment, from our Managing Director through to our Formulation Chemists. They are just a phone call away, no “gate keepers”.
We are collaborative and responsive to your needs and requests, and are more than happy to have weekly or fortnightly work in progress meetings with you as required; onsite or via phone conference, whatever works for your business.
It’s not as hard or traumatic as it sounds
HFM has managed many product and brand transitions from another contract manufacturer to us. It is a staged process that is constantly managed and monitored. It can be as sudden or as gradual as you wish the process to be; whatever works for your business. The benefits will almost be immediate.
Even if you are 100% happy with your current supplier, please take the opportunity to have a no obligation and confidential discussion with us about your product development and manufacturing needs. A small investment of your time may produce a better bottom line and reduced supply chain risk for your business.
