A Brief History
Universal Products (Lytham) Manufacturing Ltd was founded in 1976 as a contract filler and assembler of liquid pharmaceuticals and personal care preparations. In 1982 Universal was granted it’s own MCA licence to manufacture pharmaceutical liquids.
By the 1990′s Universal employed over 100 people and was rapidly outgrowing its facilities in Lytham, so in 1995 a new 16 acre purpose built factory was developed.
The company was rebranded as UPL in 2004, but the core values and principles of the business remained intact. We value our position as a leading independant British manufacturer, and quality and innovation are just two of the characteristics replicated throughout UPL – visible in our products, our people, our manufacturing processses and our research and development.
Currently we specialise in Contract Manufacturing & Filling for Personal Care, Toiletry, Haircare, Skincare and Bodycare products, as well as Pharmaceutical and Liquid Pharmaceutical Contracts.
UPL is a wholly owned subsidiary of Fairfield Universal Holdings Ltd.
Our registered company address is:
