Amberol has announced that it will be joining forces with British manufacturer Leafield Environmental, bringing together a talented team with over 80 years of experience in the field of manufacturing sustainable plastic products.
So, whilst it will be business as usual for Amberol customers, both companies will benefit from increased expertise and support behind the scenes. Amberol will continue to manufacture the full range of products at their Derbyshire factory with the same team in place.
With a smooth transition which has been several months in the planning, Amberol’s customers shouldn’t notice any difference in the high quality of service or products that they receive. As Amberol’s Managing Director Patience Atkinson-Gregory explains: “The only changes that customers should notice will be positive ones. As a family business, we have built strong and enduring relationships with our customers. The Amberol ethos of providing personal service, value for money and high quality products will remain.
“However, the support and investment from Leafield Environmental can only help enhance customer service, as well as strengthening the Amberol brand. With over 30 years of experience in manufacturing premium plastic products, using similar innovative design and manufacturing expertise, Leafield are a great fit for Amberol.”
As one of the UK’s leading manufacturers of rotationally moulded litter bins, Leafield Environmental’s products perfectly complement Amberol’s range and ethos. Formerly known as Linpac Environmental, the acquisition brings together two businesses with eight decades’ worth of experience in manufacturing sustainable plastic products.
Philip Maddox, Managing Director at Leafield Environmental said: “We have been working closely with Patience to ensure that we maintain the Amberol ethos to ensure continuity of experience for their customers. We are excited to welcome Amberol’s employees to our business and are looking forward to working in collaboration with them. The business will continue to operate as Amberol and will serve their loyal customers as normal.”
Having celebrated their 50th anniversary in 2019, Amberol has a large contingent of long standing customers. Patience commented: “We would like to thank our customers for their invaluable support, especially during the challenges of the pandemic. I am confident that Amberol will carry on helping them improve their environment and the world around them as Leafield Environmental strengthen the Amberol brand and continue to pioneer our innovative products.”
