Group55 wins Scale-Up Business of the Year Award


Group55, the UK manufacturer of pet grooming products, has added to its growing list of accolades by winning the ‘Scale-Up Business of the Year Award’ at the North West FSB Awards 2018.


The award was received as a result of Group55’s exponential growth over the past 12 months, which is largely due to investment in people, R&D and a new £2m head office that includes two state of the art development and testing laboratories.


The global success of Animology has allowed the company to transform itself from being entirely brand led to becoming a leading private label pet grooming product supplier, providing products to an increasing number of leading retailers and brand owners around the world.


Group55’s Managing Director, Stephen Turner, commented: “I am immensely proud of the recent achievements made by everyone at Group55. The company would be nothing without the amazing people who work with me and I cannot thank them enough for their dedication and hard work.”
