The UP story
From a spark in Oldham to a global success. We’re the cogs in the retail machine, designing, manufacturing, and distributing innovative branded products at the best prices to a mass market. Our brand portfolio includes Salter, Beldray and Progress. Each has a reputation for high quality and on trend design, and they’re faithful household names – some that even your grandparents love.
Ultimate Products has been bringing branded kitchen and laundry products to the market since 1997. Now a public limited company, our annual turnover exceeds £150 million. We’ve established strong working relationships with Internationally recognised retailers, including Tesco, Asda and Primark, filling the shelves of the world’s favourite stores across 38 countries. Despite our continued growth, strong corporate values remain at UP’s core; we are committed to supporting local charities and initiatives to give back to the community that helped build us.
Our people are a key driver to our success and we are proud of creating an environment that enables our colleagues to thrive both professionally and personally, which is why we recently invested £1.6M in a brand new office at our Oldham headquarters. With newly implemented employee wellbeing and environmental committees, we are dedicated to empowering our people to have a voice and share their views. We recognise how important it is to recharge, which is why we’ve also introduced complimentary yoga and boxing sessions this year. In a recent survey, 95% of employees find their job interesting and challenging! A figure that we’re hoping to improve even further into 2023!
