All started in 1989 at a 2000 Sq Ft Old Toffee Factory in Edgeley, Stockport.

Some of the units had to be craned over the terraced houses in front of the building.

Rapid expansion meant a move to a factory unit in the United Trading Estate, Old Trafford, Manchester with a factory area of 7000 Sq Ft.  The factory was in production by November the same year.

The company continued trading from the Old Trafford Premises for 10 years by which time the turnover and number of employees grew significantly. At the beginning of 1999 the company purchased land in Salford and started building its new factories, on a 2.5 acre site.  The factory and office area is in excess of 40,000 Sq Ft and contains modern sheet metal CNC cutting & forming machinery, which is continually updated.
