About Us

Founded in 1977 as Protech Formulations Ltd, Grotech Production Ltd was established in 2002 to further develop Protech’s business as a specialist formulator and packer to the agrochemical industry.

In 1980 Protech Formulations moved to Goole, East Yorkshire, where it operated from a 10,000 sq. ft. factory, with additional warehousing space nearby. In 2005 Grotech Production constructed a purpose-built 12,000 sq ft factory at Britannia Road, Goole whilst retaining the original Larsen Road premises as a warehouse.

We work with a range of multinational ‘Blue Chip’ companies, as well as smaller organisations that do not have in-house production facilities, and our expertise lies in providing a confidential contract service in the formulation and packing of powders, granules and liquids.

With ISO9001:2008 accreditation, we operate a quality management system to serve clients’ needs from the procurement of materials and packaging to the delivery of finished goods and the invoicing of the client’s customer.

Grotech have manufacturing capacity in solids blending, granulation and repacking and also in liquids formulation, filling and packing, and can accommodate various end-of-line promotional packaging variants and a range of delivery options from courier to next day pallet delivery in the UK and export shipping containers.

Together with in-house and contract analytical services, plus formulation and packaging development expertise, our market sectors include agrochemicals, horticultural chemicals, and industrial chemicals. We will consider all sectors and manufacturing technologies subject to volume and timescale.

We provide a facility for the manufacture of new products for companies in the nursery development phase and also for the mature and declining product stage. We can use the client’s specifications or work with their R&D team to develop a fit for purpose solution to meet the need.

We are committed to improving the sustainability of our business, and as such have been working with the Biorenewables Development Centre (www.biorenewables.org), through ERDF funding to improve our production processes, reduce our liquid and gaseous effluents and find better uses for our by-product streams.  Through this collaboration we are embracing new technologies with the aim of improving our environmental footprint.
