The UP story
Beginning with a small spark of success in Oldham, we have grown to become a global success story. 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.
Since 1997, Ultimate Products has provided top-of-the-line kitchen and laundry products to consumers across 38 countries. We have since become a public limited company, achieving an annual turnover that surpasses £165 million each year. UP has strong business connections with Internationally renowned retailers such as Tesco, Asda, and Primark, and we are dedicated to giving 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 thriving 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, and most recently, a 3pm finish every Friday so that our employees can make the most of their weekends!
