Burgess Hill Mayor Roger Cartwright, council leader Robert Egglestone and deputy leader Joe Foster recently paid a visit to Burgess Hill-based manufacturer of environmentally-friendly cleaning products, Bio-Productions.
Accompanied by the company’s managing director, Angela Gill, the visitors were given a tour of the company’s HQ where they had the chance to see the factory’s production line first-hand. They took in the whole site from the offices and boardroom through the laboratory, research and development facility, wet and dry production areas to labelling, packaging and the warehouse.
Throughout the visit, Angela Gill and operations director Phil Karn showcased the diverse products that make up the Bio-Productions catalogue, which has significantly expanded since business began in 1984.
Angela Gill said: “It was a pleasure to showcase our company to the council‘s top representatives. We are proud of our team here in Burgess Hill from where we manufacture and export our biological solutions globally. Our aim is to encourage local businesses, restaurants and schools to become greener and support local industry.”
Councillor Robert Eggleston, leader of Burgess Hill Town Council, said: “The town is fortunate to have such an innovative company like Bio Productions providing marketing-leading, environmentally-friendly products around the world. The company has made us think hard about how we can use public procurement to bring more environmentally-friendly products into facilities and to a wider audience. We understand that the company wants to expand and, as town councillors, we want to use what influence we can to help it realise its ambitions for its business.”
