About Swallowfield Plc

Swallowfield started in Wellington, Somerset 137 years ago and we’re proud to say we’re still here.  Established by award-winning chemist, Walter Gregory, the company began as a simple high-street pharmacy and quickly developed into a pioneering manufacturer, eventually filling the first commercial aerosols in 1950. Since then, the company has continued to innovate, regularly investing in new technology, groundbreaking packaging formats and a world-class manufacturing infrastructure that today develops around 2000 new products each year. We’re delighted to be able to offer more than 130 years’ worth of experience in delivering products from prototype to final supply.

Founded on principals of pioneering excellence, customer satisfaction and quality. Swallowfield is a market leader in the development, manufacture and delivery of personal care and beauty products.

Whether full-service or contract filling, we have the expertise and flexibility to deliver products that exceed the expectations of our clients and help to shape the future of the market.

The platform for our success is a contribution of capabilities that are critical to deliver a full service package to our clients:

  • Industry leading R&D and Regulatory Expertise
  • Quality Assurance
  • Flexible and efficient manufacturing
  • Market Trend Analysis and Perspective
  • Graphic Design skills and tools

We have a world leading reputation in the development and manufacture of aerosol products. Bag on Valve, Bag in Can, haircare, body care, shaving, medical devices, you name it. If it can be aerosolised there’s no-one better to work with.

Beyond aerosols we have also established a strong reputation across prestige and mass brand owners for our capability in hot pour products (lip, underarm, hair styling etc), roll-ons, cosmetic pencils, tube filling, fragrance blending and filling, gifting, pressed powders and many more.

Our People – Our Values

The success of our business is dependent upon the quality, commitment and behaviour of our employees. With clear policies and direction we strive for the highest standards of behaviour, this is implemented through our ‘Build a better Swallowfield’ discipline. The foundation of this discipline is our values.

‘Making it happen’ – means being action oriented and being accountable for what we have agreed and committed to do with colleagues, customers and suppliers. If something needs doing, let’s get it done.

‘Making it better’ – means a mind-set of continuous improvement in everything we do and a challenge to not only identify things that are not working so well, but also to do something about it.

 ‘Making it together’ – reminds us that whatever we are trying to make happen or to make better, we are highly unlikely to be able to do it on our own. We will always need the involvement and support of colleagues, customers and suppliers to ensure solutions work best for all concerned.
