151 Products Ltd. was founded in 1997 and originated from a family business that has been operating in the heart of Manchester for over 60 years. Recognising a gap in the market for products that combine high quality with competitive pricing the company launched small ranges in household, DIY and automotive brands for the general consumer market. Operations were originally based in Walsall but following a return to Manchester, after only a couple of years trading, 151 Products began to experience rapid growth in turnover, staff members and the size of the range. This growth has been steadily maintained over the last 15-20 years. The company now boasts new office premises just outside Manchester City Centre, a 200,000 square foot distribution centre, a product range of over 1500 items and employs over 75 staff nationally. Facilities at the modern offices include an in-house laboratory and a design suite as well as the main showroom.

Glasgow-based Douglas Laing & Co are independent bottlers and blenders headed by brothers, Fred and Stewart Laing, who proved the value of nepotism when they succeeded their father, Fred Douglas who founded the company in 1948. And, in truth, they've not let their Dad down over the past 25 years in charge. Indeed, they've grafted to uphold the traditions of the family - apart from the sheep stealing and cattle rustling. They have successfully expanded their markets so that their highly-rated ranges now regularly features blends up to 25 years old, using the original blend specifications handed down to them - and written out so they wouldn't forget them.
