KBF Enterprises®, one of the UK’s fastest growing sports nutrition companies, has invested over £2M expanding its premises at Trafford Park.
The investment includes a £1.75M state-of-the-art factory and the acquisition of an additional 10,000sqft warehouse, to support the company’s rapid growth, both in the UK and overseas.
The expansion will allow the business, which is behind one of the UK’s leading sports nutrition brands – WarriorÒ – to increase production output by 400%.
The news follows an unparalleled year for the independently owned business with sales projected to reach £40M this year. The new factory will be part of 55,000sqft facility to boost production capacity, manufacturing over 48 million protein bars, four million tubs of creatine, pre-workout and protein powder, and shipping over 3,000 orders a day.
Streamlining KBF Enterprises’ production process, the new and improved manufacturing facilities include a mezzanine area to separate the weighing, blending and filling process of WarriorÒ protein powder tubs and RAW bars, allowing the business to cater to the growing demand for protein products, driving sales and ideally positioning the business for further international expansion.
This investment is the latest achievement for the business which has its products stocked in leading UK retailers including Asda, Tesco and WHSmith, is sold in over 20,000 locations around the world, and employs over 90 people at its Manchester-based headquarters.
“We are experiencing record-breaking growth at KBF Enterprises and have ambitious plans for the future,” Kieran Fisher, Founder of KBF Enterprises commented. “The investment into the new factory and warehouse is a fantastic next step for the business, as it provides more space and harnesses the latest technology so we can take our in-house manufacturing facilities to the next level, catering to the increased demand we’re seeing, while also maintaining an all-important competitive price point.
“We want to ensure we are able to continue to create new quality protein products that are not only affordable but taste good and are nutritious. The new factory will hold us in good stead to meet these demands and expand our business further by increasing our output and creating new opportunities for future developments and growth.”
