Conference Day Two

A choice of two tours:

The ever- popular the Fleece to Floor Tour that follows the whole wool carpet production chain with visits to British Wool, Howarth Scouring, Lawton Yarns and Calderdale Carpets.

Alternatively, there is an exclusive tour, for WoolSafe Members only, of a major cleaning product manufacturing plant producing over 30 million bottles a year. We will look at their research and development laboratory to see how they formulate, and continually reformulate, and test their products to keep them one step ahead of the competition.

There will be an overview of the production of solutions, quality control, bottling, labelling and packaging systems needed to run a smooth operation producing 70 different product types/ranges.

Places on the manufacturing plant tour are limited to 15 people.
