With our 40,000m2 production facility, we can offer the ability to bottle any non-edible product. Whether that be cosmetics or other liquids, we can produce up to 2.5 million products every month. If you have got the idea let us know and we can make your concept a reality.

What we currently do

Here at Xyfil we stock a broad range of custom bottles and container sizes perfect for cosmetic products and more. Most commonly we produce E-Liquids for the vaping industry, CBD products and cosmetics. For this variety of products, we also pair the perfect bottling solutions for them.

Currently we use:

Hand Sanitisers: 30ml Gorilla Bottle, 30ml Spray bottle, 60ml Gorilla bottle, 100ml Pull Top, 500ml & 1L Hand Pump Bottle plus other sizes

Creams & Balms: 100ml Hand Pump Bottle, 60ml container, 100ml container.

All our chubby bottles are guaranteed in quality and safety due to being FDA approved.

Why you should care about your packaging

By using a holistic approach, we can provide you with tailor-made bottle types and sizes to make your product stand out in a crowd, with bottles ranging in sizes 5ml to 5ltrs and more. Partner with us and we will provide you with state-of-the-art manufacturing capabilities to create fully bespoke products.

As we are an Original Equipment Manufacturer (OEM), we excel at creating bespoke products for customers using in-house production services, from conception to manufacture, to take your product from concept to reality. We tailor our individual services to your exact specifications, offering a range of services such as product design, flavour development, manufacturing, bottling, logistics and more.

You may only be looking for a bottling solution for an already existing product you’ve created, or perhaps you’re stuck on the design for your packaging; here at Xyfil we can help you at any stage of the process.

Through vigorous testing, our ISO 9001 certification, quality of raw ingredients and more, we can assure the good quality, durability and life span of our manufactured products.

Differentiating from others in the industry with your packaging can be the key to success. The look of your product is what will initially catch a customer’s attention. If something attracts the eye, they’re more likely to click/pick up your product from the crowd. So by creating product packaging that stands out you could be tapping into new potential customers.

The next step

If you’re looking to create a new product from start to finish, or perhaps looking for a manufacturer to bottle your product, we can help. With an extensive range of bottle types and sizes, and the ability to bottle 2.5 million products a month, we assure quality, quantity, and efficiency. Already we have helped bottle millions of products for other companies from E-Liquids to CBD products including lotions and balms. Let us know if you want to take the next step with us too.

Why You Should Manufacture E-Liquids in the UK

We are one of the leading UK E-Liquid, personal care products and CBD manufacturers supporting brands worldwide as their businesses develop. At Xyfil, we provide end-to-end white label manufacturing services, helping you develop your brand from conception to reality. There are many reasons why manufacturing locally can benefit you when pushing your products into the market. Here are just a few of the reasons why your should manufacture in the UK, and how Xyfil can help with them.


Why manufacture in the UK?

The UK was one of the first countries in the world to introduce legislated E-Liquid product requirements and is still at the forefront in safety and quality. The UK’s regulations for safety and quality are often seen as examples of best practice and are implemented by other countries. By choosing to manufacture your products in the UK and with Xyfil, you are guaranteeing the exceptional quality and the safety of your products.

The UK and European TPD regulations are being carried ahead for other countries as the guidelines for manufacturing E-Liquids. That just shows how well-respected UK regulations are in the market.”

– Anisha, Operations Director, Xyfil

With ISO 9001 accreditation across our laboratory facilities, manufacturing processes and equipment, we at Xyfil continue to demonstrate the ability to provide products and services that meet customer and regulatory requirements. Since the initialising of the E-Liquid regulations and TPD compliance, we at Xyfil have been leading the way in safe product development. We were one of the first UK companies that registered successfully compliant products. Local manufacturing means that we can offer reassurance and security with your products. Manufacture local means you can visit the premises and communicate easily with our teams throughout the entire process.


British-made means quality

As previously mentioned, the UK’s regulations for the manufacture and selling of nicotine-based products naturally translates to a higher calibre of quality when it comes to British-made E-Liquids, personal care and CBD products. With Xyfil you can trust the quality of the products manufactured by us. With ISO 7 clean rooms that can produce 2.5 million E-Liquids, CBD products and Personal care products every month, not only can we boast quality but efficiency.

We also include batch code testing for complete traceability throughout the entire process. Not only are we able to trace the individual ingredients used, but also the specific packaging, the stages of manufacture and even each person that works with the product throughout the process. Ensuring quality is how we create award-winning products.


Local manufacturing to Global Distribution

Whether you are looking to sell solely in the UK, arguably one of the biggest vaping markets in the world, or across the seas, Xyfil can help you there. We are well connected in the industry with retailers and distributors across the UK, continental Europe, UAE, Middle East and USA. With an option of on-site warehouse storage for businesses with limited space, we can also offer logistical support to get your products where they need to be. With 10 years of experience under our belt, we can help manage your supply chain through drop-shipping to local retailers and customers across the UK and beyond.

It’s never been easier to reach a global market than it is with Xyfil. Not only this, but we are entirely flexible to changes in the market by offering bespoke services should things change. From changes in regulations that require packaging to be re-printed, we can offer our services to amend these labels, re-label and package your products and then have them distributed back into the market.


Why you should work with Xyfil for E-Liquid Manufacture

At Xyfil we provide support to brands as seen by the dedication to our white label services. Many manufacturers in the market began with their own brand of E-Liquids first before turning to help others get a step in the E-Liquid market; but we have been supporting independent brands since the very get-go, with systems in place that help support and build others.

An important consideration for anyone selecting a manufacturing partner should always be the risk management strategy of their manufacturing partners. The pandemic has taught the world many things about being able to assess and deal with issues caused by broken trade lines. Xyfil has a well thought out risk management strategy in place for every single component in our production and we operate a preferential UK supply chain policy in which we also evaluate the risk strategies of our own suppliers before engaging with them – we have back-ups for our back-ups!

During the pandemic, Brexit and supply shortages over the last two years, our strategies have been tested and proved through these rough seas without a single day of production lost.

Positive Trading, Recruitment Opportunities and Corporate Sustainability in Times of Global Uncertainty

As a leading UK manufacturer and contract packer, Xyfil Ltd was asked to feature in the September edition of our industry’s most well-respected magazine – Packaging News. 

Published by the British Contract Manufacturers and Packers Association, the BCMPA approached us to discuss recent trading in these challenging times, recruitment opportunities and corporate sustainability in the face of many global uncertainties such as Brexit and the Coronavirus pandemic. 

Please describe your business in 50 words

Xyfil is a leading UK manufacturer specialising in e-liquid, CBD and hand sanitiser products. We offer a range of manufacturing services including design and development, production, compliance, co-packing and distribution. Our Preston facility is equipped to produce 3.5 million bottles per month, delivering for local businesses and global partners.

How was business in the last 12 months?

Xyfil business has grown over the last 12 months. Our ability to pivot quickly has proved a key strength and provided resilience in the face of global and local uncertainties such as Brexit and the Coronavirus pandemic.

What markets do you operate in and are you targeting any new ones?

We operate primarily in the E-liquid market in the UK and Europe. However, we have diversified over the last six months into more generic filling and co-packaging markets. We are opening operations in the Middle East market and have been expanding on fulfilment for US clients looking to move into the UK and European markets. 

In light of the coronavirus pandemic, we began manufacturing hand sanitiser and supplying PPE to businesses, key workers and customers. Our existing infrastructure means we are able to produce and distribute hand sanitiser bottles in large quantities.

2020

In your sector, how practical is it to offer alternatives to plastic packaging? 

It is a little difficult as some of our plastic packaging requirements are driven by legislation. For example, Child Resistant and Tamperproof alternatives to small fill liquid packaging that can scale up are difficult to procure.  

However, our long-term aim is to be more environmentally sustainable and we actively look for alternatives to plastic packaging where possible. Many of our bottle types are already made from recyclable polypropylene (PP5) and we are working with our suppliers to ensure more of our products can be recycled.

How did lockdown immediately impact your business?

Most of Xyfil’s systems are cloud-based as our teams are globally located. We were fortunate that our infrastructure was already set up to allow us to transition rapidly ahead of lockdown to home working. Homeworking has proved more productive for some of our teams. The challenge has been around mental health and wellbeing as the uncertainties elevate anxiety levels. 

What impact has the pandemic had on trading?

Xyfil has been fortunate that we were able to pivot the capacity created by the slowdown in our core lines to support the fulfilment of frontline requirements such as hand sanitisers. The impact on trading has been minimal.

With rising unemployment, do you think it may be easier to recruit good staff in 2021?

Yes, without a doubt.

If you could change one thing in the industry, what would it be?

We would love to see the British Government support manufacturing and engineering in the UK more heavily. Like many filling and packaging industries, we have a heavy reliance on our machinery – much of which is produced outside of the UK. The talent and capacity in the UK to design and rapidly deliver cost-effective manufacturing equipment would help businesses like Xyfil to grow and become globally competitive.

Xyfil is a proactive purchaser of raw components from the UK but we consistently hit capacity issues with our UK manufacturing supply chain which means we have to backfill from abroad. These capacity issues indicate a lack of investment and development of the UK manufacturing sector.
