HPP – British manufacturing at its best H


ILL’S Panel Products (HPP) is a furniture components manufacturer and distributor serving the British KBB industry. Customers include small and large furniture installers, showrooms, construction firms, property developers, architects and interior specifiers. Formed in 1991 in Oldham, Greater Manchester, and with a second distribution centre in Sheffield, HPP has expanded greatly. It now offers more than 6,500 products, has over 2,000 trade customers nation-wide and more than 200 staff. The company is headed by brothers Martin and Stephen Hill and managing director Keith Wardrope.


As HPP’s business has grown in the Midlands and south of England, the company has expanded its regional support, sales staff and logistic services to offer next-day delivery.


HPP manufactures British-made products including a huge range of full and processed


melamine faced chipboard (MFC) sheet material, vinyl-wrapped and PVC-edged doors, sliding doors and furniture fittings. Own-brand products include Avanti doors, Glide sliding doors, and Aspect and Aspire kitchens and bedrooms.


It also supplies board and worktop products by brands including Egger, Kronospan, Wilsonart and XyloCleaf; Blum drawers and hinges, Sensio lighting, Blanco and Reginox sinks and taps, and the highly-versatile Slim Storage System for wardrobes, shelving and room dividers.


In the past year, HPP has invested heavily across the business in manufacturing, warehousing, customer orders, support and delivery services. This has boosted accuracy, efficiency, capacity and bespoke manufacturing services for individual orders. Over 90 per cent of HPP’s operations are handled internally including websites, transport, recruitment and IT systems.


HPP’s head site in Oldham now has one of the UK’s largest automated product storage and


picking systems, new routers and edge-banders within a new 14,000 sq ft warehouse. Now more expansion is underway with a new 19,000 sq ft warehouse, boosting the product range and manufacturing capacity. HPP now has over 250,000 sq ft of floorspace across its two UK sites. In the autumn, work will begin on installing an extra production line at Oldham.


Elsewhere HPP has increased its marketing materials for trade installers, showrooms and home consumers, and its online ordering and one-stop- shop support services, which make it quite unique. As a result of all this progress, business has flourished for HPP despite the uncertainties of Brexit. Successes include: • A 16 per cent increase in turnover • Investment of over £2million across the business in the last 12 months


• Job creation in manufacturing and support roles


• Supplying 1,700 new apartments in Manchester


• HPP being shortlisted as a ‘Manufacturer of the Year’ finalist in the 2018 Made In The North West Awards.
