Hillbrush is one of only a few UK-based manufacturers of brushware and hygienic cleaning tools. Our factory is located in the small town of Mere, in the south-west corner of Wiltshire, 100 miles west of London. Our passion for innovation and continual product development meant that space at our old factory on Woodlands Road became limited, so we developed and built a new, larger factory and warehouse at Norwood Park just off the A303. The redevelopment took place in 2016.
The factory covers 100,000 sq. ft of land and includes a greatly expanded factory and warehouse, open plan office space, a staff hub, employee gym, a large presentation room, and the visitor centre, Visit Hillbrush.
Our brush making capacity has increased with two additional machines now in place. The continual development and expansion of our facility allows us to produce the finest quality brushes as efficiently as possible.
Features of the New Hillbrush
We house a dedicated moulding division within our production facility, equipped with some of the latest injection moulding machinery available. We can help you achieve high standards of quality within your production process, provided that desired objects conform to our tooling dimensions and weight tolerances. You can find a more in-depth article about our Trade Moulding capabilities here.
You might have also heard about our brand new attraction Visit Hillbrush, a visitor centre just off the A303 that combines a shop, a restaurant and a museum all under one roof.
Our shop sells quality brushware and personal grooming products, ideal for use around the house or as gifts. Our restaurant boasts a delicious locally sourced menu, an artisan coffee bar, a south-facing terrace where dogs are more than welcome, table service, loyalty cards, and the option to eat in or grab-and-go.
We are also extremely proud to have the UK's first brush museum, which includes antique machinery, interactive brush displays, information videos and infographics, an extensive timeline dating back to 1922 when the company was founded, as well as a Kid's Corner where children can play with brushes and colour in our free Activity Booklets.
Visit Hillbrush is available for private function hire and we also host activities for the public from time to time. To enquire or find our more about what we have on offer, please see our visitor centre website www.visit.hillbrush.com where you can keep up to date with the latest news and events.
