Susan de Zulueta, managing director at Halewood Chemicals, told Made in Britain: “My father founded Halewood in 1947 as an export business. He would spend 4 months of his year abroad, meeting partners and promoting ‘brand UK’; our company’s success has been built around that promise of UK excellence and quality. It’s over 70 years since Halewood was founded, and yet, with Britain having exited the EU, that message feels more relevant than ever before. Joining the Made in Britain network makes us all at Halewood incredibly proud and excited to keep championing UK manufacturing.”
