About Us

Founded in 1977 as Protech Formulations Ltd, Grotech Production Ltd was established in 2002 to further develop Protech’s business as a specialist formulator and packer to the agrochemical industry.

In 1980 Protech Formulations moved to Goole, East Yorkshire, where it operated from a 10,000 sq. ft. factory, with additional warehousing space nearby. In 2005 Grotech Production constructed a purpose-built 12,000 sq ft factory at Britannia Road, Goole whilst retaining the original Larsen Road premises as a warehouse.
