Believe in British Manufacturing...We Do.
Ebac, founded in 1974 is the UK's largest Manufacturer of Domestic Appliances!
Ebac is a true British manufacturer, by that we mean we actually manufacture our products in the UK at our factories in County Durham. We employ UK workers to design, engineer, produce, assemble, box and ship our goods around the UK and around the world.
Economic fact...The number of UK companies manufacturing goods in Britain is overshadowed by imported goods. As a result, virtually all the wealth generated by the sale of imported goods goes straight back overseas. Worse still, the UK economy does not create the jobs that would otherwise be necessary to manufacturer these goods and so Britain becomes a non-manufacturing nation. This means a huge loss of potential manufacturing jobs.
With this in mind, our chairman, John Elliott MBE DL decided to protect Ebac from ever being bought out and it’s manufacturing being taken overseas by signing his 100% share holding over to a Foundation. The Ebac-Foundation ensures that all profits are re-invested back into the business and in so doing protected company employees from any future buy-outs intended to take production outside of the UK
Ebac is also a world known manufacturer of Water-Coolers for companies countries across Europe and in the USA. In fact, Ebac is Europe’s largest manufacturer of office Water-Coolers with innovative patented technologies and once again, it’s all manufactured in our UK factories. You might also be surprised to learn that Ebac also manufactures Britain’s best selling domestic dehumidifier having sold well over a million of these products to homes in Britain and additional sales to many thousands of homes overseas.
In signing over all my shares to a trust allowed me to protect Ebac from ever being bought out to move its manufacturing overseas. It also means all profits are re-invested back into the growth of the business rather than being shared out amongst owners, stakeholders or shareholders.
