In March 1999, CVC Funds completed a second buyout of Hozelock. Since then Hozelock has developed into a broad based company with strong business-to-business and retail divisions, spread across Europe and other world-wide markets. Over half of the group's sales are generated outside of the UK.

Headquartered in Birmingham, the group is the clear sector leader in the UK under the iconic Hozelock brand. It also has a leading European position in Business to Business markets under the powerful Tricoflex trademark.

50% of the group's production is in the state of the art manufacturing facility in Birmingham, 25% in a dedicated hose factory in France and 25% manufactured in China, Malaysia and Taiwan. The Hozelock Group prides itself in its supply chain infrastructure, providing outstanding service to a wide customer base.
