Kerax Heads Down Under in £5 million 5 Year Distribution Deal

Published: 18th May 2020

Kerax has struck a five-year, £5million (GBP) distribution deal in Australia for its internationally recognised range of Kerax Candle Waxes, including the highly popular KeraSoy range of 100% natural candle waxes.

The exclusive distribution deal with Vontero will see Kerax Candle Waxes – manufactured in Lancashire, England – gain a major foothold Down Under. Vontero are global leaders in candle making and fragrance oil supplies, based in Sydney with further distribution centres in Melbourne, Brisbane and Perth.

Kerax is a global leader in candle wax manufacture, complete with an in-house research and development team of chemists, engineers and production experts based at the Kerax factory and R&D facilities in Chorley, Lancashire. Kerax Candle Waxes are manufactured in food-grade stainless steel blending vessels to ensure consistent quality and reliability for the end user.

The leading UK firm has made significant investment in blending vessels and finishing systems dedicated solely to the manufacture of candle waxes, in addition to continuous investment in, and upgrades to, existing infrastructure.

Ian Appleton, Director of Kerax Limited said, “Despite the challenging circumstances we all find ourselves in the midst of the Covid-19 pandemic, we are delighted and fortunate that opportunities continue to grow for our Kerax Candle Wax range. We are delighted to be working with Vontero to make Kerax Waxes widely available in the Australian market where we see huge appetite for our UK-manufactured and developed product range.”

Sir Lindsay Hoyle, MP for Chorley and Speaker of the House of Commons said, “The £5million deal to supply candle waxes to Australia over the next five years is wonderful news for the Chorley based business. Despite the extremely challenging circumstances that businesses face and the huge impact this is having, Kerax continue to show why they are a genuine market leader. I am sure news of the deal will inject a fresh wave of optimism and confidence for the company and its employees. I would like to congratulate all those who have worked so hard to secure this deal. Kerax is a valued employer here in Chorley and over the years they have invested heavily in R&D to ensure their products are of the highest quality. This investment has paid dividends in light of the current news and I wish the company every success in the future”

The Kerax Candle Wax range includes the popular and highly regarded KeraSoy range of natural soy-based candle waxes used by professionals and hobbyists alike. KeraSoy’s popularity is down to ease of use and excellent results achievable while benefiting from a product that is 100% natural and sustainable.
