Founded in 1996, Blackpool based Healthpoint supplies healthcare and beauty products into the retail sector and has grown to become one of the largest suppliers of tertiary branded healthcare products in the UK. The business has carved a successful niche within the rapidly expanding ‘value’ segment of the personal care and beauty market, developing affordable and quality alternatives to the market leading brands.
Healthpoint has also built up its own portfolio of branded products, such as ‘Derma V10’ and ‘Clear & Simple’ and are sold across a range of well known high street retailers including Poundland, Home Bargains, Savers, Superdrug and Bodycare.
Maven completed the management buy-out of Healthpoint in 2017, funded through Maven’s co-investment network for professional clients ‘Maven Investor Partners’. The investment enabled the business to fund further product development, launch several new product lines, and drive organic growth.
“Since Maven’s investment, Healthpoint has established its reputation as a leading provider of tertiary branded products into UK retailers. It has been great to work with Amanda and her team over the last 5 years, who have delivered on their objective of expanding Healthpoint’s customer base and product range. We look forward to seeing them continue that growth under new ownership.”

“It has been a pleasure to work with Ryan at Maven and private investor Robin Womersley. It has been reassuring to have supportive investors over the last 5 years assisting the business in its continuous growth, and we look forward to working with Dayes in the future”.
