WHO WE ARE
Ancol Pet Products is an independent, family-owned company specialising in the supply of pet accessories for dogs, cats and small animals. From our West Midlands base in Walsall we’ve been developing pet products for discerning pet owners. In July 2021 we celebrate our 50th birthday!
When we first began, our focus was on leather dog collars and leads, which are still made in our factory today. The range and the company have expanded over the years.
Our passionate and driven staff work tirelessly to ensure every customer receives exceptional goods and exceptional service at all times.
Over 50 years of successful trading has ensured the Ancol brand is synonymous with quality. Through trend analysis, imaginative product design and rigorous testing we are ensuring exceptional Ancol products and services for the wholesaler, independent pet trade, and the end customer.
Looking to the future of the Ancol and the planet, we have developed fresh new ranges using recycled materials, and work tirelessly to reduce plastic packaging and ensure our ranges are as green as possible.
A FAMILY BUSINESS SINCE 1971
Ancol is a family-owned and family-run business. Founded in 1971 by Ann and Colin Lane, Ancol was originally a manufacturer of superior quality leather collars and leads for dogs. The range developed to include items for cats and coats for dogs, and other pet accessories soon followed.
Today, Ancol has over 2,000 different articles in the range and is rapidly growing! The success of the company has always been based around honesty and integrity along with an appetite for new and exciting product development.
Ancol have strived to remain a family business and maintain the values and principles that were there from the very first day.
Where we are now
Where we are now
Though many things have changed in 51 years, Ancol Pet Products remains a family business, with Ann and Colin’s granddaughter now head of social media, a role that could not have been imagined when the company was set up!
Ancol remains a local business situated in Walsall.
Technology has moved on and we have invested in cutting edge machinery to ensure we can continue to make quality leather goods here in the UK. Though Ancol now produces much more than dog collars, distributing various accessories for cats, dogs and small pets, we are still known first and foremost for our collar and lead offering, of which our UK-made leather products form a huge part.
