Makevale’s history


The Makevale concept was born in the Ahir family kitchen in North London, in 1979.


Before long, premises were hired in Stoke Newington and Makevale Ltd was established in 1980.


Production grew quickly, and in 1986 manufacturing was shifted from Stoke Newington to a larger site in Ware. The Ware factory allowed for greater manufacturing capacity and greater scope for R&D.


In 1999 Makevale acquired its facility in Blackpool, allowing the company to increase its polymer production and extend its Adicryl™ range. A five-year programme to modernise both UK sites resulted in greater efficiency and output.


From 2000-2005, the owners actively grew interests in distribution companies


In 2006, Dr Val Ahir was joined by his son, Dr Samit Ahir, who is now the company’s CEO.


2008 saw Makevale integrate core functions and streamline business operations with an Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) system.


In 2009 Makevale opened a state-of-the-art manufacturing facility in India, allowing the company to extend its reach into the Asian markets and expand its product range.

Makevale’s vision

We wish to touch the lives of everyone. Our polymers are far back in the supply chain and enable a multitude of products to be made throughout the world. Many of our polymers are designed to be used in or on the body safely.

Our research looks at how our own carbon footprint can be lowered and how our polymers can be more easily recycled as well as pushing the envelope of what’s possible with our chemistry.
