Our Story

Our story begins in 1994 when the company was established by John Dwyer who brought to the business 30 years experience in the personal care industry.

The initial emphasis on Product and Business Development was driven by John’s daughter Celia, with John’s son-in-law Nick bringing Operational and Client Services expertise to the mix, and son Peter managing Manufacturing and Logistics.

The family influence at NBC is still strong, but is now complemented in every way by a large team of talented and dedicated people who make a major contribution to the company’s success.

Since its inception, the company has developed and manufactured products for a large number of highly visible brands and offers a unique mix of skill and ingenuity to bring innovative and successful products to market.
