In an offer valued at roughly ₤ 60 million, online sellers The Hut Group (THG) has purchased beauty item development and making company Acheson & & Acheson in an effort to broaden within the market.

Two Wiltshire sites, specifically for packaging and distribution, also fall under the group’s ownership.
