Europe e-liquid Manufacturer Co-Packer
Why use us for co-packing?
Mantle Europe e-liquid manufacturer co-packer that you can rely on for bottle filling. You can trust that we will do what we say we will do and what you ask us to do. The vape business in the UK is notorious for getting ripped off by small unknown firms but also the better known ‘large’ e-liquid brands. A lot of these companies use their co-packing services as a way to keep new and foreign vape brands out of the local market. We don’t do that. Our co-packing service is our primary business. We strive to delight our customers and help them grow.
Our customers are our best ambassadors. Every client we have has agreed to share their experience with potential new clients. These are clients you will have heard of and respect. We don’t hide any costs. We have not raised our prices in over three years. In most cases, our prices are falling as we get better through our six sigma black belt led continuous improvement program!
Scotland has a long tradition of bringing the highest quality products to the world through striving for perfection, dedication and integrity. We are proud of our Scottish base, history and highly qualified workforce.

Good Manufacturing Practice (GMP)
The bones of our operating procedures are based on the minimum standard of Good Manufacturing Practice within the pharmaceutical sector. This means products must:
- Be of consistently high quality.
- Produced according to ISO 9001:2015 standard
- Be appropriate to their intended use.
- Meet the requirements of the marketing authorisation (MA) or product specification. For example, the MHRA in the UK.
Our GMP covers all aspects of production from the starting materials, premises, and equipment to the training and personal hygiene of staff. Detailed written procedures exist for each process that could affect the quality of the finished product. There are systems to provide documented proof that correct procedures are consistently followed at each step in the manufacturing process – every time a product is made!
ISO Certified Cleanroom Standards
Cleanrooms are classified according to the cleanliness level of the air inside them. The cleanroom class is the level of cleanliness the room complies with, according to the quantity and size of particles per volume of air. The primary authority in the US, Canada and Europe is the ISO classification system ISO 14644-1. This standard includes the cleanroom classes ISO 1, ISO 2, ISO 3, ISO 4, ISO 5, ISO 6, ISO 7, ISO 8 and ISO 9, with ISO 1 being the “cleanest” and ISO 9 the “dirtiest” class (but still cleaner than regular rooms). The most common are ISO 7 and ISO 8. Mantle Europe e-liquid Manufacturer Co-Packer cleanrooms are certified to ISO 7 for bottle filling.
The basis of cleanroom standards is the micrometre, or micron for short (µm), which is the size of the particles to be filtered. Cleanrooms are classified by how clean the air is. This is based on the quantity and size of particles per volume of air. The cleanroom classification table below shows the maximum concentration limits (particles/m3 of air) for particles equal to or larger than the considered sizes shown.
|ISO Class||Average number of air changes per hour|
|ISO 5||240–360 air changes per hour (unidirectional airflow)|
|ISO 6||90–180 air changes per hour|
|ISO 7||30–60 air changes per hour|
|ISO 8||10–25 air changes per hour|
|Conventional building||2–4 air changes per hour|
Tracking and Traceability
Our Good Manufacturing Practices and Quality Management Systems in place mean that all liquids are tracked and traced. We do this by assigning batch codes to the materials as soon as they arrive from suppliers and linking additional batch codes when we change that material. The last batch code to be assigned is when the material is transformed into a finished product that is ready to be fulfilled as an order. All batch codes are unique and have a date assigned to them.
All the batch codes of finished product within an order fulfilment shipment are linked to ensure we can trace where all batch codes went. This allows us to take the appropriate actions should a call back be issued by our clients or local regulatory body.
