About Us

“Benefit from excellent customer service, every time”

Sabel was orinally set up by John Abel, now CEO and Chairman, following an 18 year career with Crestol ended in redundancy when the business was sold. John had close relationships with many of Crestol’s customers who encouraged him to set up for himself. They subsequently moved their business to Sabel to benefit from the same high service levels and competitive prices they had come to expect. His daughter Stephanie joined the company in 2006 and was promoted to Managing Director in 2009. His son, Simon Abel, joined in 2012 and is now Operations Director.

Today, Sabel still operates from its original 30,000ft2 Halifax site and employs 23 full-time and up to 60 temporary contract workers. It serves a wide range of customers across the UK.
Alongside the company’s core business, Sabel also produces its own range of formulations on hair care products.
The company prides itself on being able to provide excellent customer service, which is probably why many of the customers have remained as long as they have.
