Milton was named in honour of the poet, John Milton (1608-1674), as its products were first manufactured in the house in which he wrote “Paradise Lost”; an epic poem that is considered to be one of the greatest English literary works. The Company’s heritage also includes formerly owners Procter and Gamble Ltd, giants in cleaning agents and personal care products, with annual revenues in the region of 80 billion. Under their ownership, the dissolvable Milton Sterilising tablets were developed and launched; as used today.

Use the winning AIDA formula of Attention, Interest, Desire, and Action to get customers involved. You would certainly agree that visually appealing shelves are more likely to sell items when compared to a dilapidated or bland display shelf that’s in disarray. When a display shelf is colourful and organized, your customers are more likely to pick something up from it because they are confident that all the products here are new, clean and worth it. Together we can use the right signage to sign off many successful sales for you!
