50 Years of British Manufacturing


50 years

Our journey has been marked by continuous innovation and a dedication to meeting and exceeding customer expectations. Initially founded to manufacture channel and oval alongside other electrical components, such as switchgear and trade injection moulding and extrusion parts, we opened our first manufacturing facility open in Redditch, Worcestershire.

Shortly after this, we developed our offering to incorporate conduit and fittings. Following this success, we then proceeded into manufacturing mini and maxi trunking all of which are still available today. To cope with the growing demands of the market, prepare for future growth and for more efficient logistics, in 1987, we moved to our current operational facility, double the size of the previous facility with a huge investment in additional extrusion lines and an in-house PVCu mixing plant.

In 1992, we launched our popular President trunking range, one of the markets first three compartment trunking ranges. On the back of the success of this range, further investments were made to tool up and manufacture the Campus range in 1996 and the Kensington range in 1999.  In 2003, we launched the bench trunking for alternative cable management support in educational and healthcare sectors. 2011 and 2012 saw significant investment again in extrusion lines, injection moulding machines to enable an increased stock holding. Our Meridian three compartment dado trunking range was designed and introduced to the market in 2015 to offer a modern, mid-range option. A more recent milestone saw the renovations of our state-of-the-art Fabrication Department in 2018 to accommodate customer specified bespoke solutions and PVCu mixing plant in 2019

Over the past 50 years, we have meticulously moulded a diverse product range, through our origins of customer focused product development. This broad spectrum of products caters to the evolving needs of the industry, ensuring that we remain at the forefront.

In addition, for half a century, we have fine-tuned our ability to create bespoke solutions that go beyond our off-the-shelf offerings which highlights our dedication to British Manufacturing. This special fabrication service emphasises our commitment to providing customers with precisely what they require.

Beyond this we are aware of our environmental responsibility and will continue to proactively work to minimising our impact. Large investments in plant to aid the process of recycled materials and switching packaging supplies, such as using cardboard along with polythene lay flat tubing and bags containing recycled content have helped us reduce our carbon footprint, achieving Planet Mark and Ecovadis accreditation and further enhanced our commitment to a more sustainable future.

We couldn’t commemorate this momentous achievement without extending our heartfelt appreciation to our workforce, who have been the backbone of our success. With some staff reching lengths of service upwards of 45 years, their loyalty and hard work have shaped the legacy we celebrate this year.

As we extend our gratitude to all who have played a part in our first 50 years, we eagerly anticipate the opportunities and challenges that lie ahead. With the same passion and resilience that have defined us for five decades, we pledge to forge ahead while staying true to our values.
