Quality in everything we do

Automotive Seating

We have extensive experience in the automotive seating industry and are a trusted partner for many new automotive seating projects. We offer one of the largest ranges of automotive trim retainers, in both standard and bespoke profile designs using the latest precision technologies, as well as COBAflex / Tie Down solutions and injection moulded ‘gap filling’ components.

Technical Automotive

As a Tier 1 and OEM supplier of TPV based sealing systems, we work very closely with our automotive customers to develop and manufacture a range of effective solutions that fulfil the applications and our customers’ requirements. COBA products are typically used in under bonnet, glass, roof ditch and weather seal as well as bespoke interior applications.

Non-Automotive

We are experienced in manufacturing thermoplastic solutions in a range of materials for other sectors. Some examples of this include tubing for medical applications, industrial profiles as well as rigid plastic cores used in the packaging, food, silage and adhesive tapes industries.
