Celebrating 50 years
10 May 2013
Plastic Extruders (Plastex) has celebrated 50 years of UK based manufacturing producing polypropylene & polyester strapping at its Wickford site. Plastex is an independent, family-run business and is the UK’s largest trade only manufacturer of strapping.
Plastex manufactures enough strapping to circumnavigate the globe once every 18 days and is proud of its trade only policy. Working only with distributors of packaging systems and associated materials, Plastex offers distributors a dedicated and knowledgeable sales and technical team to ensure strapping made under an ISO quality environment, EN standard and specification.
A valuable free evaluation service allows distributors to submit as little as one metre length of strapping or a full coil to independently confirm the product's full specification. A bespoke service is also available so strapping can be custom printed for enhanced corporate identity, logos and other reasons.
