The company is also a supplier of of Spelflex suction hoses that have become a standard product for companies from North America to the Far East. In recent years they have developed materials and products which offer the physical properties of natural rubber but with UV and ozone resistance built in, to offer a longer and more cost-effective working life.
The company have relocated from Camberley in Surrey and will use the premises as their new base in the UK. The building was previously occupied by a dental laboratory that ceased operations during the Covid lockdown. There is certainly scope to improve the unit which was laid out with production and office areas on 2 levels. The new owners intend to strip out most of the internal mezzanine levels and internal fitments and return the property to a more storage and production unit.
