Rigiflex Extrusions Ltd was founded in Northampton in 1960. The company grew steadily before it moved to Brixworth in 1970 and following further growth it was decided to move to an all-purpose built factory in 2007.
The company has been built on a reputation for high quality, good innovation and technical expertise with a wide range of materials to produce a range of simple and complex plastic profiles and tubes.
We pride ourselves in the service we have to offer along with the experience that 60 years of extruding plastics gives. We also believe in progress so we have an ongoing investment programme to keep improving our extrusion technology.
Manufacturing for a wide range of clients, starting with 6 machines, over the years we have increased to 11 machines, 9 single and 2 twin screw, we also have 4 jockey machines for running co/extrusions.
We can extrude in a wide range of materials PVC - RIGID & FLEXIBLE ABS ACRYLIC LDPE HDPE CO/EXTRUSIONS AND PET-G
We also have a wide selection of tube dies SQUARE, ROUND and RECTANGULAR.
Many of our clients have specific requirements that we have to meet, so right from the start we can offer advice and help in anyway we can. We also offer a fast turnaround service where possible for those who are on short lead times.
Over the years we have developed the art of running clear pvc, which we supply to the shop fitting industry for point of sale ticket strips and epos strips, we can also run the ticket strips in abs, acrylic and pet-g where specified.
We work very closely with all our clients on bespoke extrusions. We work with a vast range, from the construction industry, aircraft industry, toy industry and the point of sale industry.
Although we do not make a finished product, you will see are extrusions in most if not all of the major stores such as BOOTS, TESCO, SAINSBURY, TK MAXX, NEXT, BODYSHOP, CLINTON CARDS to name a few, plus lots of smaller shops would be fitted with our slat wall range.
Workforce & Quality
Most of our workforce have been here for a number of years so they know the standard that we and our customers are looking for, our quality control department monitor and record their findings and the m/c operators keep records as the extrusion is going through.
We can cut to length in line to +/-1mm or we can second op to a more accurate cut say +/-0.5mm. We also have the capability to drill, hole punch and apply d/sided tape.
Looking after the environment
We as a company recycle 95% of all our start up waste and can recycle pvc abs and styrene. We also buy in rigid pvc, so as you can see we are doing our bit to help the environment.
