Our History

We have been established since February 1997 and since then, UK Industrial Tapes Ltd have become a leading manufacturer, converter & supplier of adhesive tapes and adhesive product.

We opened for business on the 17th February 1997 by current Managing Director Brian Welch. Brian has over 35 years’ experience in the adhesive tape industry. Starting with 5 employees in February 1997, our family orientated business has evolved and developed over the years to over 65 staff working from our modern HQ in Newcastle Upon Tyne

Starting our supply in 1997 as mainly packing supplies and general-purpose tapes, we have diversified into the converting and supply of high performance and technical adhesive tapes and adhesive products in 2021.

Investment into our production department around 2000, meant we started our journey in conversion. Our production now sits with over 30 converting machines which run on a 3-shift system Monday to Friday. Ranging from automated high precision lathe slitting, rotary die cutting, jumbo re winding, slit and rewinding, shrink wrapping, injection moulding and a contract packing department, plus much more.

To date we heavily supply our adhesive tapes and adhesive products into the Construction, Roofing, Glass & Glazing, Picture Framing, Hobby & Craft, Point of Sale, Automotive and Sign & Graphics industry, with our products approved by industry leading companies, systems and certifications.

Within UK Industrial Tapes Ltd, we have two trading divisions which we supply our product range to the Hobby & Craft and Point of Sale industries.
