Our History

We have been established since February 1997 and UK Industrial Tapes are now a leading manufacturer, converter & supplier of adhesive tapes.

We opened for business on the 17th February 1997 by current MD Brian Welch, who has over 30 years’ experience in the adhesive tape industry. Starting with 5 employees in 1997, our family orientated business has evolved and developed and we currently have over 65 staff working out of our modern HQ in Newcastle Upon Tyne.

Starting our supply in the earlier years with a core range of double sided tapes and packaging products, we diversified our business in the last 20 years to become a leading converter and supplier of specialised, high performance tapes.

We supply our specialist, high performance adhesive tapes into a vast range of industries and applications in the UK and also worldwide, such as Europe, Australia, USA, Canada, Russia, Africa, South America and many more.

We have developed 2 brands which are trading divisions to UK Industrial Tapes Ltd, Stix2 and POS Tapes. In 2003 we developed Stix2, which is the UK’s leading supplier of Tapes and Adhesives to the Craft and Hobby market in the UK. In 2008 we developed POS Tapes, which has quickly become a leading supplier to the UK and European Point of Sale market, with our range of Hang Tabs, Wobblers, Tapes, Adhesive and Plastic Display Products.
