The Goodflex Rubber Co. Ltd, one of the UK’s leading manufacturers and suppliers of rubber hoses, mouldings and assemblies celebrated its 15th birthday in style with a record year, two record months and a birthday cake baked by MD Mark Dufty’s daughter who was yet to be born when family-owned Goodflex was first started.
The company, who manufacture and supply hoses, mouldings and assemblies in silicone and other polymers including EPDM, FKM, NBR, HT-ACM, ECO, AEM, and EA AU, have enjoyed a year full of achievements and with the recent arrival of Natalie Benwell, Commercial Co-ordinator and role changes for Rick Whittle and Matthew Osborne, the next year is set to be an eventful year.
"To have reached our 15th year is a huge achievement for everybody here"
Talking about the continued success and growth of the business, Mark Dufty said: “To have reached our 15th year is a huge achievement for everybody here at Goodflex and its testament to our very special team and our amazing customers and suppliers that have made it happen.”
He continued: “It’s also a very proud moment for us here at Goodflex as a truly remarkable member of the family, Emma Lowe, is flying the nest to embark on the next step of her career with another remarkable business, renowned in the Cotswolds farming world.”
He added: “But as I have said before, if you’re not moving forward then you are – in actual fact – going backward so it’s important to remember that as part of our strategy we have invested significantly on our raw materials processing to minimise the impact of price instability caused by Brexit and the weakness in the pound.”
“And 2017 will see us expand significantly in new products and markets with other key investments in new machinery and processes. It’s going to be a very exciting year.”
