Made in Britain Logo ReducedPipex Limited was established in 1975 by its current Chairman Mr Alan Smith MBE, and today remains a successful privately owned, family run, specialist UK based manufacturing, engineering & construction business.
The original business model focused on supplying prefabricated corrosion resistant thermoplastic pipe systems for chemical & laboratory waste to blue-chip pharmaceutical customers such as GlaxoSmithKline & Pfizers, both here in the UK but also globally and especially to The Middle East (the company name “Pipex” is derived from a simple acronym of “Pipe Exporter/Expert”). These original pipe systems have been continually enhanced & remain an element of our core products to this day as Chemsafe® & Biosafe®.

Throughout the 1980’s & 1990’s Pipex Limited increased its capabilities in new fields of lightweight, corrosion resistant GRP pipework and FRP structures, and established a number of Pipex trading division companies as a result and to focus our growing engineering expertise into specific areas.

Recent years have seen rapid growth, on applications as diverse as “wastewater to warships” and all in between, driven by a dynamic staff team, continual reinvestment, numerous flagship project deliveries, ongoing R&D innovation and launching new unique proprietary products.

Today we are a group of companies, operating under the single brand and trading style Pipex px®. Our materials of manufacture are typically high quality thermoplastics (PP, HDPE, PVDF etc) and advanced composites (FRP, GRE, GRP, GRV, Phenolic etc). Our principle sales markets include, but are not limited to, Water & Wastewater, Chemical & Industrial, Transport, Oil & Gas, Marine, Offshore, Sustainable & Green, Subsea, Architectural, Civil Construction, Power & Renewable Energy.

Pipex px® have achieved and successfully maintain the internationally recognised ISO 9001, OHSAS 18001 and ISO 14001 standards and operate a continual improvement strategy for our business management systems, which is strictly adhered to.

Pipex px® are both proven & unique, globally supplying unrivalled advanced bespoke manufacturing capabilities, advanced materials know-how, bespoke fabrications, expert engineering services, design & build project competencies and modular construction products, all to suit customer specific requirements.

Our historical ethos of “protecting the environment”, still underpins our core ethos today of “px”, or “producing excellence”, in all that we do. For example, in 2010 we were voted the overall best SME manufacturing business in the United Kingdom by the Institute of Mechanical Engineers, securing a prestigious MX Award.

Pipex px® believe The Customer is King, and we look forward to welcoming & working with you to deliver the product or project solution you need.
