Welcome to Ensinger UK
Ensinger was established in the UK in December 1987 with only three people at the helm. Rapidly increasing demand has since led to the growth of a further five branches at strategic locations within the UK, as well as two fully independent machine shops. Ensinger now employs around 200 people throughout the UK.
How Ensinger has grown in the UK
1987 - Ensinger opens in Llantrisant, South Wales. Following expansions in 1993 and 1998, what is now the UK headquarters, housing core functions such as accounting, quality, technical services, human resources, etc., the company moves to new, purpose-built premises in Tonyrefail, South Wales in 2005.
1988 - Ensinger UK opens its in-house machining arm at Llantrisant. This machining arm becomes an independent trading company in 2003, called Ensinger Precision Engineering Ltd.
1990 - The first satellite branch is opened at Havant in Hampshire. This branch moves to new, larger premises in Waterlooville in 2001.
1993 - Ensinger acquires plastics distribution company, Nyloplas of Warrington. To coincide with its move to larger premises in Manchester, the branch is rebranded as Ensinger in 1995.
1994 - Ensinger acquires a specialist machine shop (TRIG Engineering) in Somerset, to complement its in-house machining arm. This company also moves to new, larger, purpose-built premises in 1997.
1998 - Ensinger acquires TK Engineering Plastics, another plastics distribution company, based in Sawbridgeworth, Hertfordshire. This branch is rebranded as Ensinger in conjunction with its move to new premises in Bishop's Stortford in 2001.
2000 - Ensinger's distributor partner in Scotland, Tinto Plastics, joins the Ensinger family in the UK. This branch is rebranded as Ensinger when it opens new premises in East Kilbride later in 2000.
2001 - A completely new branch is created in Nechells, Birmingham, to more efficiently serve customers in the West Midlands and surrounding area.
Our aims for the future are dictated to a very great extent by the development of our customers' needs. Efficient synchronisation with the logistics systems of our customers is also necessary today for survival as a supplier. Whether individual stocking, call-off deliveries or just in time, anything is possible.
