Rubber is one of the most versatile materials on the planet and it’s found in many different products. Rubber hoses are used to transport gases and liquids, and gaskets and seals are installed to provide airtight surfaces in everything from windows and cars to medical supplies and food manufacturing equipment.
While standard dies are available for a lot of modern products, many businesses often require bespoke solutions. If you are designing a new product or replacing seals on a classic car or old piece of equipment, for instance, custom-made rubber parts may well be the most cost-effective solution. Finding someone who can deliver for you, can be challenging.
The good news is that Ley Rubber is one of the leading manufacturers and suppliers of custom-made rubber parts in the UK today. Based in the Northwest, we’ve been delivering quality for customers all around the world since the late 1950s.
Who Is Ley Rubber?
We’re a family-run business that was established in 1956. Over the years we’ve grown to become one of the leading manufacturers of rubber extrusions of all kinds, servicing industries as varied as the automotive, marine, construction and food and scientific sectors.
One of the key benefits for your business in partnering with our team is that we can provide bespoke solutions with quick lead-in and development times and competitive pricing.
Industries We Provide Custom-Made Rubber Parts For
There probably isn’t an industry or sector on the planet today that we haven’t at one time or another provided our services to. When it comes to custom rubber parts, precision and high-quality materials are critical. With our state-of-the-art design software, you can be 100% sure you’re getting a product that is fit for purpose and made to exacting standards.
Here are just some of the ways our customer-made rubber parts manufacturing services are helping businesses in all sectors to move forward.
Over the years we’ve built some strong relationships with manufacturing companies to provide their rubber seals, gaskets and other parts. The automotive industry is, of course, highly competitive and while it may be on the decline around the world, it’s thriving in others.
Accessing high-quality components at a competitive cost is critical to success. We use only the best materials and can quickly produce large quantities of different components from glazing sections and windows and door seals to simple tubing and washers. The materials we use can include EPDM, Neoprene and NBR, Silicone, PVC and Viton depending on the component that we are working on.
The food manufacturing industry in the UK is thriving and growing at an amazing rate. Many companies use machinery and automated processes to help get food into supermarkets and onto our plates at a competitive cost. Tubing and other customer rubber parts for this industry have to meet high grades set out in health and safety regulations which is why companies often go for a bespoke service like that offered by Ley Rubber.
Everything from milking machines on farms to machinery that is used to wash down equipment needs to be hygienically clean and made from high-quality materials. Businesses need to be certain that the customer rubber parts they order are FDA-compliant and that usually means working with a supplier that can be trusted.
We’ve partnered with many businesses in the construction sector over the years and have been involved in creating innovation through customer rubber parts. Over the last 70 years, we’ve seen a massive change in construction processes that has often meant our expert design teams have had to be at the top of their game.
As with other industries, the construction sector needs to ensure high safety standards whilst also helping to minimise the costs. Working with a company like Ley Rubber makes perfect sense because we not only have thousands of standard dies and designs ready to be manufactured at volume but we can also deliver bespoke solutions quickly and sustainably.
Like the automotive industry, the marine industry relies heavily on a wide range of different rubber components from seals to gaskets and engine parts. The marine industry covers everything from sales of private yachts and boats to the huge transportation tankers that deliver products all around the world.
Rubber products like EPDM and neoprene are used because of their flexibility. On occasion, a specialist customer rubber part is needed in small quantities for a specific problem and that’s where a team like Ley Rubber can come into their own.
The UK today has a burgeoning scientific sector with hubs for research and development growing up in many major cities. Ley Rubber has long had a strong relationship with universities and schools as well as private R&D organisations, providing them not only with standard tubing and rubber bungs but bespoke solutions as well.
Rail & Coach Sector
Another industry where we have built strong relationships over the last 70 years is the rail and coach sector. Every day, thousands of buses and trains traverse the countryside and all of these vehicles have a range of different rubber seals and products associated with them. For the rail and coach sector, having a reliable supplier of rubber extrusions of all types is essential, which is why many have forged a relationship with Ley Rubber.
