Interplex PMP Ltd

Barlow adds the company’s ability to successfully compete with lower-cost economies is down to a combination of quality products, flexible design services and fully manufacturing products in-house with Interplex PMP already shipping to customers in the Czech Republic, Poland and Romania. "This award demonstrates what can be achieved when you combine a highly motivated and skilled workforce with a robust business strategy and fully- integrated in-house capabilities.” INTERPLEX PMP LTD Elliot Industrial Estate, Arbroath DD11 2NN Tel: +44 (0)1241-873867 Fax: +44 (0)1241-879597

Interplex PMP Ltd has been awarded The Queen’s Award for International Trade in recognition of the company’s substantial growth in overseas earnings and commercial success. The business supplies the Automotive, Telecommunications and Medical industries and as the result of a five year plan, Interplex PMP turned heavy trading losses into profit, tripling annual sales to £17m and increasing overseas trade by 360%. Stephen Barlow, Managing Director, said that the successful turnaround has also helped to secure and create more jobs in Arbroath. “Since I joined the company in 2010, we’ve seen employee numbers increase from 80 people on a three day week to over 170 staff with the capacity to work 24/7. The company has a great heritage in precision engineering and an excellent reputation for producing high-quality products. If you drive a car or use a broadband connection, the chances are that they contain components manufactured by Interplex. Few companies in Europe are fully integrated with the core capabilities we have to stamp, plate and mould under one roof. Being a design-driven business also gives us a competitive advantage, allowing us to go deeper with our customers to solve many of their design challenges.”


interplex PmP manufactures precision components including stamped and plated parts, plastic mouldings including insert moulding and in-line moulding, assemblies and tape and reel packaging. founded in 1968, interplex PmP offers a ’one stop shop’ facility, working in conjunction with customer product designers from the outset of a project to determine the best and most cost-effective solutions.
