Our History

Since its founding in 1964, Croylek Limited has continually developed as a business year on year. The aim was (and always will be) to provide our industrial, electrical and electro-mechanical customers with high quality insulation materials and products.

At the centre of its success, Croylek values the strong relationship it has with customers and suppliers. The aim is to maintain and develop these partnerships whist looking forward to the future, working closely with clients on new and exciting projects around the world.

Here is a brief look at our history:

1963 - Croylek Limited was registered.

1964 - Croylek Limited began trading. The office was originally located in South Croydon. The original company focus was towards the provision of products and services to customers in traditional industries such as ‘Electric Motor Manufacture & Repair’ and ‘Coil Winding’.

1979 - Due to the rapid growth and success of Croylek, the company relocated to its new premises in Coulsdon, Surrey.

1998 - The company attained ISO 9000 certification.

1999 - Croylek went through a successful management buyout. This resulted in a change of strategy, which provided Croylek with the opportunity to explore and successfully enter different industry sectors, where our existing product range was of high interest and value. The company also expanded on its value-added processing capabilities and offered customers in specific industries a wide range of processed parts.

2006 - As part of our global development strategy, the first Croylek overseas office was opened in Hong Kong in order to provide products and services to the Far East market, with emphasis on mainland China.

2007 - Croylek Limited underwent Phase 1 of its warehouse and head office redevelopment, which resulted in the company doubling its floor space and trebling its stock volume. The Coulsdon branch successfully acquired the Croylek Somerset branch, taking over its operations.

2011 - Croylek Limited purchased the trading rights and business activities of Vulcascot Industrial Laminates Ltd. This enhanced Croylek’s position in the Industrial Laminates market, whilst providing an excellent platform to promote its range of Croylam products.

2013 - Phase 2 of the factory redevelopment is completed, creating a state of the art production facility with additional mezzanine area, greatly increasing capacity.

2014 - Croylek Limited celebrates its 50th anniversary.
