This week sees Tufcot celebrate its 42nd birthday.

At its heart, Tufcot is a family business that started out in our Chairman’s garage.

However, Tufcot quickly grew to move into its first premises in 1982, a larger site in 1985 and today’s site in 2012.

We are proud to say that Tufcot now employs over 50 people and continues to grow both in the UK and abroad.

We’d like to say a huge thanks to everyone who has played a part in this incredible journey including our staff, customers, suppliers, family and friends.

We really couldn’t have done it without you!

Where It All Began

Our current chairman Elvin Majchrzak and his father Michael developed the material, founding Tufcot in 1981.

What started in a workshop garage grew into something much, much more. Tufcot were growing rapidly, but knew it would be difficult to expand the company in Elvin’s garage.

So, in 1985, we moved into a 2000 square feet factory on Catley Road, with 8 machines and 7 employees.

Just a year later, Tufcot attended a trade show to meet interested international customers. Many of these are still key customers of Tufcot today!

Tufcot were growing faster than our facilities could handle, so in 2011 Tufcot started to move to a new site, three times the size of the old one.
