A brief history

Since July 1994 epco has been on an incredible journey of success. Starting as the “Enterprise Plastic Company”, we incorporated as “epco limited” in November 1994.

Our early decision to specialise in industrial pipes and industrial pipe fittings enabled us to develop as a highly reputable supplier, able to offer products for both national and international requirements.

epco achieved its first £1M turnover in 1995/96, one year after the company was incorporated. Our largest order was placed and shipped in 2007 for a large mining pipeline project in Africa, totalling €2.3 million.

epco Plastics success has been built on highly skilled and dedicated team members, all of whom have an in-depth wealth of knowledge in industrial pipe products. Our partnership with Comer Italy, as their exclusive UK distributor transformed epco once again. We brought the Comer brand into the UK market and have worked closely with them ensuring products are designed and engineered to the highest technical quality and specifications. Today Comer plastics is one of the most widely used and trusted brands in the market.

In 2009 we expanded our warehouse facility to 45,000 square foot. This substantial indoor & outdoor warehouse with yard, multiple loading bays, trade counter, office & conference room provides us the space needed for all future expansion plans currently in place.
