About Us

Contex has been producing innovative world-beating engineering solutions of the highest quality for over 30 years, and continues to thrive in an increasingly competitive marketplace.



We specialise in anodising, machining and pre-production – our target is 'right, first time, on time, every time'.



At Contex we appreciate that industrial design and mechanical design are two distinct disciplines and we are practiced in working with customers where these disciplines have been incorporated.
