Based in Sholing near Southampton, a manufacturer of rubber-based products have received a grand total of £124,000 in R&D tax credits for six years (2012-2017), with the latest Reality Cheque for over £13,000.

Research and development is carried out to compete with cheap imports who heavily rely on cheap labour. Therefore R&D is utilised to create cost-effective solutions for producing products in-house with advanced, automatic manufacturing techniques. The process and product range has been developed with alternative materials whilst maintaining the functionality and performance of the original rubber-based products.
