Ru-bix recently announced that it is gearing up for full production this month, which will involve utilizing a tripling of capacity. The company reports that it has implemented all COVID-19 safety measures and is seeing increased demand, especially in the UK where the polyurethane tooling board industry is now more focused on quality and durable supply chains.

Ru-bix specializes in the use of advanced thermoset polymers for prototyping and modelling purposes, including a range of different density polyurethane tooling boards and blocks, adhesives, filler, and liquid systems. The move from 7,000 to 20,000 sq ft has reportedly enabled the company to keep high stock levels, enabling fast and efficient deliveries to all parts of the UK.

The facility includes an integrated Research and Development laboratory, which has been the focus of the company for the past year during the lockdowns. This has reportedly allowed continuous improvement and innovation for all of Ru-bix's in-house formulated products, and a number of new products will be launched later this year.

"We have spent the last year building solid foundations for the company, including manufacturing in-demand stock which facilitates responding quickly to customer needs; in-depth research and development which enables us to identify and prepare the products of the future; and implementing several quality systems and processes, which are helping us to get it right, first time, time-after-time," said Ash Colvin, managing director.
