Elder Engineering (Herts) Ltd was formed in 1980 as a privately owned company to supply engineering plastic materials in semi finished stock shapes. The range quickly developed to include Industrial and High Performance advanced plastics enabling Elder’s customers to purchase today’s complete range of materials from one source..

New innovations including PTFE and UHMWP with adhesive led to the introduction of high performance adhesive tapes and high quality silicone rubber and sponge products.

It was a natural progression for Elder to supply customers with finished components to their drawings. The high level of technical expertise at Elder coupled with our own design capabilities means that we can make a contribution to the solution of your technical problems.

Elder, has certification to AS9100 Rev D and BS EN ISO 9001:2008 and in addition, many individual company approvals have been attained. This ensures that quality and service at a competitive price remains the constant priority.

Today, Elder is a leading supplier of plastics, tapes, rubber and X-Ray test pieces to ECAC and are extremely proud of their official partnerships with Saint-Gobain Performance Plastics and Saint-Gobain Performance Plastics Tygaflor Ltd. These relationships will continue to ensure that Elder remains at the leading edge for supplying new and established products.
