Tappex – Brexit Strategy and Planning

Written on February 4, 2019 in Blog


We’d like to reassure all of our customers that Tappex are well placed to provide excellent continuity of service over the next few months.


As a UK manufacturer, we have the ability to plan and manufacture our products, no matter what the result of the Brexit negotiations, or final deal may be. We have over the last year been increasing our stock-holding of raw material and finished goods and currently we have in excess of 40 Million inserts in stock, which can generally be despatched on a next day carrier (to UK customers).

If you need goods delivered outside of the UK, we are focussing on becoming a HMRC Authorised Economic Operator. This will ensure ‘fast track’ clearance at the ports, minimising the effects of any disruption by prioritising our imports and exports, for clearance through customs.

We are also investigating the potential for European warehousing, controlled from within the Tappex Group, should it become necessary.


Tappex Thread Inserts was established in 1956 and are a family owned, and financially stable organisation, with the ability to respond to the challenges that we are all likely to face, over the coming months.

You can have complete confidence that the Tappex Group of companies will continue to monitor the situation closely and react swiftly to support you and your organisations.
