Home/About Us/History

Tyrex has been operating for more than 30 years providing sustainable solutions for your business and home by using recycled rubber to produce a range of ramps, safety and commercial products.

Tyrex was founded by two friends Peter Cross and Peter Wilson, two very outstanding gentleman who had a vision for the things they wanted to achieve with Tyrex. When the business was created the technology was very innovative for the time and there were a lot of different products manufactured. Over time the ramps became the biggest selling product range and Tyrex received many awards.

Tyrex was formerly located about 1km away from its current location in Ranton Street Cardiff. Due to health issues both Peter’s retired in 2011 and the business was purchased by its current owners. In 2013 we relocated to the current premises.

Tyrex has always focussed on continual improvement and always tried to develop the products, resulting in Tyrex more than doubling in size in the past 7 years. This has been achieved by focussing on the customers and listening to what they want.

Providing environmental sustainability solutions for landfill and environmental waste problems is what drives Tyrex innovation and its business practices.
