The largest dedicated PUC manufacturing facility in the UK

The only factory with automated pipe bending

An investment of over £500,000 to create a fully equipped robotic production line for frame manufacture and CNC pipe fabrication.

It is the only facility in the UK with automated computer controlled pipe bending, eliminating up to 80% of jointing in a typical cupboard.

Our process driven approach separates us from the existing supply chain. Process, automation, MRP system controls drives our business and will be applied from the outset – coupled with our drive to innovate this is what sets the Apex Core apart.

We will set a new benchmark for quality, capacity and service in this sector and be in a unique position to deliver a highly competitive product range. It is our intention that our price point will be market leading for the highest specification product.


The Apex Core has been designed to incorporate existing technology and next-gen equipment, that ensures it is fit for the future.

Every Apex Core unit is designed, manufactured and delivered from our Durham headquarters… proudly, Made in Britain.
