Pexa, the leading supplier of surface finishing and related materials to the aerospace, defence and other high tech industries celebrates its 10th anniversary in 2012.
The company was founded in 2002 to create a new kind of technical product distributor. Vertically aligned with its key suppliers to supply their products with a degree of service, technical know-how and product support equal to that of the manufacturer, with the additional flexibility that a distributor can provide. Many important global names have entrusted Pexa with their distribution including Akzo Nobel, Socomore, Lord Corporation, Everlube Products, Permabond and Sherwin Babbco. Pexa has added its own lines of consumables and other products to ensure that customers enjoy a one stop shop for surface finishing materials.
Pexa delivered its first order from its new premises in November 2002 and shortly after that achieved its quality approved status to ISO9001/9120 and for BAE Systems and Airbus UK. With the support of its key suppliers, Pexa has won the confidence of the most important and well regarded contractors and design engineers in the aerospace and defence markets.
In 2005 Pexa opened its subsidiary in France, which is now its most important market after the UK. In addition Pexa delivers its products to over 30 countries worldwide and has a complete export packaging capability.
Pexa has won several awards for its innovative new products including its range of small packaging solutions. Pexa is also an active member of the Aerochemicals Alliance and of important trade associations such as the NWAA and the BCF.
Pexa has grown substantially in its first 10 years and is now a leading and well recognised supplier of surface finishing products, including paints, surface treatments, cleaners, lubricants, adhesives, NDT products and application equipment. Pexa is approved by many important aircraft design organisations and supplies materials for every important civil and military aircraft programme.
Pexa continues to develop; having just completed a complete upgrade to its e-marketing suite including an on line sales outlet, remote stock management programme “MyPexaStore” and a complete range of social marketing channels.
Pexa’s team now includes a talented customer services department, qualified logistics team, sales, marketing and project engineering. The team continues to grow as Pexa develops its product range and markets, this includes its recent addition of the rapidly growing energy market to its successful activities in Aerospace.
Pexa’s mission has been from the very beginning – “To enable our customers to meet their own business objectives using our products and services”, this is still true today. Pexa’s growing, trained, experienced and motivated team will continue to deliver on this aspiration. Customers and suppliers can expect a few surprises, special offers and events during 2012 as Pexa celebrates this special anniversary.
