About Us

Tapeswitch Ltd is part of the global Tapeswitch group of companies manufacturing products based on Tapeswitch ribbon switch and associated technologies.

We’re based in Chorley, Lancashire, from where we sell and distribute products worldwide.

A long-established operation

The original Tapeswitch company was formed in the USA in 1957, and acquired by Indel in 1986. The UK company was established in 1991 , with our purpose-built factory opening in 1997.

Innovative engineering

The growth of the UK business has been built around designing and manufacturing innovative customised products to meet specific customer needs. We love a challenge: if it hasn’t been done before, we’ll find a way!

Our recent investment in industrial 3D printers has increased our capacity, giving us the potential to turn even more designer visions into reality.

Our skilled engineers, designers and applications experts have a deep knowledge of the technology. Looking beyond the obvious, they can help you achieve solutions far beyond your expectations.

Many of our customers come back to us time and time again as they develop new products – because they know we understand their challenges and will work closely with them to find the best way forward.
