The company, which remains family owned, was founded in 1942 as C&C Marshall Ltd. From day one it specialised in producing a variety of PVC products and quickly established a reputation as a pioneer of PVC extrusion and injection moulding techniques. By the early 1950s success saw the business outgrowing its manufacturing base in North London and in 1956 it relocated to a far larger site in Hastings, East Sussex, where it remains to this day as one of the largest independent employers in the town.
The move to Hastings also saw the company establish the selling (commercial) arm of the business as Marshall-Tufflex Ltd. The market-leading tried-and-trusted brand of cable management systems was born. Today Marshall-Tufflex produces the most comprehensive range of PVC-U cable management solutions including Odyssey, the only all-curved profile on the market. In addition it offers a wide variety of profiles, sizes and finishes in PVC-U, aluminium, steel, GRP plus its Bio antimicrobial system. Many are Cat 6 compliant and all come with full suites of accessories. Bespoke orders are dealt with by a dedicated ‘specials’ team.
