SJG International

Our History

SJG International was established over 50 years ago and having acquired various companies over the years, is now in a position to service a wide range of customers operating in many different sectors.

The company began under the trading name of SJ Gaskets Ltd, the company supplied gaskets, washers and sheeting material to a wide range of customers who needed sealing solutions for various applications. The company quickly established a strong reputation for service and quality.

A short period after this the company was presented with the opportunity to become a key distributor and partner to Zotefoam PLC who were looking for companies to distribute and convert their range of Plastazote and Evazote foams.

To this day SJG are a leading UK supplier and converter of the range of Zotefoam materials (more information can be found on the foam section of the website under “Zotefoam”).

To further expand the business and the product portfolio, SJG acquired Wesco Extrusions, which add the ability to extrude rubber extrusions in various polymers and colours.

The latest acquisition by the company was completed in 2018, where we can now offer full manufacture of vacuum rings for use within the automotive industry, working with several well know clients.
