Encap Castings Ltd was founded. Based in the South East of England the main focus of the company was the encapsulation of electrical components using a resin casting method perfected by the founder Mr. H. Matthews.


Encaps use of injection moulding had increased to such a degree that it was decided that the company name should be changed to reflect this. So the new title of Encap Thermoplastics Ltd. was adopted.

Over time the amount of resin cast encapsulation work reduced and injection moulding became the main activity.


Encap was bought by the current owner / manager Jim Whitehead. Jim has over fifteen years experience in toolmaking and CAD/CAM industry and so has brought with him the related technical knowledge, allowing a broader range of services to be offered.


Encap relocated to a larger premises and invested in new moulding machines to increase capacity.

Our plan for the future is to establish Encap as a leading niche injection moulding / design solution business in Essex.
