Techneopro - Our Story
Established in 2003 we have become a leader in our field. We’re proud to manufacture for large companies as well as having grown with people who have come to us with an idea and now have successful businesses.
Techneopro is a British manufacturing company based in beautiful Cornwall in South West England. The team has years of experience, helping the company to grow year on year.
Techneopro was formed by Brian Warwick and Daniel Brinson to specialise in the contract manufacture of sponge neoprene products. Both Brian and Daniel have a long history of engineering, particularly in textiles. Working with various textiles provides a world of creative opportunities which is where these two excel. Present them with a concept, and they will work out a solution. That’s not to say every solution is a viable one but with their expertise they will soon know.
Neoprene is quite a unique fabric that presents its own challenges but its array of properties, finishes and feels means for every challenge there is solution.
As contract manufacturers we pride ourselves in providing a professional and quality service to all customers, whether the contract is for a single item or thousands. Our speciality is in low to medium volume production however we also have an alliance with another manufacture that can supply offshore goods for large volume contracts.
As a modern and forward thinking company, Techneopro are part of a network of Manufacturers, Designers and other complimentary companies that although independent work together to offer a wider range of one stop shop products. By working as a network each individual company can reduce its overheads by not having to duplicate expensive equipment and resources but still maintain full flexibility and resources as required.
Through this network we can offer a design and development service for most neoprene products, as well as helping you develop your own products or ideas.
