Tubex has been at the forefront of shelter development since the first research into treeshelters was coming to fruition in the early 1980s. The Tubex brand is now recognised worldwide as one representing quality of product and service.
Our objective is to add value to our customers. We can only do this through understanding their needs and this can only be done properly in each market sector.
The Tubex team combines a range of in-house and external expertise around the world. Our R&D manager, Dr Bhukan Parbhoo, runs a range of projects in collaboration with research institutions in the UK and abroad. In order to assist this development programme, we have a Technical Advisory Panel that helps us to challenge both the technical and practical requirements of our products.
Our in-house sales team includes expertise and experience in forestry, agronomy, agriculture, fruit and horticulture. We couple this with and rely heavily upon the expertise of our distributors who are invaluable in providing local market expertise.
We sell a range of products that are all intended to improve the establishment of young plants. Within that portfolio it is the tree or vine shelter that is the key product. It is often said that our Tubex tree and vine shelters sell themselves. There are many individual product features that make our products the preferred choice for many, but it’s the all-round package that is so appealing: fit for purpose, fit for the plant, fit for the planter, fit for your pocket.
Quality is important to us, as highlighted Tubex' recent accreditation to ISO 9001:2008 following the external audit carried out by SGS (UK). This prestigious award for business quality management ensures that Tubex operates to the highest standards of meeting customers requirements. We have achieved ISO 14001 (environmental management) and we are working towards OHSAS 18001 (health and safety) standards.
Many of our customers require the product in the right place and at the right time. Weather can play havoc with planting schedules! This is why we operate a combination of direct selling and distribution through sub-distributors.
Through our experience and our commitment to quality we can and do stand behind our products. This is an important consideration when often your plants only have one chance. standard terms and conditions.
