About Partex

Partex Marking Systems are designed to help identify cables, wires and pipes, in and around junction boxes and enclosures, quickly and accurately, every time.

We at Partex have many years' experience of developing and manufacturing marking systems. The tangible results can be seen in the form of a range of products that meet the most rigorous of international requirements and can be found in installations practically the whole world over.

Here in the UK we take pride in our record of supplying our customers worldwide for four decades with quality cable accessories. Starting from a small office in the local High Street, we have grown continuously. Today, still based in Coleshill near Birmingham, we operate from a state of the art 20,000 sq ft facility.

During the last 40 years we have fuelled our growth by offering our customers personal service, high quality products and competitive pricing. We look forward to being of service to you.


Partex was formed in 1948 in Gullspång, central Sweden, under the name of Elektro-Lööf. Stockholmer Tore Lööf had begun working as an electrical assembler at the Gullspång power plant, where he was inspired to create several labour-saving inventions. By the mid 1950's, Tore Lööf had developed the product that would give the company its name, the Partex marking sleeve.

Over the years we have developed many new and innovative marking systems, making Partex the world's number 1 marking systems manufacturer.
