Mastering the manufacturing behind a new and innovative product is a task engineer’s relish. Lesjöfors subsidiary European Springs & Pressings got stuck right into the project when approached by the sticky tape dispenser company, TapePal.

Karl Hurrell, the director and creator behind the soon to be launched, revolutionary compact hand-held tape dispenser, TapePal, approached European Springs & Pressings looking to them to solve the final sticking point in his product.

Karl says - Most companies I approached turned me away. It was only European Springs & Pressings that could give us what we needed. Not only did they recognise the potential of the product, they also showed belief in me and took the time to discuss my sketches, refining and engineering them in to designed solutions, creating bespoke tools to deliver a manufacturing solution. The spring ‘finger’ they crafted is singly the most important element of the design and you could say, they have completely ‘wrapped up’ the development and production of TapePal.

Stuart McSheehy, Managing Director of European Springs & Pressings says - Creating bespoke tool making equipment to manufacture a design solution for a specific pressed metal or wire form element is quite unique in comparison to other UK spring and pressing manufacturers.

I believe what really sets us apart is our ability to take our customers ideas and concepts and engineer them into reality, ready for both low and high volume production.

Stuart continues - This is all about keeping it personal, listening to their needs and using our combined skill sets, and some of the very best manufacturing technologies available, to solve their problems and meet their demands.

Working with Karl and TapePal has been a pleasure and we’re looking forward to seeing TapePal become the successful business it deserves.
