Founded in 1997, we operate from Interex House – our purpose built warehouse and office in Suffolk, East Anglia. We supply race and rally teams, constructors and performance workshops in more than 120 countries worldwide.
Our experienced technical sales staff look after our customers’ enquiries ensuring a fast, efficient and competitive service. Many of our enquiries are for highly specialised components and materials manufactured primarily for Military & Aerospace applications but are able to meet the extreme demands of motorsport. Our experience in these high-tech product areas has proved to be extremely useful to designers and constructors around the world.
Through our success of exporting motorsport components across the world, Interex was awarded The Queen’s Award for Enterprise in International Trade back in 2011.
We continue to strive towards the same high standards of customer service and trust that our customers have come to expect from us.
1997: INTEREX WAS BORN
Interex started life in a converted chicken shed in Berkshire in July 1997. With a floor that flooded every time it rained and a lack of warehouse racking, life was quite challenging. A large pothole outside the warehouse door meant that if the forklift driver did not navigate it successfully, much time would be lost digging it out! Good fortune struck when road builders were persuaded to tarmac the area in exchange for storing their JCB in our yard.
FROM LITTLE ACORNS…
Business slowly began to build and with the help of family and friends, the packing was done in the evening, often until 2am. It soon became obvious that a more salubrious premises was required, however being located in one of the most expensive areas of the country meant that finding a more suitable building was near impossible.
After much searching, in October 2000, the entire company (including our forklift) was packed in to the back of a van and moved to a brand new building on the Lion Barn Industrial Estate in Needham Market. Three people relocated with us to Suffolk which has since proved to be the ideal place for our company to grow and flourish.
BIGGER AND BETTER THINGS
We moved to Interex House which has given us room for increased growth and expansion. We employ 15 people (as well as Luca the dog, who is part-time). Through ongoing hard work, coupled with huge amounts of overseas travel, our business continues to grow and face fascinating new challenges every single day. Dealing with so many cultures and countries means that life at Interex is never boring!
Interex House – Present Day
Interex are based in Needham Market, which is approximately 1hour 20minutes from London by train. It’s a quintessential English rural town with lots of hidden gems. Set on the River Gipping, the whole High Street has been designated a Conservation Area, and anyone interested in medieval architecture will be in awe of the roof inside St John the Baptist Church, not to mention the history of the great plague, which swept the town from 1663 to 1665!
