Kewell Converters Ltd

KCL is looking forward to its fiftieth year in 2021 demonstrating a reliability and durability only matched by its foam products themselves!

Kewell Converters Ltd (KCL) is a family business which is now run by the two sons of the original founder. A Kent based SME batch production company, they are conveniently located within sixty miles of the UK / France border and within twenty of Zotefoams plc their major raw material supplier.

KCL has been manufacturing and designing in the MoD/Defence and security industries for many decades adapting to the increasingly exacting demands of the industry from buyers to users during that time.

Kewells have a rolling programme of machinery investment which is occasionally augmented by tactical purchases to support customers and supply chains in extremis.  Though we are unable to elaborate on the supply chain for commercial confidentiality reasons the spring of 2020 saw KCL respond in a truly unprecedented way with a response for the country which included a change in shift patterns and the rapid deployment of emergency investment to answer the call. The success of this response gives further credibility to KCL’s capability to deliver for the defence and security industries where exacting standards meet operational urgency.

KCL’s measured expansion through the decades led to a sophisticated and modern 33,000 sq ft, production and design facility which became operational in 2011.

The combination of CAD/CAM design and programming along with CNC multi-head/axis routing and contour cutting enables us to offer a truly professional and custom solution to the defence and security industries.

Customers can be assured of complete confidentiality in the design and production process.

KCL is understandably proud of its record of continuous supply in areas such as ammunition packaging, ordnance protection and transportation equipment and personnel safety equipment.

Our scale enables us to be competitive both in areas of rapid response to changes in circumstances but also in terms of supplying high volume continuous demand items where appropriate or necessary for operations.

Doing business with KCL is a simple and easy process, contact our sales team with the nature of your enquiry and we will ensure it is dealt with in an efficient and confidential manner. If further design work is required, we will supply you with some outline pricing options for proceeding and show you the roadmap to being able to order your items at speed and scale.

It is highly likely we have manufactured and shipped goods very similar to your requirement already and we will make use where appropriate of our extensive design and manufacturing experience to deliver your requirements in the best value configuration possible. This optimisation is a team effort with our team and yours and we endeavour to be an extension of your own enterprise so we can both succeed. Our almost fifty years in the business is testament to the fact that we are not short-term players and seek to build relationships as enduring as our parts.

If you want to build a significant relationship with us, we encourage you to visit the production facilities and meet members of the team. Here you can see the truth behind the words and leave the delicate protection of your parts and people in our capable hands.

KCL uses a large range of Zotefoams foams which meet the following military standards as listed below:-
