Who We Are.

Essex Tubes manufacture all types of cardboard tubes and cores for a variety of different projects. We supply our customers with standard postal tubes from A3 to B0 sizes but also create bespoke cardboard cores for industries ranging from film production to construction. 

We can create cardboard tubes up to 13 metres in length with diameters ranging from 34mm to 656mm. Our team of helpful staff have a wealth of knowledge and experience. 

Essex Tubes are an eco-friendly company and we pride ourselves on creating 100% recyclable products made from 100% recycled materials. 



Essex Tubes began production in August 1989. Since then we have gained extensive experience in the field of cardboard tubes. We have always been at the forefront of cardboard tube manufacturing and we only use the highest quality materials, ensuring our products are extremely durable and sturdier than the packaging industry standard.
