From their UK headquarters, the team produce world-leading doctor blades which can be used to print and coat paper, films such as PET, BOPP, PVC, and foils used in packaging, labelling, publications, corrugated products and displays, metal decoration and printed electronics.
The company which is still a family business and employs 3 generations of the original family is run by the founders’ 2 sons John and Neil Hailey.

Following a high demand for the blades from both traditional and new technology industries, Esterlam are in the final stages of opening their new, bigger manufacturing and Research & Development suite.
Commercial Director Neil Hailey said “We’re very excited with our latest expansion in the UK and we are looking forward to opening. The new, purpose-built facilities will enable the team to produce even greater number of our blades as well as house a larger Research & Development department and Quality Control facilities”
“We have been very fortunate to have acquired an adjoining site to our current Head Office, so we can seamlessly link the old and new. We have invested extensively in machinery and our people infrastructure which has allowed us to remain at the forefront of the industry.”

The past 40 years has proven to be a testament to our company’s commitment and we are very much looking forward to taking this further.”
